About me

Welcome, I’m a Higher Accredited psychotherapeutic counsellor, offering talk therapy in Tiverton, Mid Devon and remotely.

Therapy is a conversation held in a steady, regular setting, away from everyday expectations and assumptions. Daily life may appear hurried or fixated on certain roles, but therapy shows us an alternative: a chance to be sincerely inquisitive about what is happening. Therapy becomes important when your authentic experience is too important to ignore. Whatever you struggle with personally, we can meet with the intention to grasp what is really going on.

I am interested in helping people who have difficulty getting by or along with others, even when the reasons for this feel confusing or unclear. My specialism looks at what happens between people, and the ways things outside of awareness can influences this. I would especially welcome working with you wherever your experience has not met with recognition, as can happen in contexts like expressing gender, living with disability, being neurodivergent or surviving abuse

For an initial appointment to talk about what brings you to therapy, please email or leave me a message. It’s enough just to be curious at first. To help you discover how psychotherapeutic counselling may help you, I offer the first exploratory session at the lowest price.

See my website for more on all this.
