About me

Hi. Do you need to spend some time focussing on your emotional wellbeing? Finding the right counsellor is an important first step. I have a friendly and relaxed approach to counselling. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can talk about whatever it is you need to talk about.

I help people who are anxious and on the brink of burnout to get back into a more balanced way of life. Having been a GP for 20 years I have a special interest in working with anyone from a healthcare background but I am happy to work with people from all other professions. Work based stress can have a significant impact on all aspects of your life. Counselling gives you the opportunity to unburden yourself from some of those pressures and work out what is really important to you.

Counselling gives you the chance to start to understand why you might be finding things difficult right now. You can develop an awareness of how past life events might be influencing your current situation and making you feel the way you do. There may be some things that you want to change and some things that are easier to understand once you have shared them. I want to give you the confidence and motivation to make the changes that feel right for you, so you can start to feel differently and develop a more compassionate view of yourself. 

I work in an integrative way which means I can draw on both humanistic and psychodynamic approaches to counselling alongside some CBT techniques. I am happy to work with both long and short term clients and we can discuss your needs as they develop. We will review the work regularly to make sure you are happy with the progress you are making. I can offer both face to face sessions or online therapy via zoom, or a mixture of both depending on your preference. My office is in the South Devon, easily accessible from Torbay and the South Hams. It offers a calm and relaxing space for clients who want in person therapy.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
