About me

Do you find yourself putting on a brave face but feeling very different on the inside? Perhaps you’re empty and numb, or overwhelmed by emotions? Are you finding it hard to cope day-to-day? I know how tough life can be at times and how lonely it feels when no one seems to understand.

If you’re wondering when you’ll feel happy or hopeful again, or you’re worrying about the future and fearing the worst, or maybe you’re struggling with a big change and a sense of who you are; I’d like to help. Being able to talk freely to someone, without fear of judgement or shame, can be a huge relief.

How can I help?

I support adults affected by low self esteem, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues, often those who have experienced the death of a loved one, a major loss or life event, or child sexual abuse.

Our work together can help ease your pain, and support you to feel calmer, to cope more easily, and to feel better about yourself. We will go at your pace and, whatever comes up, we can try and make sense of it together.

Next step...

I work on a one-to-one basis either online or from my therapy room in Exeter. I offer a free initial call or meeting, giving us a chance to get to know each other a little before you commit to anything. It’s important you choose a counsellor you feel comfortable with.

Drop me an email and we can arrange a time to have an informal chat. I look forward to hearing from you. Take care.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Iron Mill College in Exeter. I also volunteer at The Margaret Jackson Centre in Exeter.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
