My work is based on the understanding that it is our subconscious limiting beliefs and unresolved patterns that keep us unwell, stuck, limited, or unhappy. Through a combination of Counselling and Energy Psychology Techniques I will help to remove any negative beliefs you may have about yourself or the world, which stand in the way of you manifesting your true potential, transforming them into positive, empowering beliefs. This will help you to have a more positive attitude towards life and thereby open yourself to experiencing more happiness, emotional freedom and calmness in your life.
I have a private practice near Torquay Seafront in Livermead, in which I provide a bright, quiet, comfortable and safe space to talk. I use various approaches tailored to suit your individual concerns. These may include family/relationship problems, worry, abuse, anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, loss/bereavement and phobias. I have a special interest in trauma, having worked with the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, HM Prison Service and Devon and Cornwall Police for many years.
Training, qualifications & experience
Following a seventeen year career as a State Registered Podiatrist within the NHS, in 2006 I completed a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and Therapy at Dartington. I then extended my field of practice by training in EFT (Tapping) with Accredited Master Trainer of Trainers, Rowena Beaumont in Glastonbury. I then trained in Matrix Reimprinting with EFT Founding Master, Karl Dawson.
In early 2021 I became a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner.
To maintain my accredited status with the BACP and EFT International, I undertake continued professional development and I adhere to a Code of Ethics. EMDR, PSYCH-K® are areas of interest, in which I have also been trained.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
