About me

I offer Counselling, Psychotherapy and Psychological Assessment.  I have worked in the field for twenty five years. I see clients in both Tiverton and Exeter.  I work with Children, Adults and Families.  I am also an Adoption Support Agency registered with Ofsted as Outstanding working with Adoptive Children and Families.  I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and have Senior Accreditation with BACP.  I work with the most frequent mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety and panic.  I have experience of working in the NHS with Eating Disorders.  I specialise in Child Behaviour and helping parents with parenting.  I have published two books on the subject.  I also specialise in attachment relationships.  I adopt a Rogerian model of counselling combined with mindulfness and compassion related models of psychotherapy.  I am qualified in using EMDR for trauma related difficulties and CBT if clients prefer this model.  I also offer Supervision.
