About me

I am an experienced Gestalt counsellor working in Exeter and Axminster.  I have worked with depression, anxiety and relationship issues.  I also work with young people in care.  In all my work I hope to bring a new perspective and awareness of potential to bring about change and support you with the feelings that are present!  To hopefully live a life you want to have!

I am offering a safe, confidential space for you to come and work with me.

I am open to work with any topic big or small, for long or short term counselling.

I offer a gentle non-prejudiced approach for you to share what is on your mind and explore your options for making the changes you want to make.

I have an interest in taking the whole of you into account - mind and body - as they are connected and impact on your wellbeing.

I work in Exeter and Axminster offering a first session to see how we get on, I will ask you some questions and you will also be able to ask me anything, then you can decide if you want to work with me. We can discuss what you are looking for and make a plan for timescale.

If you choose to continue we would meet once per week on the same day each week.

I have openings on Thursdays and Fridays day time and evenings and my fee is £30 per hour.
