About me

I am an experienced Gestalt counsellor working in Exeter and Sidmouth.  I work with depression, anxiety, addiction and relationship issues.  I have also worked extensively with young people in the care system and their families.  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!

In Exeter the counselling rooms are just off the high street in a quiet location.  In Sidmouth also is quiet safe space.

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

I offer a gentle non-prejudiced approach, where you are the expert on yourself and I will help you to gain fresh perspective and awareness about your situation.

My interest is to help you become more aware of who you are and how I can best help you.

I work in Exeter and Sidmouth 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.  I think it is really important that you find the right counsellor for you! 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 in Exeter  day time and evenings and Sidmouth Monday and Wednesday and my fee is £30 per hour.
