About me

I am a qualified psychotherapist and offer therapy in my private practice in Exmouth.  I have over 10 years’ experience supporting people with a range of issues and have worked in the NHS, private and voluntary organisations providing counselling support.

I am a member of ACTO (Association for Counselling and Therapy Online) and offer therapy in person, via video or on the telephone.

Our sessions would be 60 minutes long and would allow you the space and time to explore what is troubling you in a calm and supportive environment.

I would meet with you initially for an assessment so we can explore what support you may need. This initial assessment is also an opportunity for you to see what having therapy with me would be like and for me to ensure than I can offer the support you need.

I welcome enquiries and am happy to answer any questions or queries you might have about starting therapy with me, before taking the step to arrange an initial meeting.

Whatever it is that has brought you here to seek therapy, I would be happy to hear from you.

I have over 20 years experience working in healthcare and healthcare education before training as a psychotherapist. I have practised as a counsellor in NHS, private and voluntary organisations for over 10 years:
