About me

I am a fully qualified, insured therapeutic counsellor and registered member of the 'British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists' (MBACP) and registered member of the National Counsellling Society (MNCS (Accred). These memberships ensure that I work within best practice guidelines and provide peace of mind, with acknowledgement through vetting by the professional standards authority.

My private practice takes place in Exminster and occasionally inner city Exeter, where I offer a safe and comforting space to talk and explore. I work with honesty, acceptance, compassion and non-judgement.

The practice rooms I work from are quiet and reassuring in their size and décor, which I hope will put you at ease. Easilly accessible, Exminster is 5 minutes from the M5, 20 minutes from the city centre and on a regular bus route.

Taking time for yourself and entering into counselling takes a lot of courage and the initial steps may feel uncomfortable, but I am here to help you through that time and support you. With the focus of our work being on your unique and individual experience of your circumstances; how you're feeling, thinking and responding. And how we can work together to help you achieve your best possible self and/or clarity.

I am an Integrative Counsellor using elements of several theoretical models, such as, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Gestalt or Attachment Theory, as well as the Person-centred approach - the foundation of my approach  - to help you explore and gain a deeper understanding so you can move to a more positive place, to feel heard and empowered.

The focus of the majority of my work with clients is overcoming anxiety, building self-esteem/confidence and self acceptance. However, I work with a great  many other areas too.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling at Exeter College after successfully completing the Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills and Theory and Level 2 Introduction to Counselling.

Over the last 2 years I have had the opportunity to work with a wide and varied selection of personal and emotional life transitions and challenges, volunteering for an organisation offering affordable counselling to those on low incomes.
