About me

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor, and a  registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists).

I am committed to delivering a warm and professional way of working, to suit your preferred way of working and a specific learning style.

I have specific interest and experience in the Person-Centred, Gestalt, and Transactional Analysis theories, and Sand Tray Therapy.

The services I offer

  • Face-to-Face Counselling in my private practice in Paignton. I provide a  warm, safe, secure and confidential environment.
  • Walk and Talk Counselling, this is counselling in motion, I find it works well if you maybe feeling trapped, stuck or confined in your life. You may feel by being physically active can help ease your tensions,  give way to new ideas, and to help you move forwards.

I like to work with warmth, openness, empathy.  I believe counselling is a collaborative process where we work together, side by side, working through anything you wish too explore at your own time and pace.

I would be privileged to travel with you on your journey of self-discovery, to support and stand by you every step of the way.

As a BACP member I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, this includes boundaries around confidentiality and safety, following their professional conduct procedure.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
