Chances are that if you are reading this you are experiencing a difficult time right now. Maybe you feel unable to speak about how you feel to the people in your life. I offer my skills and full presence to help people to overcome difficulties and feel happier in their own skin offering sessions that are empowering and supportive.
I have been in private practice for 11 years and am continually updating my skills and knowledge in the areas of what is is to be human and how to facilitate myself and others to live with agency and kindness in these times of change and uncertainty. I can work with you to explore whatever it is that keeps you from feeling fully engaged in your life with kindness and curiosity in a safe and structured way.
In a nutshell, my work is guided by my passion for Processwork, reconnecting people with Nature and a deep concern for our human challenges and sorrows. Essentially, Processwork is about uncovering the creativity and meaning in the things that disturb us. I believe you have everything you need to meet your challenges and my role is to help you track your awareness of marginalised or unseen patterns, feelings, thoughts and experiences so you can fully engage with your situation.
I also offer ecotherapy sessions in the form of walk and talk and facilitated sessions in woods or on the moor.
I work with people of all genders, sexual orientations, relationship styles, religious backgrounds, ethnic backgrounds and ages. I strive to hold an awareness of my white middle class privilege in order to uphold an anti-oppressive practice that is pro-actively open to diversity.
My spiritual life is very important to me and I am deeply nourished by earth centred spiritual teachings and practices, my tantric meditation practice and walking and resting in nature. I find joy in moving, dance and yoga which helps to to keep me in relationship with myself and others.
We can meet on Zoom or by telephone and for face to face work, my therapy room is near the station in central Totnes close to woods and the river.
I practice in accordance with the ethical frameworks as defined by BACP.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
