About me

Counselling for Women.

I feel very strongly about supporting women through the challenges life can bring, be it bereavement, separation, relationships, crisis, transition or menopausal issues.

These challenges can bring anxiety, depression, grief, isolation and other deeply uncomfortable feelings. I create a supportive, confidential environment fostering an inquiry into a deeper understanding of oneself and ones experiences, offering the potential to make sense of the uncomfortable feelings as well as unravelling old patterns that may no longer serve.

I work with women of all ages and have worked closely with a lot of teenage girls who find themselves struggling with the pressures of growing up, many suffering from anxiety and depression and all that brings for them. I have also had the privilege of working closely with The Green Funeral Company supporting many through the process of immense grief.  I have been deeply inspired whilst working with women through the menopause, a time in a womans life that can often cause ripples and sometimes waves in all areas of life. This amount of change can benefit immensely from emotion support and a deeper inquiry into self awareness.

I feel that women need other womens support and understanding in times of distress and transition.

My training is in Integrative Counselling which puts the client in the centre pulling on a wealth of therapeutic knowledge, practices and skills. I work creatively, by this I mean I stay open the individuals way of expressing themselves whilst meeting their unique therapeutic and emotional needs.

My enquiry into supporting women is constantly enriched by having a daughter myself. As well as the counselling training I have journeyed deeply with, and supported, groups of women exploring feminine archetypes and their distortions.

I have a private practice in Totnes.
