About me

I provide an independent counselling and psychotherapy service for adults, children and young people. I also do relationship counselling for couples.

I offer face to face psychotherapy sessions as well as telephone and online therapy sessions.

I have twenty years experience working with children and adolescents including ten years working for the NHS. with Exeter CAMHS. Other previous experience includes working as a therapist in education counselling services and voluntary organisations, such as Force Cancer Care,  providing therapy for adults, young people and children.

I also work as a relational therapist with couples experiencing difficulties in their relationships.

I can offer extensive experience in working with a wide variety of emotional difficulties, including

  • depression, low self esteem, anxiety, relationship difficulties and identity issues;
  • problems due to difficult past experiences such as trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties;
  • loss and bereavement;
  • self harm;
  • a more general sense of dissatisfaction or confusion;
  • help with promoting personal development - sessions provide a deep exploration of past and current experiences and emotions in order to develop greater insight and self knowledge.

I offer :

  • Psychotherapy sessions for children, adolescents and adults on a once weekly basis or more frequent if needed. This work tends to be open ended although I do also offer time limited work..
  • Relationship therapy for couples - usually on a once weekly basis.
  • Online and telephone support and counselling
  • assessments
  • consultations
