Whether you are feeling anxious, angry, sad, ashamed, envious, lost or uncertain, my hope is that I may be able to support you and give you space to be exactly as you are.
I offer a warm, soulful, compassionate, practical & creative approach tailored to you. I aim to walk alongside you as we explore what concerns you and the dilemmas you face, supporting you to re-imagine who you are and how you deal with life’s difficulties.
Often the work begins with finding a safe way to feel the emotions that may be present, or may be difficult to access within. We may work with paying attention to what is happening in the body and in the relationship between us, or may draw on myth, nature and the elements, story, mindfulness, self-soothing techniques, a solution focus, archetypes, ritual and/or looking through the lens of depth and soul.
I am a qualified counsellor, offering private counselling sessions to adults and young people. I have a particular interest and experience in working with grief and loss; shame; trauma; low mood/depression; anxiety; navigating change; feeling lost and lacking in purpose; and life’s transitions, whether from youth to adulthood, the quarter-life crisis, mid-life or into retirement and beyond.
As well as offering private counselling, I currently work at Force, Exeter’s cancer charity, offering counselling and support to adults and young people diagnosed with cancer, and their relatives. I have a background in training health and social care professionals and young people, particularly in the areas of sexual health, safeguarding, intimacy and sexuality. In addition to being a qualified and experienced counsellor, I am currently training to be a psychotherapist.
I see counselling and psychotherapy as an opportunity to help us to come home to ourselves, so we feel at home in our own skin, with all our worries, difficulties, joys and gifts, with all of our darkness and light – with the uniqueness of who we are.

Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in Integrative Transpersonal Counselling, accredited by the BACP, from Re-Vision in London. I have been offering counselling since 2014, honoured by the privilege of seeing clients who are seeking support with managing difficult situations and major life transitions such as bereavement, anxiety, depression, trauma, career changes and illness.
In the last two years, I have facilitated and co-facilitated workshops on 'Relationships, body image and intimacy,' 'Understanding trauma,' and 'Working with patients around sexuality and intimacy' for a range of client groups including nurses, charities and counsellors.
My most recent professional development has been at a conference on politics, poetry and psychotherapy. I have also recently undertaken training in Mental Health First Aid and Solution Focused Therapy. As of September 2018, I am engaged in advanced training in psychotherapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I don't like using the term 'disorder' unless you find it helpful. I believe that there is a lot more to understanding someone than a label that they are given, although being given a label can sometimes be experienced as a relief.
