About me

Anxiety, depression, loss of confidence or grief, these are just some of the ways in which our experience of life can be adversely impacted.

Hello and welcome. I feel I have an intuitive sensitivity for my client’s emotional world which helps me to understand their thoughts and feelings, this in turn creates a strong connection between us that gives my client the confidence to share those important thoughts and feelings and together we can work to move forward.
If you choose me, I look forward to welcoming you to my counselling suite which is very calm and comfortable.

As well as working in private practice I find time to support clients at a counselling charity here in Devon.

Sometimes we can experience problems, emotional difficulties and may not know why or understand what is happening but we know things are not  quite right. Sometimes we do know what’s wrong but can't seem to move on and experience re-occurring destructive patterns. We can talk about what's going on for you, explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, questions and confusion.

We can work to help you identify root causes, experiences and to express feelings that may have been suppressed for a long time.

I work integratively which means I draw on different counselling approaches to help each client, in a way that works for them.

Member organisations


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.

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.
