About me

  • Hi I'm Philippa and I have a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in therapeutic counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

If you are finding yourself struggling and feeling a need to talk then personal therapy can be extremely helpful in allowing you space to explore thoughts and feelings and begin to unravel a few knots in your life.

In seeking therapy it's completely ok to feel nervous and daunted by the process. I'm here to provide a safe, comfortable, non-judgemental and confidential space with a warm, empathic and down to earth approach working towards building a relationship of trust between us.

Exploration through therapy can lead to a greater awareness and clearer understanding of who and how we are and can shed light on the levels of influence around us.

You are in control of what we talk about and will never be pushed into areas that may feel unsafe for you.

I work with adults of all ages and have covered a range of issues including clients experiencing depression and anxiety, physical health issues, bereavement, relationship breakdown, family problems, abuse, self-esteem issues, loneliness and isolation or just a feeling that life has become a little tough. I use an integrative style of therapy which draws upon aspects of various theoretical approaches.

I would be happy to arrange an initial session to provide an opportunity to see how you feel about us working together with no obligation to continue if it just doesn't feel right for your needs. I offer hourly sessions and if you are happy to continue, we can make a mutual agreement as to how long we can work together for. I'm able to offer flexibility on days and times and we can discuss this in finding what best suits your requirements.

My work space in Barnstaple is comfortable, private and has disability access.
