We believe that all human beings have the capacity to reach their full potential regardless of upbringing, the culture of origin, gender, age and any other aspect of diversity.

We have many years experience working with people with a wide range of mental health problems and have learned how each individual is unique and how different people may benefit from different approaches to tackling their difficulties.

My professional development as a therapist, trainer and supervisor have been informed by these values and this is reflected in my choices for my own training, supervision, and development.

I have training in various modalities of therapeutic work including person-centred counselling, core process psychotherapy, CBT, family and systemic practice, emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT), pre- and perinatal psychology and professional supervisor with CSTD.

During my career, I have gained experience working with people with eating disorders, people with experiences of severe abuse in childhood, people with terminal illness and with students as a counsellor at the University of Plymouth. I work with individuals, couples and families, I offer both long-term therapy and shorter term therapy (for EAP programmes, for instance).

As a trainer, I have written and conducted counselling courses at diploma level and run courses in Mindfulness and Meditation. I am a qualified mindfulness teacher and part of the UK Teachers network for mindfulness-based teacher training organisations – click here

My early career was spent working as a manager for a large utility company, where I gained valuable business experience.

We are currently affiliated with Aviva, BUPA, AXA PPP, Retail Trust and PPC Worldwide.

Both practices have been tastefully decorated, offer a sense of stillness, plenty of natural light and a warm welcome to both therapists and clients.

Further information


  • Thank you for helping to safe our marriage. I'm not sure we would have made it out of the dark tunnel with your help. Mr and Mrs B.

  • Your knowledge and skill have led me to some significant insights about my experience and emotional life. I know that your commitment to an ethical process will always benefit your clients first and foremost.
  • I've learned how to experience and handle my emotions. I now feel better equipped to cope with the inevitable difficulties, losses and changes of life and death.
