About me

Thank you for reading my profile. I am an experienced counsellor, with over 20 years experience, offering a professional service in Plymouth and Ivybridge.

I recognise that deciding to engage in counselling can be a very important, and sometimes difficult step. And then, choosing a counsellor can be quite a task! You may need to meet someone to know if they are the right counsellor for you. If it helps, client feedback suggests people find me approachable and appreciate my warm manner (see website for testimonials). In addition to being a practitioner, I have managed counselling services in the region, including Plymouth University.

Further information is available on my website. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. Many thanks.
