About me

I am interested in you and your story, and aim to provide a safe and supportive time and space for you to express what is on your mind. I hope to help you by listening carefully and without judgement, so that together we may be able to understand what you are going through. Sometimes by offering a new perspective, I can help you to shift from feeling stuck, or unable to move forward. Sometimes the experience of being heard is useful in itself to alleviate confusion, anxiety or depression. I hope to help you understand and be yourself.

It could be that there are events from your past or fears for the future which need an airing, with someone who is willing to provide calm acceptance, whatever you may bring. As a counsellor, I hope to begin to understand you and develop further understanding together. This may be a quiet, reflective time or a more creative and active process. I will always check with you that we are working in a way that is comfortable and helpful to you.

For couples I can provide a place to talk honestly about the difficulties you are experiencing, and help you each feel heard and understood. My unbiased approach, which explores the patterns you find yourselves stuck with, can help you find a new way forward.

Walk and Talk. My interest in nature as a therapeutic force has helped me to develop another form of counselling which may appeal to those who love the great outdoors. Movement can help us feel more free to talk, whilst the impact of the natural world can encourage new perspectives. For some of us, the idea of sitting face-to-face and talking, is a block to seeking help. I am able to offer Walk and Talk counselling either around Brixham and Totnes, or on the Tarka Trail and Saunton Sands. An initial session would take place first, in the usual way. Prices and session length to be discussed individually.

Further information

By integrating learning from a variety of respected theoretical models, I hope to offer a rich experience which can be developed together for your individual needs. For me, integration is also important as an idea for recognising the whole person – sometimes parts of ourselves which have been hidden or suppressed are as important as the image we project. Bringing these elements together as pieces of the puzzle that makes each of us unique, can help us feel whole and able to be ourselves, both for our own wellbeing and in our relationship with others.
