About me

Hello, welcome to my listing.

I'm a Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Devon holding both in-person and online sessions.

I offer an open and understanding space which works towards achieving a renewed sense of purpose and personal acceptance. We are more than our problems, but the thought of change can seem an overwhelming process when faced on our own.

Clients can request short term help to address present difficulties, or a longer relationship to understand and process historic experiences.

Finding the right person to begin counselling with can seem daunting, but please drop me a line if you'd like an initial meet up, it's completely free and a good first step.

Thank you

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

Sessions are held in light and accessible spaces at both Tiverton and South Molton with access to facilities and additional space to sit before or after our session. 

The work draws on various techniques and theories, but is always focussed on an  unique individual approach. My aim is to provide clients with a trusted therapist who can support the changes and growth sought, but also to offer different perspectives and to sometimes challenge unhealthy beliefs or established patterns of behaviour.
