Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my profile page, which I hope gives you a brief insight to my professional experience as a therapeutic counsellor.
I am very fortunate to have lived and worked in North Devon all my life, working in retail and then the healthcare sector. While we live in a beautiful location with a diversity of rural, village and community life, our day to day living can present its own unique challenges, be it in our social life, family and relationships, quality of life or work-related stresses.
We occasionally need time, space and professional guidance to achieve our sense of value. We may need to gain control of our lives when faced with a crisis or life changing event. Or we may simply need the opportunity to discover who we are and how we want our lives to be.
My aim is to create a discreet and safe environment to enable you to find a way forward, with a fresh perspective and strength of purpose.
My experience as a counsellor has included professional support for clients dealing with complex trauma, challenges associated with pre or post bereavement, parenting young children, low self esteem, anxiety, abuse and self-harm.
