I am an experienced integrative counsellor based in Teignmouth and Shaldon, Devon and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. My aim is to support my clients’ well-being and growth by nurturing their emotional awareness, resilience and confidence. I believe counselling is for everyone and whatever challenges and troubles my clients face I endeavour to create a supportive, gentle and effective place for them to face them.
In my practice I see clients of all ages dealing with many kinds of difficulties and it is my role to give each of them the most empathy, honesty and compassionate regard I can.
I work extensively with older people and provide a fully mobile counselling service for those clients who cannot come to me, visiting them in residential care homes, supported living and private residences. My mobile service covers areas including Teignbridge, Torbay, Exeter and Exmouth.
Online counselling and telephone consultations are offered for some or all of your sessions if it is difficult for you to make regular appointments in Teignmouth.
I also have a special interest in supporting people with dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties and have considerable experience of doing this in school and university settings.
