About me

**UPDATE: ONLINE COUNSELLING NOW AVAILABLE**

Counselling is my passion and my purpose. It was after having therapy myself years ago, that I decided to train to help others. I believe that negative experiences can be harnessed and used to support those who are experiencing tough times. We all have them, and that's ok. It is making sure that we work through them that is so crucial to not only our present, but our future.

I work regularly with generalised anxiety disorder, panic, family issues, abuse, depression, sadness, trauma, relationship problems, anger and low self-esteem to name but a few.

I also work in the prison system with offenders and feel passionately about rehabilitation and reintegration. Nobody should be prevented from getting help. Your history does not need to dictate the rest of your life.

Each session with me is based around your own unique needs. For me, the aim is for you to feel entirely understood, supported and heard, no matter what the issue. It is then that we can explore each situation together and in a way which positively benefits your life and your sense of being.

​If you're looking for counselling in Torquay, Torbay and the surrounding areas, then please feel free to contact me via email or telephone.

Wishing you good mental health.

Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

A very central location, with a lift in the building to accommodate wheelchairs.
