About me

I provide a warm, empathic, non-judgmental space to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.

Issues I help people with include anxiety, depression, stress, childhood trauma, bereavement, suicidal thoughts, panic attacks and unwanted patterns of behaviour.

I am a professional Gestalt counsellor and CBT therapist with many years' experience working with adults and young people within schools and at my private practice in Buckfastleigh.

If you think I might be right for you, come along and have an initial consultation, after which you are under no obligation to continue. It is very important to find the right counsellor for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Level 4 Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and CBT
  • 2 years working within primary and secondary schools as school counsellor
  • 3 years private practice counselling adults, teenagers and children
  • 6 years working for Young Devon (agency for teenage counselling)
  • I am currently doing an art therapy course

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. 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.


I charge £40 per hour.

The first session is an hour and half but charged at half price £30.

Some concessionary appointments are available for those in financial need.

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.
