About me and my therapy practice

Individuals • Couples • Children and Young People

I am a Integrative Counsellor and registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Counselling can bring clarity where there is confusion, resolve past issues, change behaviours and improve relationships. I will provide you a confidential, safe and supportive space for you to talk and work through the difficulties you may be facing. For some people having a safe space to speak and reflect about their issues it is enough to help them move forward, while others may benefit from the use of more creative interventions.

I am an Integrative Counsellor who believes in the uniqueness of each person and their unique needs. As an Integrative Counsellor I work with different counselling approaches depending on your individual needs. Every client is different and I believe that different clients will benefit from different counselling approaches depending on their difficulties.

I have experience of neurodiversity and mental health issues and work with clients who have both ASD and ADHD.

I know how difficult it can feel to reach out for help, just know that you're not alone. I am happy to support you and to hold sessions in whatever way you feel comfortable, I offer counselling sessions in person (Exeter) via video call or phone. If you would like more information on how we might work together please feel free to contact me via email or call.

Practice description

 As an integrative practitioner I can offer different approach’s depending in the individual needs of each client.

My work is based on a Humanistic approach, where I have the believe that every person has got in them the capacity of thrive and growing, by having the safe place and support to reflect and explore, able them to find their own sense of self. I often explore past experiences drawing on Attachment Theory at the same time as working on what is happening in the present moment.

Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that gives my clients the chance of exploring themselves and their relationships. Thought talking with me I aim to safely guide them to reflect on deep seated patterns in their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

I have also trained in CBT, where I can use techniques to help clients reframing their thinking if this it is the cause of the client issues.

I also can use creative therapy’s that enables clients to safely explore and express underlying difficulties and traumas more creatively and symbolically. The combination of creativity with therapy it can be a very helpful way of expression with very positive outcomes.

The goal of my work is to move clients towards a place awareness, acceptance, and heal.
