About me and my therapy practice

Searching for a counsellor at a time when you may already be struggling to cope can seem so difficult. However, you've made it here and you are not alone anymore.


I've worked successfully with many people over a number of years and can offer you genuine warmth as a person, and compassion for your problems, whatever they might be.

The initial consultation is free of charge, which will give us time to go through what is troubling you, answer your questions, and book up your first session. It's very relaxed and informal.

My private practice rooms cover Torbay, Teignbridge, Exeter and Plymouth. My experience includes NHS Primary Care, University Counselling, Employee Assistance and Corporate Support Programmes.

As a Practitioner, I offer a blended, flexible approach incorporating Counselling, Psychotherapy, CBT and Cognitive Coaching. Together we can discover what works best for you, and build a relationship where we can explore your difficulties together and agree a treatment plan. We might decide to try a number of approaches to see what best suits you. This is called Integrative Therapy but simply means you will get the service that works for you and not something rigid or inflexible.

Book daytime or evening appointments - in Person, via Skype/Facetime or on the phone. House visits are sometimes available.

You've made the difficult first step and now, working together, we can focus on discovery and recovery.
