About me and my therapy practice

Perhaps you have now come to a point where you have reached a crossroads or are seeking a new direction.  You may be experiencing relationship problems, a change in circumstances that are difficult to manage emotionally or you want to learn more about your sense of self or have greater self awareness.

Taking the first step can sometimes feel quite daunting as life can be a challenge at times, feel a bit overwhelming or confusing. Whatever has brought you to counselling I would like to welcome you.

I will provide a confidential warm & compassionate therapeutic space to allow you the opportunity to explore the issues that are troubling you. Together we can increase your self awareness and work towards effecting positive changes and contentment in your life.

I have regularly worked with issues around health, relationships and relationship problems, emotional difficulties, stress and anxiety, depression, behavioural problems, trauma and childhood trauma, loss and bereavement, self esteem and workplace stress. I also work with individuals who are childless not by choice or  child free by choice as this an area of specialty for me.

The therapeutic relationship is so important to the success of therapy and therefore I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to discuss what you are looking for and to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease to work with me.

Practice description

Therapy is a collaborative process and I am able to draw upon many different approaches as a qualified integrative counsellor to tailor it to your needs.

I offer space for us to work together, to explore your thoughts without judgement and provide you with a greater understanding of yourself giving clarity to move forward.

I have gained a lot of experience working with Clarity, a local mental health charity in North Devon and I have previously worked for the NHS.

I have a range of experience through private practice and my voluntary work as a counsellor at Clarity.

I work with adults of 18 years and above and can work in groups and 1:1 and offer short and long term therapy to suit your needs.
