About me and my therapy practice
When you are experiencing relationship or family issues, feeling sad, depressed or anxious talking to a counsellor can really help. I can work with you on these issues by really listening to you without any judgement and creating a safe and trusting relationship that supports your self-exploration, self-awareness and personal development.
Experienced at counselling adults of all ages and from all walks of life and have particular experience at working with parents, carers and young adults. I also have specialist experience at working with highly sensitive people (HSP) and parents of highly sensitive children (HSC) and I am a published author of a collection of books to help parents and carers to understand and support highly sensitive children.
I work in a person-centred way which means I will listen closely and be sensitive to your needs focusing on the relationship between us. I will be warm and open providing empathy, trust and presence. With these relationship qualities it is always my intention to hold a safe space for you to explore your inner experience without judgement and create the potential for you to feel more at ease.
Deciding to see a counsellor can be a difficult process. You might be feeling uneasy, vulnerable, confused or overwhelmed I'm easy to talk to and have a peaceful room to see you in, where we can talk confidentially.
Counselling sessions can be face to face, at my therapy room near Totnes, South Devon, or by telephone or online video call using FaceTime or Zoom.
I offer an introductory session costing £30 and lasting for one-hour. This can help you to form an opinion of whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you and gives you an opportunity to see my room and its location. It also allows me to understand your needs and issues more thoroughly and to see if my approach is appropriate for you. If you are then happy to continue, we can arrange to meet on a more regular basis ideally weekly each session lasting for one-hour and costing £50.
