About me and my therapy practice

I believe that life is a gift; yet, at times, it can feel quite the opposite. Sometimes, we can feel overwhelmed by our difficulties.

​Often, a trained, non-judgmental and objective ear can help order one's thoughts, challenge ingrained patterns of behaviour, and manage emotions. I am patient, supportive, and non-judgemental in my work, taking a genuine and compassionate interest in my clients. I aim to provide a warm and caring environment, to build trust, so that you can feel safe to explore issues at your own pace.

​I am a trained counsellor with an integrative-relational approach; I tailor my skills to meet the needs of individuals and have wide experience of a broad range of clients.

Please feel very welcome to come and share your story with me in a safe, confidential, and calm environment here in beautiful Topsham.

Practice description

My office is in the beautiful estuary town of Topsham- ideal for relaxing and walking in after your session. 

I also offer online counselling especially at this very difficult time. 

My first session

I will give you a free telephone assessment when I can hear a little of your story and collect some necessary details. 

After that, if you’re happy to go ahead, we can start to work together - the first session will involve completing a contract and looking at how I handle your data for GDPR before then moving on to counselling.
