About me and my therapy practice

Im an Integrative Counsellor meaning that with you at the heart of my practise  we can work together in different modalities to find what works for you. This can change over the course of our work together as your needs change.

For example with anxiety we may initially work cognitively, finding tools that help you manage your anxiety, then move on to find  and work with the underlying roots . This can be creative , Pyschodynamic, gestalt  or working in nature, but always you will be the person at the centre of my practise being heard. 

At the moment I mainly offer Zoom counselling but also as restrictions ease offer face to face in a natural setting or walk and talk . I will do home visits to the elderly or those unable to leave their homes, usually on referral from a GP or other professional.

Practice description

How often have you had something bothering or upsetting you, or just that general feeling of not feeling right? You've gone to tell someone, a friend or family and suddenly they are trying to ‘sort it’ when all you want is to be heard, to be allowed to voice these feelings, hopes, fears, uncertainties without someone judging you or saying I know how you feel.

At Caercaveral Counselling I’d like to offer you a space where you can be safely heard, without judgement, where you can just ‘Be’ and we can explore what is happening for you.

As a BACP Registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, you, the client, are at the heart of my practice. You are it’s heart.

I work with Anxiety, Trauma, Loss, Bereavement, Chronic health conditions such as ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and Depression. I have experience of working with clients with Asperger's. I also have experience of working with historic sexual and physical abuse and work in a way that is as safe as possible for you.

In normal times I offer 50 minute face to face appointments in rooms in Plymouth once a month or weekly in North Wales, and will see clients in their own homes on GP referral. I also offer walk and talk therapy taking advantage to be out in nature.

Due to Covid restrictions at the moment I am offering 30 to40 minute Internet sessions (I find it feels very fatiguing for more than this amount of time and I want our time together to be effective for you.) The advantage of Internet Counselling is that I can offer this nationwide if you have good Internet access and we can be more flexible. I also offer 50 minute face to face sessions in a beautiful park in Plymouth where we can be in a safe outdoor environment .

Please feel free to message me and we can set up a free 15 minute appointment to see if we are a good fit.


My first session

The first session we will go over our contract together then focus on you and what you are hoping for from counselling.

Its very much about us seeing if we can work together and build a trusting relationship , so you can feel safe exploring your issues that have brought you to counselling.

We will talk about the different ways I work and you may have a preference. But always you will be at the centre of my practise. We talk about laughter, tears  even swearing , all may come into the room as we work together. Violence and drug taking will not be tolerated though and our sessions will be terminated.

We set up a safe place visualisation , a place, person, object, pet ; that when you think about it , it makes you feel good. You will be asked to describe it in detail. This will a place I will bring you back to and ask you to tell me about if your counselling is bringing back too many traumatic memories too quickly. This is especially helpful with trauma.
