About me and my therapy practice
I offer a uniquely tailored counselling service for individuals or couples, face-to-face or online. My online work is conducted via an app called VSee. I can also work with you via email, text chat or telephone. I offer face-to-face meetings in Devon, UK. Full details can be found on my website www.counselmeonline.co.uk. A free online trial session is available.
I have been a counsellor since 1999 and have worked with adults and young people from many different backgrounds and walks of life. My approach to counselling is based on humanistic and existential principles. This means that I start from a position of valuing each person as a unique human being, prioritising their needs and seeking to work with them within the terms of the BACP Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions. I follow the ‘existential’ principle that each person can find meaning from their experience of life and can make conscious and responsible choices to change and improve their lives. I modify how I work with each person to suit their needs, beliefs and preferences, choosing techniques drawn from a range of methods.
