About me and my therapy practice
I hold and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and am a Registered and Accredited Member of the BACP with ten years experience of counselling. I previously worked as a Registered General Nurse for more than two decades.
I am particularly interested in supporting couples through relational issues and am, at present, working towards finishing the final part of an Advanced Specialist Diploma in Relationship Counselling (theory and study completed). As a counsellor, I bring together my life experiences, professional work and interest in mental health. I am fascinated by how we relate to one another and the impact that life's challenges can have on our resilience within our relationships, including with ourselves.
Taking the first step towards seeking support can be difficult in itself, it is therefore important to me that my clients feel relaxed in my company which helps towards developing a supportive and trusting, therapeutic relationship.
I am curious to hear about your inner world and believe that you have the capacity to be guided by your own wisdom. However, when life throws curve balls, resilience is often compromised. I can help you to make sense of this and with renewed insight, make sustainable changes you would like in your life, or work towards acceptance of your situation.
Outside of my private practice, I work as an Oncology Counsellor for Force, Exeters' local charity (since 2013) where I co-facilitate groups, as well as work with individuals and couples.
