About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my profile.

I'm an experienced Counsellor having spent over 10 years in private practice in Edinburgh but now living in Exeter , where I see my  clients in a comfy private therapy room off Southernhay East .  Online appointments are also available.

My effective counselling approach can help with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, confidence and self esteem, bereavement, sadness and loss. 

 I offer a safe, confidential, caring space for us to work together, a place for you to be listened to without judgement, explore ways to bring about positive change and a bring about a better balance to your life. 

As well as the issues listed I’ve gained a lot of experience of working with and supporting HE students at all stages of their studies. I also have a special interest in Womens'  health and wellbeing , diversity and later life challenges. 

Choosing the right counsellor can seem a bit daunting, so I offer the option of a 30-minute informal consultation to help you decide if we’re a good fit. 

Some fee concessions are available e.g. students, low waged and seniors. Please enquire.

About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my profile

Having been  in private practice in Edinburgh for over 10 years I'm now based in Exeter where I'm working face to face and online with counselling and supervision clients.

I work with both qualified and student counsellors and am on Ironmill College list for counselling and supervision.

My initial training was person centred but I'm experienced at and interested in working with supervisees from other modalities and would describe my practice as integrative. 

I've got a professional background in mentoring and coaching and really enjoy supporting student counsellors during their training and beyond. in my previous practice in Edinburgh I worked with students from Caledonian and Edinburgh Universities  and those studying with private providers. 

I'm an experienced counsellor with a Post Grad Diploma in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde, a Certificate in Stress Management (OCR) and Certificate in Creative Supervision (UKCP)

I've been in private practice since 2008 and supervising counsellors since 2014

I offer a free initial 30-minute meeting, after which the fee for qualified counsellors is £55 per 1-hour session. I offer a discounted fee of £40 for student counsellors and for those in the first year of setting up in private practice.
