About me and my therapy practice

A very warm welcome to my profile; thank you for looking

I'm an experienced Counsellor having spent over 10 years in private practice . I see my clients in a private therapy room in the Southernhay Quarter of Exeter and I'm  also available online using  Skype or FaceTime. 

I offer therapy  to individual adults at all stages of their lives from 18 to seniors, there's no upper age limit.  

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

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

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

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

I'm a very experienced counsellor and supervisor in private practice in Exeter city centre. 

I work with both qualified and student counsellors and am an approved supervisor for Iron Mill  College, the Margaret Jackson Centre and Exeter College. 

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.

I currently have limited  space for additional supervisees ( June 2019)
