About me and my therapy practice
My aim is to offer a safe, caring, professional, non-judgemental and confidential working relationship based on trust, openness, joint participation, and free from counselling 'jargon'. My role is supportive and facilitative in helping you find and connect with your inner strengths and resources, become stronger and make changes so that you are able to cope better in your world.
Having been a matrimonial solicitor for some years, I am now a fully Accredited, Registered Member of the BACP. I have 19 post-qualification years of experience in different settings. I worked for the Exeter & District NHS Trust Counselling Service for 10 years and 3 years for the Margaret Jackson Centre Counselling Service in Exeter. I have worked with Victim Support staff for 3 years. I have provided counselling for Occupational Health staff and counselled students participating on counselling courses. I have worked on a student helpline. Currently, I have my own private practice in central Exeter which I have been running for 6 years.
I work one-to-one with adults of all ages covering a wide range of issues. I also work with couples. I like to work in a creative way individually tailored to each client. The work may vary from simply wanting to offload to lengthier, complex work. The work varies from short-, medium- to long-term.
