About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and currently see clients in Bridport and Honiton.
As well as working privately, I am a volunteer counsellor for Counselling for Carers, a part of the charity Action East Devon.
In the past I trained with the Samaritans and worked for them as a volunteer.
I have also worked in therapeutic communities and have trained in mental health, group work and art therapy. I have particular interests in women's issues, relationships, stress management and adoption.
Being an integrative counsellor means that I work with more than one theoretical model and I can be flexible, drawing on the ideas and techniques that will be most helpful for each individual.
I have a humanistic perspective which derives from my core personal beliefs and my deep concern for the well-being of self and others.
I listen carefully to my clients and think deeply about their needs. Through a process of reflection and enquiry we work together to develop insight and understanding, based on trust, honesty and acceptance.
This can help someone to work through their difficulties, make major decisions or life choices, or lead to a greater sense of personal ease and to feeling more in control of life.
Counselling takes place in a safe, private space and always in accordance with the guidance on good practice as laid out in the BACP Ethical Framework.
