About me and my therapy practice
Whether you are feeling anxious, confused, angry, sad, ashamed, envious, lost or uncertain, my hope is that I may be able to support you and give you space to be exactly as you are.
I offer a warm, soulful, compassionate, practical & creative approach tailored to you. I aim to walk alongside you as we explore what concerns you and the dilemmas you face, supporting you to re-imagine who you are and how you deal with life’s difficulties.
Often the work begins with finding a safe way to feel the emotions that may be present, or may be difficult to access within. Fostering compassion for ourselves is at the heart of my approach.
All the evidence suggests that it is the quality of the counselling relationship that determines how successful counselling is, so we will regularly pay attention to what arises when we sit together, what it means, how it feels and how it may relate to other people in your history.
We may also pay attention to what is happening in the body, to myth, story, self-soothing techniques, archetypes, ritual and/or looking through the lens of depth and soul.
I am a qualified counsellor, offering private counselling sessions to adults and young people. I have a particular interest and experience in working with managing life’s transitions, whether from youth to adulthood, the quarter-life crisis, mid-life or into retirement and beyond; grief and loss; shame; trauma; low mood/depression; anxiety; navigating change; and feeling lost and lacking in purpose.
As well as offering private counselling, I currently offer counselling at Force, Exeter’s cancer charity. I have a background in training health and social care professionals and young people, particularly in the areas of sexual health, safeguarding, intimacy and sexuality.
In addition to being a qualified and experienced counsellor, I am currently training to be a psychotherapist.
