About me and my therapy practice
Over the last ten years I have established a successful Private Practice in Plymouth, working with people who are seeking help with a broad range of issues. I am an Integrative Therapist, Accredited and Registered with the BACP, offering short term (6-12 weeks), long term (6-12 months) or open-ended therapy (the end date is negotiated during the course of the work).
I recognise that it takes courage to seek therapy and I offer a warm welcome to help people feel comfortable and at ease.
My core training is as an Integrative Counsellor, employing a humanistic and person centred approach.
MY BACKGROUND - I was employed in the NHS for twenty five years, initially as a Mental Health Nurse and latterly as a therapist. I have worked in a variety of contexts, including Mental Health Services, Day Therapy Centres, GP Practices, a Youth Agency, and a Psychotherapy Department. Throughout this time I engaged with people individually and in group contexts, paying attention to their life stories and experiences, rather than diagnosis.
I have over thirty years experience of working with people regarding their psychological health and bring a range of experiences and skills into my current practice.
