Talking to someone about very personal things takes a lot of trust. I focus on a Person Centred therapeutic relationship, keeping you at the centre of your therapy and providing you with non-judgement, autonomy and respect. My approach is 'Integrative', this means that I am able to draw upon a multitude of therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Creativity Therapy, Relaxation or Mindfulness if you feel they may help you during your sessions.
I am a fully qualified and insured professional Counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide affordable private and confidential counselling based within the South Hams, Devon.
What is Counselling?
Sometimes life can feel hugely overwhelming, or upsetting and frustrating and we may not feel like we can cope.

Your therapist is not there to solve your problems for you and tell you what to do, but they are there to help you understand yourself better, and to help you make the changes you wish to make, for the better.
