Are you looking for a safe space to talk through problems? Are you looking for some support towards positive change?

Sometimes we can’t talk openly with people in our lives – maybe they are either unable to listen fully or appreciate what we are saying, or they are too closely involved that it can be awkward to speak honestly with them. This is where counselling can be really helpful, as it can provide you with a space to explore what is going on for you and to offer a different perspective.

My clients and colleagues often describe me as warm and extremely gentle as a person and in my approach to my counselling work. I enjoy working together with my clients, and I find the job itself extremely rewarding.

I am a professional Therapeutic Counsellor, BACP Accredited (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) based in Plymouth, Devon, UK. As a member of this organisation, I have an Ethical Code of Conduct to which I work by; this guidance helps to keep our work safe for both you as a client and myself as a therapist. Accredited BACP status as a counsellor means that my practice meets the BACP’s higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner.

I can support you to explore and process what life brings your way at your pace. Together, we can unpick what you want to see happen for you and to give it some context, so that you will be able to notice any changes you are making.

My areas of experience include (but are not limited to) sexual assault and abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, stress and anger management, relationships, confidence and self-esteem issues and loss/bereavement. My approach is Mindfulness-based Person-Centred Therapy.

I am able to offer daytime and early evening sessions on weekdays and Saturday appointments, and I’m based in the city centre of Plymouth.

Please contact me to ask questions, discuss or book an initial meeting.

UPDATE REGARDING VIRUS & SESSIONS

I’m now offering remote/online sessions via video calls and instant messaging chat via Zoom (www.zoom.us) and telephone calls.

Recent scientific evidence suggests that risk of transmission of Covid-19 virus increases when talking/breathing in enclosed space (even when 2 metres apart) for 15 minutes or longer.

I’m looking into options for a venue which will be large enough to accommodate social distancing and a ventilation pathway for the near future when it becomes safer to meet for an hour in enclosed space.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but I don’t wish anyone to come to harm.

Take good care of yourself and each other

Any other comments or feedback?

Sessions are always very relaxed and it is very easy to talk and share.
