Do you feel you would like to be heard, listened to, acknowledged and understood? Do you need help with difficult feelings or a way to lighten the burdens or problems you are carrying? I provide a full range of counselling and psychotherapy services in and around Torbay and the surrounding areas, including Exeter. I offer a friendly, relaxed and professional approach, and have worked with clients with varying issues for over 25 years. I also provide an online counselling service.

I am qualified as an integrative counsellor.  This means I am able to utilise various  methods of therapy and therefore can call upon the most appropriate and effective for each and every client who attends my counselling practice.  

I am experienced in helping people with the following:

Panic & Anxiety Attacks, Anxiety Problems, Depression,

Relationship Problems, Low Self-Esteem, Assertiveness

Alcoholism, Drug Problems, Bereavement, Addictions

Work Problems, Jealousy, OCD, Phobias, Stress Management, Abuse, Sexual Abuse,Weight Issues, Eating Disorders, Loneliness, Anger Problems, Fear of Flying, Insomnia, PTSD, ADHD
and Many Other Problems.

In therapy together, we’ll create a relationship to help you discover and change patterns of feeling, thinking, and relating that may be causing you to feel stuck, confused, or overwhelmed. In a safe and trusting environment, our conversations will unfold in the space and time you need to get to know yourself better and become free to follow your life goals and desires. I will support you as fully as possible in your search to find how best to move forward, in the areas of your life you choose to explore.

It would be a privilege to meet with you for a consultation to explore whether counselling with me feels right for you. I welcome your enquiry by phone or email. Counselling can make a significant positive change to your life.
