About Me

I am an experienced, accredited counsellor and EMDR Trauma specialist and have been practising in Barnstaple and Ilfracombe, North Devon for 10 years. I am committed to providing professional counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment, guided by my professional membership of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (Accredited). I am also a member of EMDR Europe and British Association of Behavioural Cognitive Psychotherapists (Accredited).

"When we accept our stuckness
our lives begin to shift."

I have over 20 years experience in educational environments, supporting people with their every day work/relationship issues and finding appropriate solutions. I have been working with adults, children and young people over the past 10 years on relationship issues, depression, self-harming and self-esteem, abuse, and a variety of other issues.

I am also qualified as a counselling supervisor.

I work on an open-ended basis or agreed time period, with the aim of enabling clients to live their lives more positively and fully.
