Hello, thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
I am an integrative counsellor & psychotherapist working in private practice here in North Devon.
I qualified in 2011 and initially focused on working primarily with young people, taking up role as in-house counsellor in two local secondary schools.
I now work with a varied range of clients- young people, adults & couples and I am also a qualified supervisor.
I set up my private practice in 2015 and work from a very welcoming, private and cosy summer house in my garden.
I believe that, ultimately it is the strength of the therapeutic relationship that matters most and, as such, I invite you to come along and meet with me for a free initial consultation to see if you feel I am the right counsellor for you.
