I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
Psychotherapy and counselling is often called the 'talking cure'. People often value such help during a time of transition and change, crisis or loss when it is difficult to know 'what to do'?
I believe it is always possible to improve the way in which people tackle their problems and to use times of difficulty to make changes for the better.
I am currently offering sessions via Zoom, WhatsApp, Teams, FaceTime or in-person in Kingsbridge TQ7 and Totnes TQ9.
A therapy session offers you a safe and confidential space to work through issues in a non judgemental and respectful environment. Existential psychotherapy and counselling will clarify your understanding of yourself and your life circumstances. It may help you through a specific life crisis and in becoming better at handling difficult relationships.
Together we shall explore what matters most deeply to you in life and tackle what is most problematic. CBT strategies and techniques can help to reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety, panic and depression.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with:
Anxiety and stress
Lack of confidence
Loss and bereavement
Isolation and loneliness
Issues around parenting
Work related issues
Mid life crisis
Post natal depression
I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis, or for an agreed time period. I operate a self select sliding scale of fees to ensure therapy is affordable.
