What to Expect

My approach is down to earth and compassionate and my aim is to help you to recognise and use your inner strengths.  

I will work alongside you to increase your self awareness, helping you to gain clarity, understanding and a way forward. 

I work holistically and am an integrative counsellor meaning I tailor the sessions to suit you, using techniques from different therapies.

The person centred approach is at the heart of my work and I pride myself on building up a strong therapeutic alliance with those I work with.  I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focussed Therapy, Gestalt, Transpersonal and Mindfulness into my practice.

At the beginning of our work together, I will explore what you would like to gain from counselling and how you would like to work. I will then work with you using different therapeutic techniques in a way that will support, empower and gently challenge you to gain awareness and move forward. You set the pace of the therapy and I work in a trauma informed way meaning I will not ask you to explore anything you don't feel comfortable with.

In addition to exploring your difficulties with me, I can offer psycho-education and strategies where appropriate to help you understand, challenge and work with what you are experiencing.  I can also offer signposting to national services regarding many issues including mental health support, wellbeing, autism and neurodivergence.

Counselling can take place face to face from a custom built counselling cabin in Plymouth, Devon.

Alternatively, you can access counselling with me from anywhere in the UK via secure video link or telephone.

I have additional training in working online and over the phone.

I work with Adults 18+ and offer both short and long term sessions.

Counselling sessions are an hour long and I charge £50 per session payable by BACS before the session.

I do have some concessionary slots available for students and unwaged - please ask for details
