Counselling and supervision in Kingsteignton, near Newton Abbot, Devon
I have been practicing as a counsellor since 2001, after I qualified with a Diploma in Counselling in Exeter. I am an accreditted member of the BACP. My training is Person Centred, which means I use a non-directive approach to therapy. I have recently enhanced my training with an integrative diploma in counselling children and adults ( 2006 ) to broaden my theoretical base. This allows me to bring more creative activities with an analytical perspective to my work with both adults and children. I have recently undergone further training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ), 2008 - 30 hour course, and now regularly incorporate CBT into my work.
The Devon practice is within easy reach of Newton Abbot, Torquay and Kingsteignton.
I am experienced working with issues such as depression, anger, anxiety, loss, sexuality, anger, suicidal thoughts, self-harm and eating disorders.
While I work with a general practice, I also specialise in working with young people ( 5 - 18 year olds). I have specific training in this area and am currently employed by the Young Devon ( formerly known as Devon Youth Association ) working on site at Exmouth Community College as a student counsellor, and at Clyst Vale Community College as a student counsellor employed by Devon County Council.
I have lectured at South Devon College, delivering Counselling skills training, and do other training on request, such as working with anger.
£40 per session ( 50 minutes ).

Owing to a plague of unsolicited calls, mainly from telesales, I have installed a system that will endeavour to screen out cold callers etc. If you are a genuine client or wish to find out more about my service, please follow the automated instructions given when you call and you will be put through to me or asked to leave a message if I am not available to answer. Whether I am available to take your call or not you will be asked to leave a name before you are put through. Your first name will be sufficient to allow you to pass as a genuine caller. The system will refuse to accept calls from lines using witheld numbers ( such as 'X-directory' ).
