About me

I am a BACP senior accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with twenty years of experience, and a qualified supervisor, based near Totnes in South Devon.

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space within which to explore the issues that may be troubling you.

I see our work together very much as a collaboration, in which kindness plays a key part. I feel and explore your experience with you, so that you may feel truly met and able to relax into a sense of wholeness and safety. Traumas held within our bodies and psyches are pockets or ‘holds in time’, of unmet, unsupported, undigested life. My aim is to provide a space for these ‘short circuits’ to be re-connected, metabolised and integrated into the whole. Through gentle probing and sensitive questioning, through guiding you into a deeper experiencing of your body’s ‘felt sense’, through a sharing of insights arising between us, I aim to facilitate a deepening awareness of your own life.

I create a safe space for you to feel into your feelings, and as you meet them, you may discover a new sense of aliveness within you and your life. Feelings, once acknowledged, are self-liberating, and fuel us into greater wholeness. It is only when they are unrecognised, unmet and unloved that they trap us.

We will explore patterns of thought and belief and discover through enquiry and reflection how certain thinking processes and imprints, (conditioning), may be keeping you hostage. Old patterns can be cast aside as you become conscious of them, so that you may live from a freer, more natural state.

At times we may use meditative practices, sit in silence, and explore dreams and images. You may in our sessions also discover a stillness out of which all these experiences arise. And you may discover that this stillness is not separate from you.
