Working as a counsellor in a GP surgery, and also in a local Health Centre has provided me with the opportunity of counselling a wide range of people with a variety of issues. I have also worked with young people at a local Secondary school.
My Private practice is based in Exmouth, East Devon.
I work with adults both individuals and couples and I also offer group therapy and training together with work with people with issues surrounding food. I have done some work with BEAT (eating disorders association) and train other therapists in this area. I am also an LGBTQ+ affirmative Therapist.
I am also employed by a number of Employee Assistance Programmes and so it may be possible to contact me through your workplace who may then pay for any counselling.
I use a variety of approaches tailored to each individual to help improve their ability to cope with their difficulties. I also teach skills and practical ways of dealing with situations. An example of this would be how to prevent panic attacks returning once someone has eliminated them.
