I have benefitted from counselling through a number of difficult times in my life. Having someone listen and connect with me has helped me to understand myself better, and to process some complex emotions. My experience is that counselling really works.
My aim is to provide a supportive, safe and confidential space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings. I very much hope that this will help you through whatever difficulties you are experiencing. You are also welcome to use the time to celebrate your triumphs.
I have been working as a university teacher and researcher in psychology for around 20 years. During that time, as well as learn about how our minds and brains work, I have helped many of my students through stress, anxiety and depression. Recently, I decided to focus more on the listening side of my role, through counselling training at Iron Mill College, Exeter. I am now coming towards the end of the second (final) year of the BACP accredited Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling.
I very much look forward to meeting you.
