In visiting my website you are probably considering how counselling might be able to help you or, more specifically, how I can help you.
You may be struggling at the moment and wondering how to cope. I am here to lend you some hope until you are able to find your own.
I am passionately committed to helping my clients find a way of working through whatever issues are troubling them. Firstly, you need to know if I am safe to work with. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work to their ethical framework.
You may also be wondering if I know enough and have enough experience to be able to help you. I qualified as a counsellor in June 2007, graduating from the University of Highlands & Islands (Moray College). I qualified as a counselling supervisor in 2009. I have worked in private practice, GP practices, for healthcare companies and as a volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland.
I have supervised both experienced and trainee counsellors. Currently my clients contact me after reading my website or seeing my profile on the UKRCP register or Counselling Directory, or they are referred by their GP, private healthcare company or through a workplace Employee Assistance Programme provider (details on my About page). I work with individual clients (age 18+ years).
An important consideration is – will we get on?
I hope that in browsing my website you will get an idea of who I am, the way in which I work and what's important to me. If you feel we would be able to work together please contact me and I will reply within 24 hours (within my working hours).
Training – CPD Workshops
Sessions can be held either face to face or via video (or a mix of both).
If you choose face to face sessions these will be in the centre of Exeter. My office is on the second floor of one of the beautiful old Georgian buildings in Queen Street, which offers a great deal of privacy. There are two car parks less than five minutes walk from the building and Central Station is two minutes walk away.
If you decide that video sessions suit you better we can use whichever encrypted platform you feel most comfortable with.
