A little about me

Before training in counselling, I spent many years as a teacher of 3-19 year olds in mainstream and special education, both in London, and when I returned to Devon in the 1990s. I have worked with adults and young people of varying ages, engaging in long or short term therapeutic work to suit individual needs.

Therapy, like life, is a journey across varied terrains.  My own extensive, mixed-terrain story over six decades continues to deepen my compassion and my empathy.  It is always an immense privilege to see the process of therapy support profound, positive shifts in people’s lives.

I frequently take part in cpd courses including a Diploma in Sandplay Therapy, training in Embodied Psychotherapy and cpd in therapeutic art.   Frequent CPD  informs and enriches the therapeutic process.  As a registered member of the BACP, I abide by their code of ethics. The BACP is accredited by the Public Standards Authority.

I love many things; here are only a few: to dance, to swim in the sea, to walk and spend time in woods, on moors, in rivers and fields and my frequent encounters with fellow human and non-human beings!

I love to learn which means I am constantly expanding my knowledge together with my approaches to therapy and, of course,  to life. 

I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
