Sometimes, deciding to go to a therapist or counsellor can be a difficult step. Some people feel a sense of failure if they haven’t been able to sort out their problems by themselves. Others may find the idea of therapy daunting.

People can go through difficult times in their life which can give a feeling of anxiety, depression, being overwhelmed, feeling sad or low mood.

Counselling is my passion, if you are spiritual you could think of it as my calling, a chance to be part of something that is truly life-changing for my clients; it allows me to watch them discover their worth when they were convinced they had none and then see them living a more fulfilling life.

Being accused of domestic abuse, especially if it is a false allegation changes your life forever, and I understand the impact of that as well as being a victim of domestic abuse yourself.

As men, it can be really hard to open up about “personal problems”, especially when we’re constantly told to “man up” and “get on with it”.…
Domestic abuse, in addition to being a distressing and traumatic experience, brings so many issues and questions. You may be feeling angry, ashamed, unheard, confused or a combination of these.

When you’ve been on the receiving end of domestic abuse or a false accusation everything changes.

There is someone who will listen, will hear you, will believe you.…
Exeter and Crediton
I am committed to working with people who want to bring more awareness to their lives or who want to make a change to their lives. I see us as beings of consciousness who are experiencing themselves in bodies and trying to make sense of the whole thing.
I also see us as beings who are deeply interconnected, with way more similarities than actual differences, even though we tend to see ourselves as separate and become preoccupied with differences to the point of excluding others and isolating ourselves.…
