Safe Therapy
23 Lockyer Street Plymouth, Devon Website: Safe Therapy Website


When you’ve been on the receiving end of domestic abuse or a false accusation everything changes.  Your perception of your self and everything and everyone around you can become something quite unrecognisable.  Anger, betrayal, humiliation, shame, loss, confusion, anxiety, and depression are all not uncommon responses to what has been happening.  There is someone who will listen, will hear you, will believe you.

I am an integrative counsellor based in Plymouth. I am also experienced in conducting sessions online if that is something that would be helpful. Let’s see if we can work together to find a way forwards for you from here.

Using a office in Plymouth, I see private clients (individuals and couples) and clients from employee assistance programmes (EAPs) from all walks of life and with a variety of problems or issues they’d like to work through.

I have a good understanding of the challenges that men and other genders face with regards to domestic abuse and violence.  I have a wide knowledge of gender and sexual diversities (GSD) and I am a kink-knowledgeable therapist.
