I am a Senior Accredited member of the NCS (National Counselling Society) and my name is on the PSA Register via the NCS.
I work under the Humanistic umbrella and am increasingly using elements of Mindfulness in my practice. I work in mid Devon, and work with historical trauma resulting in anxiety and depression. I trained in the area of Bereavement and strongly believe in attachment theory and basic human needs being met, and my work is aimed at the individual uncovering their own potential for recovery.
I am very aware of the difficulties faced by some men in disclosing their experiences, and of the feelings of shame and guilt which can result from them, and my role is to listen without judgement or the offering of advice.
I offer a discreet, quiet and confidential space within walking distance of the town centre, and my practice has good connections to the M5 motorway, making it within a reasonable driving distance from Exeter, Taunton and Barnstaple via the A361. There is a local bus service and free parking a short distance away.
I have trained on the ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills) course.
My fee is set at £45 per face to face individual session of 1 hour (reduced to £35 for those who find me via the MenCASA website).
Couples are £80 per session of 1 hour (reduced to £70 for those who find me via the MenCASA website).
I can offer individual supervision to therapists who work with gender inclusivity, at a competitive fee of £60 per 1.5hrs, if they are directed to me via the MenCASA website.
