I specialise in working with anxiety, depression and anger. These issues commonly show themselves through difficulties in relationships, and there is often a feeling of being caught in a web of emotions and behaviours that is intractable.
I follow a Gestalt approach which works to increase awareness around patterns, and uses our inherent capacity for whole-brain perception and thinking.
I also work with many other emotions and issues that people bring. My training and background allows me to help you untangle the strands of what is going on and steadily regain a sense of yourself as a whole and healthy human being.
I have been in private practice since 2013 and am offering one to one sessions in Exeter and Crediton. I am working face to face and online during the pandemic. My standard fee is £55 per session. Sessions last 50 minutes. I am implementing a 3 tiered fee system where those on higher incomes are invited to pay an 'Equalising fee' of £65 or £75 per session. The extra will directly offset 'Concessionary' fees of £35 or £45 for those on lower incomes. There is no obligation to pay the higer rate, and no 'means testing'.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
