I am a Qualified Psychotherapist based in Devon, UKCP Registered, with over 25 years' experience working with Adults, Children & Young People both private practice and the NHS. I support patients across Exeter and Totnes. I provide therapeutic support to local Authority Social Care services and work in a CAMHS team. I have a private practice, providing one to one therapy for adults and children. Originally, I've trained in Body Psychotherapy as an adult psychotherapist 30 years ago. I have since broadened my interests and training and now work extensively with families and children as well as with individual adult psychotherapy clients. I have undertaken additional training in DDP and EMDR trauma therapy and often combine treatment of Narrative psychotherapy with EMDR trauma therapy, providing rapid, positive and successful outcomes. I am known for my warmth, directness and thoughtful, down to earth style. I combine analytic and playful aspects of working.
Whether you are an adult, child, parent or carer in Exeter or Totnes, my balanced approach remains both knowledgeable and compassionate, offering the support you need to get better, and delivering simple and effective guidelines to individuals and families, helping you to develop the tools you need to succeed together.
How I can help
DDP - Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy
DDP is an effective therapy for deepening the emotional connections in your relationships with others. It supports both your child and family to offer therapy, advice and support for all of you to benefit.
EMDR Trauma Therapy
EMDR is a treatment specifically developed to reduce anxiety and fear related to developmental trauma and PTSD. It is proven to be very effective in processing trauma lodged in our minds, by reducing the emotional intensity of responses to daily triggers connected to specific traumatic memories. It helps rebuild confidence by neurologically 're-installing' positive beliefs. My focus with this treatment is creating a safe environment to support you in developing constructive coping mechanisms for the future.
Children & Young People Psychotherapy
This therapy provides you and your child with Psychotherapy a safe place to explore difficult feelings. It helps parents develop skills to prevent problems escalating to a severe level. It fosters safety and trust through interaction in a supportive space which includes communication through talking and play.
Adult Integrative Therapy
Whether you come as a result of crisis or a sense of curiosity about yourself, this is an opportunity to explore long held beliefs and attitudes that may not fit any more. I can support you to explore your inner self, perhaps understand things in a new way, and reach decisions about your life through adult integrative therapy..
