Counselling in Torquay

I am an experienced counsellor with a warm and non-judgemental approach. I offer short-term counselling for specific problems or long-term open-ended therapy to explore deeper issues. I work with adults (18+) offering both individual and couples counselling.


In my early 30s I trained in London as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. More recently I also gained a qualification in coaching and mentoring.


If you're struggling with a problem or want to get more meaning out of life, counselling may help. I'll work sensitively and honestly with you to support you in what you're going through.


I welcome clients from all over Torbay, Torquay, Maidencombe, Marldon, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmouth, Totnes and surrounding areas. 




I offer a broad counselling service to help with issues such as anger, bereavement and loss, depression, shame and low self-esteem, relationship and family issues. 

I'm also particularly experienced in working with people who:


  • are in recovery from addiction, eating disorders and “co-dependency”
  • were abused or neglected as children or who grew up in “dysfunctional” families
  • were adopted or are exploring other issues of identity
  • are struggling with issues of sexuality and intimacy.



Life coaching in Torquay

Next to counselling I also offer life coaching.


Do you want to feel more positive about the life that you lead? Make some big changes? Perhaps take on a new challenge?


Coaching helps you achieve the results you want in your life. The focus is on getting really clear what it is you want and then identifying the steps you need to take to realise your full potential.


This could be about any aspect of life … landing your dream job; finding the work-life balance that suits you or improving the quality of your relationships.
