I am interested in people and how we relate to each other and the world around us, and this motivates my work as a counsellor.
From my own experience, and that of those I have worked with, I know that life itself throws up many challenges that get in the way of enjoying and living life to the full. I like being with people, sharing hope and coming alongside to find the ways through.
Exeter has been my home for a large part of my adult life and I love living in this part of Devon with all the beautiful open spaces of coast and countryside close by. I have worked for many years in local schools both as a School Counsellor as well as in several other roles supporting children and young people with autism or learning difficulties, behavioural difficulties and those from minority ethnic backgrounds.
With my family I also lived and worked for several years in central and northern Spain, involved in an international drug rehabilitation organisation. I enjoy the outdoors, yoga, reading and art, and am interested in cultural diversity both around the world and locally here in Exeter.
