If you or someone you know are stuck trying to live with anxiety, low mood, loss or judgement through having neuro diversity (dyslexia & dyspraxia), I have 15 years experience and training in supporting clients; children and adults with these issues. I also work with clients struggling with lives impacted by difficult childhoods through trauma. Talking therapy is part of the support I offer, sharing reduces isolation and shame and enables clients to think differently about what has happened to them. I offer a nurturing environment where a client is treated as an individual with kindness, active listening and no judgment.

You're not broken or damaged, but it can feel that way when dealing with big emotions. I will help you to overcome any barriers or big emotions that are weighing you down. I will support you to become the best version of yourself, so that you can live your best life. For me, this is what counselling is all about- helping you when you feel stuck or overwhelmed, and then getting you to a place where you're back in the driving seat and in control of your life. I offer a space to be heard and supported, so that you can understand what you are experiencing. You are not broken, you are just really full at the moment. I'd love to help you.

I understand the importance of a comfortable, safe space for clients to share and I can draw on my extensive integrative training to tailor the sessions to meet your needs. Whilst the present moment is key to change, I understand how the past can impact the present, as can concerns about the future. It can be hard to learn, but it is often harder to unlearn.

Working together with you, my aim is to reach a shared understanding of the root causes of your difficulties, and the current context which may be preventing change and maintaining the problems. This, alongside gathering information about your strengths and ways forward provides the basis for change and personal growth for you. Often this exploration and formulation process is all that is needed to set you off on your own voyage; newly equipped. If you need further help then any interventions that are undertaken are based on our shared formulation within your unique social context, family, work and social relationships.

It takes courage to become truly and confidently oneself. I combine modern therapeutic practice with a mindfulness based approach, which uses the deep relationship between body and mind to bring back mental, emotional and physical balance. I use a a mixture of counselling and yoga combined as needed, to address imbalances of mind and body. Yoga therapy will help you to: develop insight into what is happening inside you, psychologically and emotionally. cultivate the presence of mind to be able to feel your way into uncomfortable experiences and disarm them, calm the nervous system and enhance autonomy and well-being.

Hi there, if you have found your way here then perhaps you aren't quite feeling yourself, maybe you feel a bit lost, like life is against you or like you can't cope. It can feel daunting to start talking about how you are feeling, particularly if no one has asked you before. Maybe you think your feelings don't matter, they do matter here. We can start to gently explore these feelings together so that you can feel better about yourself, less anxious and more grounded in your life. I understand that breaking the silence can be very difficult; I am here to listen and we will work at a pace set by you.

I work with adults and young people and offer both short and long term therapy. Sometimes life’s challenges may feel overwhelming, emotionally exhausting or relentless and we may seek professional support to help us find our way through. Anxiety, depression, feeling lost, lonely, confused or traumatised are just some of the many issues people bring. Whilst our personal stories and the reasons for our distress are ultimately as unique as we are, I have found that clients of all ages share a common goal; the desire to gain new perspectives and deeper understandings of themselves and to explore the possibilities and means of change.

During our first meet we will discuss and agree how we can best work together, the frequency and duration of the therapy and desired outcome, whether that's just wanting to feel better in some way, or something more targeted. This will then form a kind of contract which we will base the work on whilst reviewing it periodically. Usually sessions will be held on a weekly basis during the same time slot each week. I integrate a range of different psychotherapeutic approaches subject to your needs.

Self-Harming Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Paignton or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Paignton counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Paignton. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Paignton, psychologists and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Paignton or treatment for self harming.
