My counselling practice has now moved from Bristol to Devon. I am seeing clients for sessions at The Nautilus Rooms, Totnes and The Practice Rooms, Exeter. I am also conducting online therapy sessions via video platform.
When I initially moved down to Devon, knowing it would take a fair while to build up a practice in a new area, I decided to team up with The Kusnacht Practice and Brevin Healthcare. They offer individualized high end care for people who want a rounded package of support covering their psychiatric, psychotherapeutic and medical care. It took me to Zurich, Dubai, Kuwait and London where I was delivering intensive bouts of counselling for those with whom I worked. I feel very privileged to have had that opportunity to learn new ways of working that have strengthened my capacity to be flexible in the face of unusual circumstances and needs, as well as the benefits of solid therapeutic boundaries.
Having now settled in the South Hams and put my roots firmly down in the ochre soil of southern Devon I’ve found rooms to practice in both Totnes and Exeter. I am relishing the return to the gentle, steady power of weekly sessions with clients and the space this gives me to deepen connections with family, friends, the myriad progressive projects in the local community and, of course, the landscape itself.
I have established connections with two esteemed local organizations that I feel proud to support. Last season I ran a weekly therapeutic group for the “Becoming Indigenous’ course participants, providing reflective space for people to integrate their experiences and process dynamics within the group. I have stepped up to be a trustee of Write to Freedom – an innovative and transformational charity devoted to supporting addicts and young offenders to reclaim their potential through nature therapy, myth and creative writing. Last year I co-facilitated a monthly ‘grief circle’- a voluntary offering for any in the community seeking a place to touch, express and share their grief.
At The Nautilus Rooms in Totnes where I practice I am happy to be surrounded by a range of therapists, with a broad and suitably colourful array of therapeutic styles being offered. If you would like an assessment for Counselling in South Devon please contact me.
