Supervision and Fees

I currently work with counselling students during placements, qualified counsellors and other professionals requiring supervisory support.

(Some concessions for students, low income clients and carers).


£50 per hour for 1:1 & Group Supervision Sessions. 


Bespoke Full or 1/2 Day Retreat in a place of Calm

I offer bespoke Retreat days for clients who need a day away to replenish, a restorative day following a stressful event such as loss or bereavement. The bespoke Retreat day is replenishing, an opportunity to recharge, redefine and refocus in a quiet, calm and supportive space. Prices available on request.


Mill House Retreat Centre is a stone’s throw away from my Studio, one of Devon’s best kept secrets. Excellent for a "get away" from the maddening crowds, a day retreat or a group meeting or conference. A place of nature, charm, kindness, log fires, breadmaking and calm abounds there http://millhouseretreats.co.uk/


Support Group Facilitation

If you require a facilitator for group work, please do call or email me to discuss, I am a trained group facilitator and Coach. I currently work with Charites, NHS and Community Groups facilitating ranges of support groups i.e., user engagement, educational, health promotional events and group sessions.


I manage informal Bereavement Support Groups at Cullompton Community Centre in Mid Devon on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7pm. Please email or call me if you would like to attend.


I manage and facilitate support groups on a monthly basis for women with secondary breast cancer in Taunton on behalf of Breast Cancer Now. Our work is currently face to face and online.

When contracting I explain to all my clients that counselling is confidential.


I also advise that sometimes you may wish to let someone know you are seeing a counsellor but that is your decision. I will never call you unless you are happy for me to do so or acknowledge you outside the counselling room unless you are comfortable with that.


Confidentiality may be broken if I feel you, or someone else, may be in danger, if possible I will try to discuss this with you first. I also discuss issues with my supervisor as part of my professional role and responsibility as set out by the BACP.


I keep notes as per BACP guidelines and the data protection act 1998 and GDPR 2018, they are stored securely. Notes are for my professional use only and do not contain any identifiable details. Your personal details are stored separately.


I am a member of the ICO, I do not distribute newsletters or send out any bulk emails, I adhere to GDPR Guidance (General Data Protection Regulations ) May 2018. I liaise 1:1 with clients using their preferred method of communication. 




I hold a 24-hour cancellation policy, this allows sessions or meetings to be offered to other clients. Appointments cancelled without 24 hours’ notice will incur a full charge. Note I am sympathetic to extenuating circumstances.
