What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book a preliminary assessment meeting in Barnstaple.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what issue regarding your early years and/or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of managing.
