“So when you are listening to somebody, completely, attentively, then you are listening

not only to the words, but also to the feeling of what is being conveyed,

to the whole of it, not part of it”


- Jiddu Krishnamurti -

About One Life

Perhaps one of the most important insights I have gained from my counselling experience is the importance of having a safe place where you can talk to a trustworthy, good listener. Without counselling I really do not know which direction my life would have taken but I’m quite confident I wouldn’t be in the positive, balanced place I am now!

I have always felt thankful for my counselling experience and for the patience, validation and support I was shown throughout my journey of self-awareness and healing which is why I decided to train and become a counsellor myself. I feel passionate about helping others find the resolution and peace that I found with the help and intervention of counselling.

I am a BACP qualified counsellor located in Barnstaple. I supply a counselling service in Barnstaple, Braunton, Bideford, and the surrounding North Devon areas.

I gained a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  After qualifying as a counsellor, I decided to form One Life Counselling with the hope of helping other people overcome their painful issues and limiting beliefs.

Sometimes all we want is just to feel better about life in general.

As an integrative counsellor, my aim is to encourage you to increase your self-awareness,
your awareness of relationships and of the world around us, to understand
why we are who we are and why we think and react in such a way that doesn’t serve us well. 


Developing this awareness through counselling can have an extraordinary effect on the healing process and give you the valuable, empowering tools to move forward.

There are so many reasons why most of us, at some point in our life feel low, lost and in some need of support, understanding and guidance.  Depression and anxiety, low self esteem and grief are just a few of the issues which can affect our everyday lives in such a negative, painful way and can leave you feeling helpless, hopeless and stuck.
Sometimes all you need is a safe space and time to voice your feelings and thoughts and be listened to with compassion and without judgment.  To feel validated and understood can give you the hope and belief that you can move forward towards a happier, fulfilled future.
One Life provides you with that safe space to talk and be heard, allowing the healing process to unfold. As a qualified counsellor I am dedicated to your mental and emotional well-being. Together we will work through your issues and worries with the aim that you will emerge feeling empowered and able to cope with what life brings.
