In 2014 at my home near Totnes and Torbay in South Devon I was inspired to write and self-publish my first book ‘Understanding the Highly Sensitive Child’.  A simple and easy to read book designed to help the reader to better understand highly sensitive children and to help parents and carers to feel that they are not alone. 


I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I offer a counselling service for adults which can be either face to face (located near Totnes and Torbay in South Devon) or by telephone or online video call.

Supporting The Highly Sensitive Child

I am a parent of a child who is highly sensitive, in fact I noticed bits of me an my other child in there too and it has made me have a better understand and approach to managing our lives. A must read for parents and anyone who has contact with children who are highly sensitive. I can't wait to read more.



Supporting the Highly Sensitive Child

I bought this for a friend who has been feeling quite challenged by one of her children. I suggested the child was most likely highly sensitive and sent her this book - she says it has been transformational and she wished she'd had it sooner.



Understanding the Highly Sensitive Child

I really liked this book. I have read quite a few books on High sensitivity - and I liken my own sensitivity to my inner child/core self so I found this book clear, concise, helpful, and insightful. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be more sensitive to other children or to themselves.
