Who I Am

I am a person-centred therapist but beyond that and more importantly I’m empathetic, Kind, Compassionate, Non-Judgemental and of course a great listener.

I will sit beside you in your pain, anxiety, sadness, and darkest hour.

We will explore together whatever you wish to explore, and I will be your champion.

I hope to be the person you have always needed.

I truly care and I am passionate about my work

My Background

Before training to be a counsellor I spent many years working within the care system firstly with parents and their children, then as a foster carer before moving on to accommodate teenagers leaving the care system.

I have always been drawn to work in a job where I can make a real difference and it was in my role as a foster carer that inspired me to become a counsellor.

I had a sibling group in my care who had experienced a lot of trauma in their life and were receiving no therapeutic interventions, I felt it was a grave injustice and something that would have hugely benefited them so I decided to train to become the person that they needed.

Two years ago, I started a Facebook group called ‘Empowered women of Cornwall’, the group has over 5200 members and has been featured twice on BBC Radio Cornwall and Cornwall live. I set it up as a place for isolated women in Cornwall to make friends and offer and be offered support.

I was honoured this year to be included in Cornwall lives list of Women making a difference in Cornwall.

About me and my therapy practice

My Experience

As well as my many years of working within the care system I have also attended numerous training courses to expand my knowledge.

I have attended intensive courses on Sexual abuse and Rape, addiction, Self-Harm, anxiety and depression, Attachment disorder and childhood bereavement.

I am currently midway through an 18-month course working with children and young people who have experienced trauma.

I also work 1-1 and, in a group setting with autistic children and young people through play and art and I have worked within a secondary school as a counsellor.

What is person-centred counselling ?

The core belief of person-centred therapy is that all of us have the potential to grow. I will promote this process, providing support to you as you make your way through this journey.

This non-direct style of counselling is thought to be beneficial to those who have a strong urge to explore themselves and their feelings, and for those who want to address specific habits or patterns of thinking. It deals with how you perceive yourself, and you have a free choice to discuss any issues you want to with no agenda or pressure from myself.
