About me and my therapy practice
I am a person-centred counsellor and as such, the client is always at the centre of all sessions. I have no agenda when I work with a client: it it always set by you, directed by you. My role is to create a place of safety, where you can be vulnerable and real. I am there to support you through the process, to be by your side as together we explore the issues that are disturbing you.
I have worked with Counselling for Social Change/ Low Cost Counselling Cornwall for 3 years, where I have worked with a wide variety of clients.
I am a warm and approachable person. I have worked as a teacher in post-16 education for 35 years and the last 10 years were spent working with disaffected students: my work with them was increasingly pastoral and supportive as much as educational. I have also worked in adult education.
I am happy to use other forms of counselling to support you, in particular Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I offer a half hour introductory session to clients for a reduced fee of £15 with no commitment. I also offer concessionary rates to people in receipt of benefits ( Tax credits, Personal Independence Payments)
