About me and my therapy practice

There may be times in people's lives when issues or circumstances may feel overwhelming or insurmountable, leading them to feel anxious or depressed.  This inner turmoil can lead to confusion and difficulty making decisions and in turn affect our personal well being and relationships with others. This may lead them to seek help from a qualified counsellor, someone who is impartial and will help them to explore in a safe way.

I am passionate about helping people to find their own solutions and a greater understanding of themselves. As a qualified counsellor I work in a person-centred way, treating everyone as a unique individual. I offer a non-judgemental and confidential environment, allowing us to explore issues or concerns which may be causing difficulty.

I am a trauma informed counsellor and have extensive experience of working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

I have a relaxed and comfortable room in my home in Bodmin Cornwall, ideally located within easy reach of the A30 and A39. Parking is available.

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, gained at Bracknell College in Berkshire and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

As a counsellor I feel it is important to continually update my skills and regularly attend Continual Professional Development workshops and lectures to increase my knowledge to gain a deeper understanding of my client's needs.

Previously, I worked for an agency with adults from 18 upwards, and also for a young person charity , in addition to private practice.

Practice description

I work primarily in a person- centred way which means I work alongside my clients, helping them to find the best solution for themselves but do introduce other modalities when appropriate. I do not offer advice or give instruction as I believe that each individual has the solution to their own problems even though it may not feel like that during times of difficulty.

I would work with you in a non-judgemental, respectful way, taking into consideration your values, culture and your autonomy.

My first session

It's important that you find the right therapist , this will enable you to feel comfortable; therefore gaining most  benefit from counselling.
