About me and my therapy practice
“The process of becoming who you will be begins first with the total acceptance of who you are” Bhanta Henepola Gunaratana
All our lives have stories. Living with stories we may not like, understand or feel uncomfortable to share can often lead to stress and self doubt.
I offer a safe, respectful, non-judgemental and supportive space for you to share and explore your story, to help you make better sense of your feelings, relationships, challenges and other experiences, and to move forward with your life.
Working within a person-centred, humanistic and relational framework, I see counselling as a collaborative process which involves developing trust and confidence so you feel increasingly able to be open, honest and to grow in your self-esteem and personal development.
As a counsellor and writing/ poetry therapist, I can offer a variety of approaches to our work together. With a passion for the outdoors I am also trained in nature-based therapy so happy to work outside as well as in more traditional settings. I offer one to one or couple counselling and small group therapeutic writing sessions, both online and face to face.
In addition to private practice, I have worked at Cornwall Neighbourhoods for Change, Falmouth and Exeter Universities, Sea Sanctuary, and volunteered with Counselling for Social Change. I have also taught English, Guidance/ Counselling and worked and trained in participatory health research. I have lived and worked in a number of different countries and enjoy working with and am sensitive to people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and experiences.
