About me

I believe everyone has the basic right to enjoy life to the full, in our relationships, leisure time and work life. We all experience set-backs but our thoughts, feelings and behaviour determine how we cope and what level of fulfillment we experience from life. I am committed to helping my clients significantly improve their quality of life.

I help my clients to learn new skills, awarenesses, beliefs and strategies that not only get them through their current difficulty but also equip them to deal with issues in 'future days.' Put simply I believe a professional should show someone how to use a tool for themselves rather than do the work for them. 

I have over 15 years experience as a Psychotherapist, Supervisor and trainer, please see - www.futuredays.org.uk.

I deal with issues such as:-
Stress/Anxiety, Anger, Depression, PTSD, Phobias, Trauma, Personality Disorders,
Eating Disorders, Bereavement, Communication Skills, Career Development,
Couples Counselling / Relationship Issues, Family Issues, plus many more.

Who Am I?

I am a relaxed and friendly character, although I can be enthusiastic and assertive when circumstance require. My FREE initial consultation gives you the chance to meet me for yourself; completely free of obligation. 

I am an experienced therapist, supervisor, trainer, published author and mental health professional with extensive experience working nationally and locally here in Cornwall, where I was born.

It takes a lot of courage to ask for help and the decision to seek psychotherapy can be a difficult one. I treat all my clients with respect and kindness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started Future Days in 1999. I first saw clients for CRUSE, offering bereavement counselling from a person centred perspective. I then started to work with private clients while I was completing my 4 years post graduate training in Transactional Analysis (TA), Psychotherapy, which led to my Advanced Diploma and Accreditation with the ITA (Now UKATA) as a TA Practitioner.

In 2004 I reached 450 client hours and shortly after gained accreditation with BACP as a Psychotherapist. I have now accrued several thousand client contact hours, as a therapist and supervisor. Since then I have trained, studied and read extensively many different therapeutic approaches. I continue to study and expand my knowledge and utilise regular supervision, above and beyond the BACP guidelines.

In 2009 I trained as an EMDR Psychotherapist and have successfully integrated this into my therapy practice. Please see my EMDR page. I am also committed to the wider field of mental health. I am a director and trustee of the national charity, MHHP (Mental Health Helplines Partnership), where I work to improve access, quality and governance of mental health helplines across the country.

I am an Executive Director of Re-Gain (Cornwall) C.I.C. - Cornwall's first mental health specific social enterprise. We currently run three projects, Nightlink, Sanctuary and NEST. - see links.

In 2008 I co-wrote and edited "The Little Book of the Mind" see - Amazon - "The Little Book of the Mind."
