About me

I relate to my clients with the attitude and belief that life isn't easy and that it is normal and natural to need some help along the way.
I am aware of the value of attending to the interchanges between therapist and client, that is the relational dimension.  As a client, you can expect to be listened to very carefully. I will check with you that I fully understand, and appreciate the meaning of, whatever you may wish to communicate.  With relational support of this nature, you can ground yourself in the here-and-now, reflect upon how you are and your present-day situation, recognise and perhaps experience the influence of the past, and consider your options with regard to the future.

My approach to the practice of counselling and psychotherapy is based on humanistic values with you, the client, considered to be the expert with regard to yourself and your situation.  My aim is to work with you collaboratively for awareness to be gained and possible choices to be clarified.
With individuals the therapy is sometimes short term and can be longer-term.  With couples, a course of counselling often consists of just a few sessions.

I abide by the ethical standards of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which, of course, include a requirement for the practitioner to uphold the utmost in confidentiality.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been UKCP-registered as a psychotherapist for over 20 years.  My counselling and psychotherapy practice is ongoing at Wadebridge Osteopaths, and has recently become well established in Lemon Street, Truro.

My initial training was a two-year part-time course and I was awarded an IDHP diploma in Humanistic Psychology in 1986. As a humanistic counsellor, I typically took an empathic and person-centred stance. With further training in gestalt therapy over 7 years, including courses at the Metanoia Institute in Ealing, I qualified in gestalt psychotherapy in 1993.  Since that time, with continuing professional development, my practice has become more holistic and relational.  I continue to refine my counselling and therapy skills, and to broaden my theoretical understanding with a more integrative outlook.

In addition, I work as a clinical supervisor.  After many years' experience as a tutor/trainer/supervisor on Counselling courses up to Diploma level at Cornwall College, nowadays much of my supervision work is in private practice.  Also however, I provide regular group supervision, with Specialist Nurses, for the NHS.

In my own training as a supervisor, I gained: a Certificate in Supervision awarded by the Metanoia Institute in 1999; a Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision awarded by Cascade Training Associates, in 2012; and a ABC Diploma in Casework Supervision, in 2012.  I am listed in the UKCP register of Approved Supervisors (Humanistic/Integrative section).

Having retired from Osteopathy in April 2015, now I have more focus, commitment and availability for the practice of counselling and therapy with individuals, and for couples counselling.
