I am an experienced Person-Centred Counsellor and have worked in a variety of settings both in the private and public sector. Life can present us with many difficulties and throw all sort of challenges in our way and at times we need to seek extra support to help us cope. I seek to offer a safe, supportive and confidential environment for you to explore your current concerns.
I have a particular interest in the journey of life, its varying stages and perplexities. For my diploma in counselling I researched the stages of spiritual growth and linked these with counselling practice as an aid to understanding the need to include and allow for the spiritual in counselling.
Person-Centred counselling has its foundations in the philosophy and work of Carl Rogers. Its central belief is that the person seeking counselling has within them the resources to direct them through the issues they are facing. The counsellor’s role is to help them find and access these resources and it is the relationship between the counsellor and the client which is at the heart of this process.
I initially trained with CRUSE Bereavement care which I then followed with my professional training in Person-Centred Counselling. For ten years I ran The Wellspring Centre near Truro where I created a therapeutic environment for myself, other practitioners and our clients. Other counselling models, theories and perspectives inform my practice. I have attended many workshops and have a particular interest in transactional analysis, assertiveness, dream work, spirituality, depression, stress, anxiety, loss and bereavement, and relationship issues.
I currently practice in Liskeard.
