I offer you a warm and compassionate space to talk about what is going on in your life. I believe it really can help to talk. My work is Person-Centred and as such non-judgemental, regardless of what you bring to the sessions.
I am open to working with everyone. As well as being a qualified counsellor my professional work experience includes education and for the past 18 years, the emergency services.
I am a qualified teacher with experience of providing 1-1 counselling for children and young people (I provide some sessions for the Dreadnought Centre in Pool) and have a current enhanced DBS check. I have recently joined the counselling teaching staff at Cornwall College.
I have my own private counselling room with parking/ toilet facilities. Alternatively, I am able to arrange sessions via Skype, Zoom or phone.
I can also offer you the chance to work outside- either walking and talking or at a suitable location.
Please do contact me with any enquiries.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
