About me

I was born and brought up near Mevagissey and have a deep love and understanding of the heritage complexities of our county. Following college I moved out of county to train and work in Southampton where I experienced multi-cultural living and the wealth of difference that a sea-port town has to offer. I returned to Cornwall to bring up my four sons and be at hand for my ageing parents.

Now that those tasks have become less challenging I enjoy welcoming clients to my peaceful, secluded, purpose-built practice on our domestic premises in Pentewan. Please feel free to telephone any day (weekends included) before 8pm, or email, to further explore whether I might have the right expertise and personality to meet your requirements.

Should you choose to engage my services I hope that you will feel safe, well received and understood during our work within which we will explore options towards your happier and more effective functioning.

Training, qualifications & experience

QUALIFICATIONS:

My professional journey, until now, began with a B.Ed in 1985, teaching in an inner-city, multi-cultural, middle-school in Southampton.

On moving back to Cornwall I further qualified in Person-Centred counselling and Psychotherapy in 2004 with Plymouth University and accredited with the BACP in 2007.

In 2009 I completed training as a Counselling Supervisor with University College Plymouth and then achieved my BACP Senior accreditation in 2015.

My interest in Transactional Analysis led me, at this point, to complete the TA101 plus a selection of supplementary workshops.

In 2018 I furthered an interest in trauma counselling with a diploma in Crisis and Trauma Counselling and continue to train in EMDR as additional support for clients battling with post traumatic symptoms.

Throughout this time I have maintained a national standard of continued development in a wide range of issues that arise within my work.

COUNSELLING  EMPLOYMENT:

Throughout this time I have:

  • worked in both a school and university setting and with young adults on a private basis.
  • worked specifically with victims of childhood rape and sexual abuse.
  • Worked for BeMe as part of the NHS.
  • developed my own private practice, working from Pentewan: PL26 6DD
  • delivered counselling and professional support for Devon and Cornwall Constabulary
  • delivered counselling support to major organisations on behalf of a selection of national and international Employee Assistance Programmes.
  • facilitated a support group for those living with secondary breast cancer
  • delivered on-site critical incident, psychological support using a CISD model and trauma counselling drop-ins, for a selection of large organisations.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
