About me

Hi, I have been an integrative counsellor for over 20 years working with young people (from 8 years upwards) and adults. I am lucky enough to now be based at Middleway Complementary Therapy Centre in St Blazey where I offer face to face therapy or phone and video call sessions if that's preferred. I am BACP accredited and also registered as a therapist with BUPA and WPA healthcare. 

If you are reading this page now and considering counselling you have already taken a big step forward. The service that I offer is confidential and we can work together in a safe supportive space to help create the change and healing you need.

Please feel free to give me a call text or email with any questions you have. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a person centred counsellor in 2001 and in 2005 gained a postgraduate diploma in Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I ran visualisation/relaxation groups and mindfulness groups at New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton for 6 years and incorporated mindfulness, visualisation/relaxation and CBT techniques into my work alongside person centred and solution focused therapy. Over the years I have worked in a variety of settings in a GPs surgery, Teenage Pregnancy Unit, Cancer Psychology Service, Rape Crisis Centre and bereavement service. Since returning to Cornwall I worked for Young People Cornwall supporting 8-18 year olds with their mental health and well-being and now have a private practice as Violet Dragonfly Therapy at Middleway. 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
