About me

Hello and welcome!

I am a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist and Family & Couple Psychotherapist accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Association of Family Therapy (AFT), with over 15 years experience of working with people with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties in the NHS (London and Cornwall) and in the private sector.

I have a therapy clinic in Truro and in Falmouth where I offer therapeutic support to children, young people, adults, couples and families. I can also offer home visits across Cornwall to facilitate access to therapy. I am trained to work with people of all ages and abilities and with a wide variety of issues using evidence-based techniques in a group setting or individually.

I have a wide experience of working with children, young people, couples and families in many areas where individuals and their family face difficulties such as communication problems, life transitions (separation, divorce, step-family life, loss of employment, bereavement, illness), and the impact this can have on mental health (anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harm).

I have extensive experience of working with trauma in adults and children. I offer support to parents/carers/special guardians to explore parenting dilemmas, therapeutic parenting and emotional attunement.

In order to do this I draw on:

  • Systemic Family Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Neurosciences
  • Attachment theory.

My aim is always to provide a safe and confidential space in which my clients feel able to talk openly about their difficulties and consider new ways of addressing them. I also like to work collaboratively with them to find the approach that suits them best.

Getting on together, communicating and understanding each other as a family or couple can be difficult and sometimes coming to see a trained professional to talk, together or separately, really helps.

Family Therapy, also called systemic therapy, helps people in close relationship help each other. It enables family members to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on family strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives.

Different combinations of family members can be seen separately as well as together to ensure that everyone can be heard and talk through what is on their mind before ideally coming back together.

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.
