About me

About Me
I walk alongside my clients and through our journey we can identify obstacles that seem to be holding them back in life and how the outlook of their future can be different.

I draw upon my theoretical models and knowledge gained through continuing personal and professional development and additional resources.

I am a registered member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and continually exploring and updating my knowledge and skills to support and enhance what I can offer you and in our work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have my Diploma in Counselling Level 4 with the cpcab, Diploma in Bereavement and trained with Cruse and Samaritans.

I have experience of counselling those that have been through or going through Domestic Abuse and been with the charity in Cornwall now for well over 4 years.

Other qualifications include the ASIST training (suicide first aid) Domestic Abuse Training Level 2 and 3

I  have just completed the cpcab level 5 CBT, skills and theory course to allow me to utilise CBT but  I am not a CBT Therapist and am half way through the cpcab level 5 Psychotherapeutic Counselling course - continually updating my skills and knowledge for my clients.

Member organisations


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.
