About me

Anxious, grieving, abused or maybe lost your mojo - there will be no judgement from me - you are important - your problems are not silly.

I walk alongside my client through their journey and  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 continually updating my skills and knowledge for my clients.

Member organisations


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.
