About me

Hello and thank you for looking at my Profile. Are you grieving over the loss of a loved one, a loved pet, a job you lost? Or are you becoming anxious or losing confidence in yourself and who you are? Allow me to guide you gently and let us both look at your problem.

I am a Person Centred Counsellor working across Cornwall, but mainly out of Truro, Falmouth, St Austell, Penzance, Camborne.

I have a genuine interest in helping others become the best they can be, working with them to allow them the safe space to process their feelings and hopefully help them to think differently about their problems.  I will not judge you or put you down. Whilst in counselling with me during our sessions you are the most important person in that room and you will have my full attention.

I volunteer as a counsellor for two Charities based in Cornwall as well as having my own practice.

I work with adults only at the moment.

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 2 years

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

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.


If you are a wheelchair user please contact me as I may be able to come to you or I will need to source a room with access which I will be willing to do for you.
