About me

I am a Relate Qualified counsellor working with couples and individuals. I work as a Person-Centred counsellor, but use elements from several counselling approaches to work in an integrative way.

I aim to provide a supportive, non-judgemental, confidential and safe environment for counselling.

I am a professional and fully qualified counsellor working in Launceston and the surrounding areas.

I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their Ethical Guidelines for Good Practice in Counselling. I am fully insured and have an up to date enhanced DBS check.

My work is based on the belief that people have the ability to change and that each person has the potential for growth within himself or herself. I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is central to the work.


Counselling is not about giving advice, but together exploring ways of finding your own answers, making the right choices for yourself.

I have experienced counselling for myself, I know the value of being listened to and being able to share my difficulties with someone who cares, outside of my family and friends.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
