Are you experiencing difficulties individually or as a couple which you feel unable to work through personally? Perhaps you feel stuck?
Counselling offers a confidential setting in which to bring any difficulties you face.
I am an Integrative Counsellor working from both the outskirts and centre of Truro, Cornwall. I offer an empathic, non-judgemental approach and am passionate about the counselling process. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to bring about empowerment and change and will work with you to facilitate this.
Counselling has inspired me to reflect on my own life and to help others do the same and I believe the change brought about from therapy can be profoundly life changing.
I work with individuals over the age of 12, couples and have experience of working with a range of issues including:
Anxiety, depression, affairs, separation and divorce, phobias, family issues, panic attacks, GAD, sex issues, psychosis, dissociation, abortion, OCD, PTSD, anger management, sexuality, self esteem issues, unresolved childhood, relationship and marriage difficulties, family issues, spirituality, personality disorder, suicidal thoughts, physical and sexual abuse, bereavement and loss, stress, self harm, trauma and bullying.
I have a particular interest in mental health and relationship issues and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.
Working as an Integrative counsellor I use my humanistic core to build a strong base of trust in the relationship then draw on ideas from other approaches depending on what best suits the individual's needs. I enjoy working existentially, looking at the meaning we each give to our lives and psychodynamically, linking past events and exploring their effect on the present.
I offer face to face, online, telephone and walk and talk therapy depending on the client's needs.
Having completed level 1,2,3 and Master Practitioner in Mindfulness, I apply the main principles into my therapeutic approach where appropriate.
mindfulness can help with many things- there are huge benefits to living in a more mindful way, reduces anxiety by simply staying grounded and learning to live in the present.
I have also completed CPD in level 4 Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and achieved higher distinction and most recently completed ABC certified Diploma in DBT

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.
