About me

'How are you?’  How often do you reply truthfully to others and to yourself?

Therapy is a journey of change, recognising the truth of how you really feel in a supportive, confidential, non-judgmental environment, empowering you to find your own voice, confidence, knowledge and awareness. Reconnecting with these enables you to move forward. Allow yourself regular time in a peaceful space away from the demands of life to talk in private with someone who is objective and impartial. As an integrative, person centred psychotherapist you are the complete focus, I use a flexible approach to fit your needs.

I have over 20yrs experience working with children and young people. I provide a relaxed and safe environment and work creatively and holistically exploring different ways of expression that talking doesn't always reach, this is effective for both adults and young people alike.

My experience includes anxiety, depression, identity, historical & lived trauma and abuse, relationship issues, bereavement, panic & stress, eating disorders, self-harm, PTSD, family dynamics, loss of purpose among many other issues.

I also run therapeutic retreats in Cornwall, workshops for therapists, and wellbeing workshops & 1:1 support in the workplace.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.
