About me

Hello and welcome to my profile. Are you struggling with your feelings and emotions? For example, perhaps you’ve experienced a relationship or friendship breakdown, a bereavement or a change to employment. Or do you worry a lot, feel sad, irritable or angry? Maybe you have little energy or feel tense. You may have noticed that coronavirus has brought on a different level of fear, anxiety, low mood or depression.

We all struggle from these kind of feelings from time to time, sometimes we can manage them, and sometimes we find them more difficult to cope with.

I can understand that it takes courage to seek counselling. I am a qualified counsellor based in St Austell, Cornwall. I work with individuals and a range of ages.  Due to coronavirus, I have had to make some changes to the way I work,  and so am offering counselling by video call or telephone and I also offer walk and talk therapy sessions (3 choices in the St Austell area).

My aim is to provide a safe, confidential space to help client’s explore, express and process what’s going on for them, which in turn will allow them to find solutions to cope or make effective changes. Forming and maintaining a trusting, therapeutic relationship is fundamental to my approach, and I believe my natural ability to be compassionate, calm and genuine will help to promote this. Also, I accept clients for who they are, showing respect, which means I am non-judgemental.

When it's difficult to put feelings/emotions into words, I encourage using creative resources to help connect and communicate, or we can consider what it looks and feels like visually or metaphorically. This is a way I can tailor counselling to the needs of the client and it can still be effective via video conferencing or telephone.

The benefits of walk and talk therapy are:

  • Research shows being outdoors impacts on good psychological health and mental well-being.
  • Exercise can help to reduce levels of stress, depression and anxiety.
  • An opportunity to be grounded in nature, focus on what draws your attention and using nature in a creative way.
  • A return to counselling Face 2 Face rather than online or telephone
  • ​I can offer 3 choices of location in the St Austell area

​All locations will be risk assessed. Alternative Zoom or telephone session offered should the weather be too hazardous.

I believe I have counselling experience in the following struggles: depression, anxiety, bullying, supporting people affected by cancer or a life changing medical diagnosis (having been a Macmillan Professional), relationship issues, life changes, gender identity issues, and trauma. Having trained with Cruse to become a bereavement volunteer, and trained with The Foundation for Infant Loss I have experience counselling through grief and loss. I have been an associate counsellor working for charities who support people affected by domestic abuse and violence.

I am a member of the BACP and follow their Ethical Framework.

If my profile resonates with you, I'd like to offer you a free 30 minute telephone or video call to check that we can work together.  If you telephone me, and I do not answer, please leave me a voicemail. If you are waiting on an email from me, please check your junk/spam folder.

I am also a Supervisor for counsellors or anyone in the helping profession - please see Supervisor profile

Member organisations

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.
