About me

I am a Registered Accredited Therapist with the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and am DBS (Enhanced) cleared. I have worked as a therapist with clients who have faced many and varied personal difficulties (see areas of work) for over ten years. As a private practitioner, I work with clients on a one-to-one basis in a gentle, respectful and professional manner. I pride myself in always striving to behave in a way that is congruent with my integrity, offering individuals the opportunity to explore any difficulties they might be experiencing in a private and comfortable environment. The work at Atlantic Counselling Cornwall allows for our work together to unfold at a pace that is suitable for you in an empathetic, warm and non-judgemental way.

In addition, I have worked with people who want to better manage their eating and increase their level of daily activity but find it difficult to do so, and with elite athletes, including professional footballers, national and international athletes within various sports working with the human aspects of individuals often neglected at elite sport level. I began my professional life as a Physical Training Instructor in the Army, and so have seen human behaviour and performance under the most extreme of conditions. I achieved a First Class Honours Degree in Psychology at the University of Kent and immediately followed this with a PhD in Psychology. I have trained many counsellors to degree and Masters level. I also run CPD courses for qualified counsellors.
