About me

I am a trauma informed Integrative Counsellor, Embodied Psychotherapist, Pesso Boyden Practitioner and Yoga Teacher. My private practice is situated in a warm, welcoming space near Penzance in Cornwall. I also work with clients on Zoom.

My work is relational, experiential, creative, embodied and practical in many parts with a holistic blending of somatic practices, breath work and conventional talking therapy. Each session is carefully adapted to meet the unique needs of my client.

I have dedicated the last 14 years to working alongside a diverse range of conditions and challenges supporting individuals through trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, domestic violence, abuse, limiting unhelpful patterns, behaviours and neuro-diversity. I have also assisted those with physically limiting conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease and Parkinson’s.

In addition to my private practice, I collaborate with my local council to support young people who have experienced traumatic events in their childhood. I also volunteer as a counsellor at West Cornwall’s Women’s Aid.

Further information

The process is always collaborative. We start with talking and I keep things flexible and tailor-made to suit individual needs. I have a variety of tools I draw from and the process is always client-led. We may just talk, work with the imagination, breath, embodiment practices or visual prompts. It all depends on what you need, and what feels right and useful for you in the moment.

I believe very strongly that we can’t separate body and mind, because they are constantly interacting – sometimes in harmony but often not. During a session with me, we will give them equal attention in order to promote awareness and overall balance.
