About me

I am a Person-centred counsellor.  I offer a non-judgemental presence, with warmth and empathy. In a confidential space I will listen deeply to you; together we will explore your situation and I will reflect what I notice.  In this way you may gain greater clarity and insight, finding new ways to move forward in your life.

I will support you in accessing your own resources to bring about healing and change.  My focus is always on gently encouraging the growth of self acceptance and compassion, as I know the powerful change that this can bring.

There is a therapeutic power in the relationship between client and counsellor; it is important that you find the right person for you. If you think you would like to work with me you can phone or email to arrange an initial session.  In this session we will talk about the kind of support you are looking for and you can decide if you would like to continue working with me.  If so we can arrange weekly or fortnightly sessions, for the long or short term.  

My sessions are one hour, face to face, in a peaceful room near the centre of Penzance.

I am a registered member of BACP and abide by their ethical framework.  I have regular supervision and am committed to the on-going process of learning and developing, both personally and professionally.
