I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with a passion and drive to help and empower others. I am based in the Falmouth/Penryn area.
I have trained and worked within the areas of domestic and sexual abuse as well counselling for depression, anxiety, bereavement, carer support, discrimination, family/relationship issues, climate grief, low self-esteem, self-harm and trauma.
I work integratively, tailoring techniques to fit my clients. These techniques aspire from Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic, Attachment-based, Mindfulness and Systemic approaches.
I offer individual, couples and family therapy and I also offer positive psychology with the aim to support people to further develop into more fulfilment and happiness.
I believe that by working together we can achieve more self-awareness by understanding your roots, aspirations and improve self-management, social awareness and relationships. My offer of therapy is a warm, non-judgmental and supportive approach providing a safe space for exploration and growth. I like to focus on strengths and search for constructive contributions towards solutions. We can analyse behaviour patterns and beliefs and together discover new perspectives to open up more options. Explorations can include searching for meanings and how to live in line with your values.
I provide a space for you, guided by you for a journey of clarity, acceptance and freedom.
You can make that first step with a simple call or email. You have the opportunity to ask any questions and if you decide to proceed we can arrange a time for our first session.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
