About me

I understand that searching out and starting therapy can be a very daughting experience but I am here to make you feel supported and safe throughout the process. I welcome all questions or enquiries regardless of how trivial you might worrry they are. Whatever the reason that brings you to counselling, my aim, through working in a non-judgemental and caring way, is for us to explore whatever you want together. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as a Level 5 Person-centred Counsellor.This approach is about creating a place for you to feel heard, without fear of judgment or rejection.I can offer a quiet space for you to feel safe to reflect and explore how you feel, so we can discover what is best for you.

I can hold a space for you, to begin a deeper understanding of yourself, to empower you to take steps towards brighter days. I do not offer advice but instead will follow your narrative, whilst being there in an empathic, supportive role. I understand the importance of working at your pace and won't push you to talk about anything you don't feel able to yet.

I have several years of experience working with adolescents and adults, which includes issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, body dysmorphia, trauma and relationship problems. With the recent pandemic so many people have struggled with their mental health, if you are too then you are not alone and counselling can really help support and give you understanding on how to cope and move forward.

If you would like to talk further or find out more please get in touch.

I can offer flexibility as I work online, or on the telephone or face to face sessions, held at Cornwall Clinical Pyschology Therapy Centre in Hayle,whatever feels more comfortable for you. 

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.
