About me

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have a person-centred approach and believe that compassion, acceptance and trust are essential for successful therapy. You are the expert on yourself and with skilled help I believe you can achieve an amazing difference in how you deal with the trauma and unhappiness of problems in your daily life.

I provide a quiet and confidential space in the centre of Falmouth, where together we can explore the issues that you have to deal with in life and help you find resolution through compassion and personal exploration. For many, immersion in nature gives them the connection they need to access their natural selves and to see new perspectives. For those clients I offer outdoor walking and talking therapy in the Falmouth area.

Talking does make a difference, where the listener is empathic, non-judgemental and free from the influences of personal and work relationships. I offer a safe environment where problems can be discussed confidentially and openly.

I have many years experience of providing emotional and pastoral support to adults and young people in workplace, educational and home settings. I am also familiar with supporting those who may have a range of special needs. I have a warm, open and supportive nature, with a professional approach. I abide by the BACP code of ethics.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
