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.
