About me

Contact me for individual therapy (in person or online), couples counselling and supervision. As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor I believe that we all have the capacity to enjoy good mental health and well being. To achieve this we may need to talk to someone who is trained to help us make sense of things. If you are thinking about seeing a counsellor or psychotherapist it is important to find the right person to help you. For this reason I provide an assessment session on the telephone for which there is no charge. This gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have have about how I work and what you can expect.

In our frantic modern lives, where everyone seems to have an opinion, we rarely feel properly listened to or really heard by anyone else. Being able to talk to another person in confidence, in a safe place, who will not make any judgements about you or your situation can be really helpful and bring you relief.

I work hard to help people find ways to alleviate their distress as quickly as possible so that they can get on with living their lives in a more satisfying way. I am trained in ‘Brief and Time Focussed’ Counselling and commit to longer term therapy when necessary. I am a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, and work carefully to tailor the therapy for each person, finding the most helpful ways of working for each individual or couple.

You can contact me by text or email to make an appointment or call and leave a message to say when would be a good time for me to call you back.

My office is in Falmouth with free parking. It is 10 mins walk from Falmouth Moor and only 3 mins walk from the bus stop for the main routes between Falmouth - Penryn Campus - Truro, Camborne and Penzance.

The railway station is only 10 mins walk away.

I am available 7.30am-7.30pm on Monday to Thursday

My fee for individual sessions is £60. Couples £75. Sessions are for 60 minutes.

Supervision £75 for 1.5 hours.

I take regular supervision with a highly experienced Psychotherapist and TSTA (Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst) as is required by the BACP and other regulating bodies. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.

Life can be confusing and frustrating, it can feel pointless or very scary. Our problems can just keep getting us down, making us feel depressed and miserable, angry and unable to cope. We may be troubled by past experiences or unhelpful behaviours. We may experience acute anxiety, panic, trauma, loss, abandonment, violence or feel trapped in a situation not of our own making. Sometimes we can be angry with ourselves or somebody else. We can often feel ashamed, humiliated or even that our problems are too trivial to talk about. However big or small your problem seems, it helps to talk with someone who is trained to listen, to help you make sense of it and to help you make the changes you need to make.

Member organisations

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.
