About me

Anxious? Depressed? Lonely? Come and talk about it. Together we can start a positive change.

I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor and I can offer you a safe place to talk about your concerns. I use the person centered approach. It is an evidence based therapy where healing happens in a warm, honest and trusting relationship between the therapist and the client. I will never judge you and I will display unconditional positive regard and empathy, whatever issues you might be having. I also offer my clients creative tools to work with: writing, art, role play and nature walks.

Our conversations are confidential and I follow the ethical guidelines of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have helped people struggling with anxiety, depression, loss, post traumatic stress disorder, relationship problems, self-esteem issues and more. I really care about my clients and I am dedicated to helping them – and you.

Worried about climate change? I am an environmental activist and I am specializing in eco-therapy, climate grief and psychology of hope.

Feeling rootless or different? I have a multicultural background. I know how it feels to belong to a minority and start your life in a new place and in a new country. I offer counselling also in Finnish, Swedish and German.

My private therapy room is in Perranwell, with good train connections from Truro (7 minutes), Penryn (6 minutes) and Falmouth (15 minutes). Free parking. Online (Skype) or telephone counselling is also available.

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.
