About me

Life is rarely straightforward and it's not always easy to work things out on your own. I offer a safe, supportive environment where you can explore what's important for you. Psychotherapy can provide a space to slow down and take a bit of time to look at what's happening. From there we can start to develop awareness of how we think, feel and respond to relationships and the situations we find ourselves in.

Sessions are available in Plymouth and Launceston. I'm accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP Accred.) and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Reg.) I have a post-graduate degree in Psychotherapy, and have experience in agency work and private practice.  My practice is fully insured, GDPR compliant and I adhere to UKCP & BACP ethical frameworks.

Anything you bring to therapy is confidential, my work is professionally supervised but clients are never identified in supervision. Get in touch to discuss what you need and arrange a free initial consultation to see if I'm the right therapist for you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a five-year training in Mindfulness-Based Core Process Psychotherapy at the Karuna Institute graduating with an MA. I am UKCP accredited and a registered member of the BACP (MBACP Reg) Aside from my training, I have several years of experience in mental health and a research background in psychology and neuroscience.

I work with a very broad range of issues including depression and anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, grief and loss, gender and sexuality, mental health.

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.
