I am a fully qualified, insured and registered MBACP Integrative Psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Callington. I work with both adults and young people and offer a flexible approach to counselling/psychotherapy and working from a peaceful log cabin offer a private and relaxing space for my face-to-face service. I also offer counselling via telephone or Online via Zoom, Skype or email.
I work using a Connections Model combining Person Centred, Gestalt, Trans-personal and CBT theories and techniques. I use this model because I like the way mix use of theories and techniques. I also feel that while Person Centred counselling should be at the heart of the working relationship, I like the way that Gestalt, CBT and Trans-personal techniques work well together in enhancing the Person-Centred work in a more holistic way connecting the mind, soul, emotion and body.
I think sometimes anyone can be emotionally vulnerable and this can lead to feeling alone in experiencing these anxieties or fears which can often make it hard to trust in the counselling process and that it takes compassion, commitment and patience to develop a good therapeutic relationship and I believe I have that compassion, commitment and patience offering my clients a safe space to focus on their own well-being and encouraging them in making their own decisions and regaining control of their own lives.
I offer both long and short term counselling as I believe this should be tailored to meet each individual persons needs.
Student discounts and concessionary rates available.

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.
