I have been in practice as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1995 when I completed a diploma at Cornwall College. I am also medically qualified and four years ago I retired as a General Practitioner having worked in Cornwall for a number of years. I am a senior accredited member of BACP. In 2003 I was awarded a MSc. in Integrative Psychotherapy from the University of Middlesex. Since then I have done training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Couples Therapy and also for a diploma in Supervision.
I work in a relational and psychodynamic way but am mindful of the results of continuing research in neuroscience. I believe very much in the power and ability of people to find their own solutions to the problems and difficulties which they may find confronting them.
I work from home and parking is free and available.
