About me

I offer a collaborative approach to counselling, essentially person-centred but drawing from a wide range of approaches. My experience has taught me that there is no 'one size fits all' approach to therapy. An important part of the process is making sure that I am the right fit for you. For this reason I offer an initial (no obligation to commit) half price session for you to see if you feel comfortable with me. If you do then we will move forward at your pace and in a way that feels safe for you.

There are all sorts of reasons why people seek counselling, life is seriously hard at times and it can really help to talk to someone in confidence. No issue is too big or too small and there is no shame in seeking counselling. I work with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, childhood and adult trauma, grief, fear, loss, anger, disappointment and relationship issues. Counselling provides a safe, confidential space in which to express your thought and feelings. I can help you gain understanding and insight into a range of emotional issues.

I offer face-to face sessions in my private therapy room in Penryn, sessions last for 1 hour and take place weekly.

I also offer bespoke workshops for organisations, charities or any organised group. I have been a theatre maker for over 15 years and have developed an intuitive practice combining non-threatening (and often humorous) theatre exercises with group facilitation to bring into the open any conflicts, misunderstandings, confusions or difficult to voice feelings. I have also used this creative approach to enable open discussions and debate around difficult subjects such as sex, consent, exploitation and politics. Unravelling judgments (conscious & unconscious), assumptions and fears to cultivate empathy within groups, towards self, each other and service users (if applicable). Like all aspects of my therapeutic practice this work is contracted between participants with clearly set out boundaries. If this aspect of my work interests you please call or email me for a quote.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope I can help.

Call, text or email me and I will get back to you.

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.
