What you might like to know
As a BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, and a Counselling Supervisor, I am available for individual, couple or small group work from my peaceful, secluded practice in Pentewan near St Austell.
Appreciation of Difference
In our work together, I hope that you will feel respected and fully accepted, and that you benefit from my commitment towards a deep understanding of how your experience impacts upon you as a unique individual.
I was born and brought up near Mevagissey and have a deep love and understanding of the heritage complexities of our county. Following College, I moved out of county to train and work as a teacher in Southampton. There, I experienced multicultural living and the wealth of difference that a sea-port town has to offer.
I returned to Cornwall to bring up my four sons and to be at hand for my aging parents. During this time I have retrained in Counselling/Psychotherapy and have worked for local charities, in private practice with self-referring clients, the NHS, Student Services on the University Campus and for National Employee Assistance Programmes delivering counselling to some of our major organisations and businesses.
Working towards positive outcomes
Counselling and Psychotherapy can be used interchangeably as they describe differing levels of psychological process. I encourage clients to identify the change that they would like to effect in their lives, prior to a first session, so that we can contract in working towards a positive outcome at which ever level feels appropriate.
