My main specialism is the Person-Centred approach, but I also use other techniques in certain situations depending on what's right for you. I aim to tailor the therapeutic experience to your specific needs, choosing the type, style, and techniques that work best for you.
I am very compassionate, kind and caring and I consider myself to be warm, friendly and approachable in my demeanor. I believe that every person deserves to be heard and to have their feelings validated. I am a fantastic listener and I find it easy to empathise. I offer a safe and nurturing relationship where you can talk freely and openly without judgements and assumptions.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor. I've been successfully counselling clients in the Newquay, Bodmin, and Truro areas and facilitating their self-growth. I have experience working in various agency settings in Cornwall, and I have worked with both young and mature adults from a variety of backgrounds, and I have dealt with a wide range of complex difficulties.
I am a member of the B.A.C.P and I am committed to ongoing training and personal development. My work is overseen by a clinical supervisor and I follow the principles of the ethical framework. Before I became a therapist I worked in local government for 8 years and I also ran my own car garage business.
