I am an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. During the period of time when I belonged to BACP, I achieved Senior Accreditation as a supervisor and Accreditation as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am based in Hayle in West Cornwall. I have training in Gestalt psychotherapy and Person Centred counselling. Gestalt is an integrative therapy and provides an opportunity to increase awareness of yourself and your relationships.
I am also an EMDR UK and Europe Accredited Therapist.
I work with the belief that you know how to support yourself and how to solve your own problems, but sometimes you may get stuck in an unhelpful pattern and need someone else to help you to get out of it. Sometimes this may need a cognitive approach, sometimes a creative one, it depends on you.
I offer long term and short term therapy and personal development work. I enjoy working creatively and am able to support you when you are vulnerable and to challenge you when you are stuck.
I also provide supervision for counsellors, psychotherapists, and other health care professionals.
