My approach and belief is in restoring awareness through counselling and psychotherapy, and that it is possible for everybody.
We can reliably say that throughout time people have experienced perplexing and challenging periods in their lives - and that some form of guidance from a person outside of the family or friends circle, can often provide the support and answers that are missing and needed.
The integrity of my work includes strict confidentiality in all communications. Phone messages and emails will receive a punctual response (with possible exception of short holiday periods).
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a free initial appointment.

I follow the Code of Ethics as set out by the UKCP. Confidentiality and trust are professional givens as far as I am concerned and, I believe, at the heart of any productive and fulfilling therapeutic work and relationship.
I have a lifelong commitment to my own on-going learning process, both professional and personal development. On the Background and Qualifications page you will find more information on how I work.
Appointments can be arranged from Monday to Friday, daytimes or evenings.
I offer both short term and long term counselling for individuals and couples needing relationship help and support. Sessions can be held in person in Cornwall or online.
Individuals: £60 for 50 minutes.
Couples: £80 for 60 minutes.
Concession fees are available if necessary, please contact me to discuss.
6 days notice is required and does not incur any extra charge.
When a session is booked weekly, and you cancel within that week, the full fee is due unless I can offer you an alternative day and time in the same week. I will always do my best to accommodate.
Bi-monthly sessions: If for any reason the session needs to be changed or cancelled a 7 day notice is required in order to be able to re-book without charge.
I offer an open minded and honest approach to guiding couples in relationship. I encourage a fresh awareness of tolerance and kindness where it might have become lost.
The playwright Arthur Miller wrote: “Living together is the most difficult thing there is because it is about constant tolerance and forgiveness”.
