I offer an integrative and body-centred approach to counselling that addresses both immediate and specific issues as well as offering a space to explore more deeply held beliefs and malaise that undermine a sense of well-being & hinder personal growth.
I trained as an artist and have a background of working in mental health particularly outside of the medical model. I began training as a therapist in 1996. I discovered Art Psychotherapy and Jung both of which fired my passion for using our creative process to express the unspeakable and to access and release blocked energy. A Foundation in Art Psychotherapy and Core Process Psychotherapy enrich my practice as a counsellor trained in humanistic and transactional analysis models.
I continue to be curious about how we humans function and as I grow older I am finding a more mindful and reflective position on which to ponder this mystery. I walk on the moors and by the coast with my dog to find a balance in my life.
I see clients at my home and at the Cornwall Therapy Partnership in Bodmin.
