I'm a qualified counsellor and clinical supervisor from Cornwall. I have lived here all my life and I love being outdoors whatever the weather, even in our Cornish mizzle! 


Prior to qualifying as a counsellor I was an Early Years Professional and managed a nursery, but unfortunately a medical diagnosis forced me to re-evaluate life and my career. This in turn led me to access counselling and this is where I discovered an interest in knowing more about counselling and training. I realised that aspects of my core; compassion, care and nurturing were transferrable to another career.

Whilst training to be a counsellor I was successful in my application to be a Macmillan Professional, employed by a charity emotionally supporting people affected by brain tumours. This incredible opportunity allowed me to practise basic counselling skills and offer my innateness and lived experience to support others.


Whilst studying for a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling it is a requirement to complete 100 hours counselling.  During my studies I was aware how I developed an interest in grief and loss and so I also trained to be a bereavement volunteer for Cruse. My 100 placement hours were with Cruse and a local organisation Counsellors Together CIC. This gave me a breadth of experience in counselling people affected by a bereavement and loss, and those presenting with anxiety, worries, sadness, loneliness and depression. 

I qualified with a CPCAB Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling in 2017 and before opening my private practise I further studied a CPCAB Level 5 in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. The level 5 taught me the skills and knowledge to work more relationally with people who have more severe and complex mental health problems.
