I became a therapist through having a good experience of therapy myself and deciding “I want to do that!” As I did my training I observed my trainer and decided “I want to do that!” I became a supervisor of practitioners in exactly the same way.
I am committed to the therapeutic relationship being both the crucible and the vehicle for change; I seek to engage in a co-created, respectful and supportive human relationship; this is th optimum environment for my clients to connect with or develop any resource they need to have the positive outcome they want.
I support my clients to come to terms with what they have experienced and to become more and more able to trust and utilise their own natural problem solving ability. I observe that their lives become more and more manageable, more comfortable, lighter and more fun! Life is richer with many more possibilities and there is a feeling of more freedom.
I live and practice in Reawla, near Hayle, Cornwall as well as working as a therapist, supervisor and consultant by Skype with people from all over the world.
I enjoy and feel supported by our beautiful environment, in particular the many sacred places in West Penwith and its cliff and beach walks.
As well as enjoying exploring the land, I gain huge pleasure from sailing with my husband around the Helford Estuary and further afield. I have crossed the Channel many times and sail to the Scilly Isles twice a year.
