A Contemporary  Practice

Consideration of how our Mind and Body respond to contemporary life
 I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to address a broad range of issues. 
For professional support in experiencing your voice, and how that might resonate.

"Talking therapies are a method of treatment that help people understand themselves  their relationships, and how they behave in the world. Psychotherapy is based on the idea that we are frequently motivated to act by impulses that we don’t recognize because they originate in our unconscious. These unconscious conflicts can create negative feelings – emotions such as unhappiness, anxiety, or depression – which can be expressed in many ways, including self-destructive behavior, or difficulties with personal relationships or work" 

In your sessions our conversation is contained within previously agreed boundaries and is entirely confidential. One or two sessions a week are usually sufficient. Emerging new ideas and  discovery oflatent memories are the key to better awareness, understanding and self managing of your wellbeing. They can be transformative and potentially life changing

A member of The Society for Social and Critical Psychoanalysis (an organisation that promotes and fosters psychoanalytic thinking and practice in Cornwall and the SW region). I am registered (No. 2011167925)  and accredited with the UKCP. I offer a confidential space to talk in the heart of Penryn, Cornwall, on-line is also available together with telephone appointments.

Initial consultation is free after which I offer a sliding sessional fee.

Informed by research around our nervous system, Polyvagal theory, CBT and DBT my practice offers the opportunity of exploration and engagement with our epistemological drive.

From working with young people suffering from anxiety, depression and loneliness for example to those seeking clarification of how their lives have been lived, I help find space and time to  encounter and care for your soul in a non judgemental, natural setting. We are all unique and your therapy should reflect each and every facet of life.
