ABOUT ME

I am a Counsellor based in Cornwall.

I came to counselling after a life time of work with the emergency services and prior to that the military. I believe in the client's Innate ability to heal given the right environment and thereaputic relationship.

I offer Empathy, Honesty, Balance, Resilience, Respect and my ability to provide a truly safe place for us to work together in a mutually agreed way.

 

WHY GENTLE WAY

Gentle Way is a direct translation of Judo

The smallest of movement can trigger the Greatest of Insight.

As my Judo developed my understanding of balance and resistance developed.

As my TRUST grew I developed the confidence to trust in other's.

As my anxiety about falling reduced  I realised the fall was never as bad as expected, I felt safe to explore and learn.

I began to trust in myself.
