My Approach

Mindfulness based Core Process psychotherapy

About Me

I have been practicing as a Core Process Psychotherapist since 1996 and have been a staff member at the Karuna Institute, on Dartmoor since 2000. This has involved teaching the Core Process psychotherapy MA and Kum Nye meditation retreats and training. My psychotherapy and supervision practice is based in Par, Cornwall. Additionally, I have also taught in Japan.

My diverse experience has included specializing in working with eating disorders for an eating disorders charity, a variety of mental health issues through the NHS, Social Services and private practice. I undertake work with couples and have also worked with parents, young people and children though NCH children charity.

My practice offers a safe and supportive space for clients to explore issues and reconnect with their health and well being though mindfulness and deep listening. I offer short and long term work and a free initial consultation.
I am a mother of two adult children and I enjoy the beautiful county I live in.
