About me

I am a qualified cyber therapist, able to work with you online, through email, live chat or secure video link, as well as offering telephone and face-to-face counselling. I specialise in time-focused therapy as well as open-ended work, so if you are unsure about committing to long term counselling, time-focused may be for you. Your initial consultation is free of charge, and we can decide together what will best meet your needs.

You may be experiencing difficult feelings following a recent event
You may have difficult feelings that have built up over a period of time
You may have a particular issue that you want to explore, or something you want to change, but don't know how.
You may just feel like you need to talk to someone who won't judge you.

I offer a creative approach, responding to what you need, and working with you to help you lead a more satisfying life. I believe deeply in our ability to make changes in our lives and in ourselves.

Training, qualifications & experience

I worked for some time in Art and Design education, before deciding on changing careers, and following my desire to help people improve their lives on a one-to-one basis.

I was awarded a Diploma in Education Coaching by Newcastle College, and followed that by studying for a coaching diploma with the Coaching Academy.   I may use some of my coaching experience and skills if it will be helpful to you. I then achieved a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a three year course run by Chichester Counselling Services, and accredited by the BACP. I learnt to work psychodynamically, helping people to understand how their past experiences can affect their lives. Since then, I have qualified to work in a variety of ways, to adapt to the needs of the person. I can work in a more problem-solving way with you, or using creative processes, such as Art, or explore mindfulness techniques. I qualified as an online therapist, studying a course that allowed me to expand my work to reach people who may find face-to-face counselling difficult in some way.

My qualifications are:

MA- Art and Design Education

Diploma in Education Coaching

Certificate in Personal Performance Coaching

Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling

Certificate in Time-Focussed Counselling

Certificate in Client Assessment

Certificate in Online Counselling(Cybertherapy)

I am registered with the BACP and am working towards accreditation.

I am based in West Sussex (Chichester) and Finistere (Carhaix-Plouguer)

We can discuss what you hope to gain from counselling, and whether time-focussed or open-ended work would meet your needs better. By the end of the consultation you should be able to decide if you would like to continue with me for counselling. We can then make appointments that will suit us both, using whichever form of communication works best for you.
