I am an experienced, professionally trained and qualified counsellor based in Eastbourne. I offer a relaxed atmosphere where you will be able to examine your thoughts and feelings without being judged and where I will help you to find your own way at your own pace.
I believe the relationship we build together is important so that you can to safely explore any painful or difficult subjects you are unable, or do not wish, to discuss with anybody else. I have particular experience in working with people struggling with trauma, loss and bereavement. I also believe that everybody, given the right conditions, has the desire and the ability to grow and heal themselves. I integrate into my person-centred approach my training in Transactional Analysis and Gestalt, among others, which may help with your process and help me to provide you with support which is as unique as you are.
In addition to traditional talking therapy and if you choose to, we can work creatively, using objects, stones, painting and sand tray. This often helps if you have difficulty expressing your thoughts or feelings in words.
I am on the accredited register of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow their ethical guidelines. I obtained my Diploma in Counselling from the Wealden Psychology Institute in Crowborough which has an established tradition of developing highly skilled practitioners.
My management background in the corporate business sector in London has given me valuable insight into the challenges and issues we all face at times in the modern world.
