About me

I am an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor and Focusing Therapist. I have a private practice in Lewes, East Sussex and I also work as an IAPT Counsellor within the N.H.S .

There are many different aspects to counselling but for me it encompasses the gentle art of self acceptance and self empowerment. As such it helps us to deal effectively with difficult and painful events in life which we all face from time to time.

As a person centred trained counsellor I aim to create a trusting, safe, open and supportive relationship in which to explore, in confidence one's uniqueness and complexity.

I see my role as facilitating you in having a better relationship with yourself which will enhance your other relationships. My belief is that we gain a greater sense of well-being if we integrate those parts of ourselves we find uncomfortable and tend to ignore or deny. My experience has shown me that those parts of ourselves we find difficult to acknowledge, potentially offer us the greatest gifts and insights.

I work with couples/relationships and individuals offering a wide variety of therapeutic approaches. Counselling is a collaborative way of working which enables us to explore openly, creatively and with a spirit of curiosity what it is to be you.

Contact me to see how counselling can help you manage, more effectively, the challenges in your life.
