As a non-judgmental, person-centred counsellor I provide a safe, confidential and supportive environment where you can talk, express and reflect on any difficulties and feelings that you may find difficult to share with others.
I work flexibly in order to engage and maintain a positive relationship with my clients and use a variety of approaches as appropriate to your needs or issues
I see clients individually, in couples or as families in order to enhance their relationships and to meet their needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Graduate Diploma (Counselling) from the Australian College of Applied Psychology and a Graduate Diploma (Psychology) from Melbourne University. My undergraduate degree is a BA (Hons) Public Administration from De Montfort University (UK).
My Graduate Diploma in Counselling was accredited by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) which gave me eligibility for membership.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and joined to demonstrate my commitment to professional standards and to continue to further enhance my practice. The BACP Register is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
I have over 7 years’ experience in planning and delivering effective counselling, case management and support interventions for children, young people and their families. My clients have had multiple and complex needs including trauma, grief and loss, relationship difficulties, family separation, family violence, alcohol and other drugs abuse and managing life with a mental illness.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Anger management
- Asperger's syndrome
- Attachment disorder
- Child related issues
- Domestic violence
- Family issues
- Gender dysphoria
- Hearing voices
- Learning difficulties
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Other areas of counselling I deal with
- Relationships and Parenting – any ages
I have an interest in looking at the way attachment affects relationships and how parenting and family issues can affect the couple relationship and how this in turn affects the family system.
- Counselling Young People aged 10 to 25 years
I work individually with young people to provide guidance in a relatable and understandable way. I have an interest in working with young people to help them develop and recognise healthy relationships. This also specifically includes supporting young people around issues concerning sexuality and other issues concerning the GLBTI communities.
- Mental health issues – 12 years and over
I have a particular interest and experience in working with clients to help them manage life with either their own or a family member's mental illness, particularly anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.

I am a person-centred counsellor and I also draw on other approaches such as solution focussed, brief therapy and systemic or family therapy for which I have undertaken training.
Approaches I use:
Traditionally counselling takes place once a week for 50 min. I always work at the client’s pace and I generally leave the length of the counselling relationship up to the client. A person may wish to see me for only one session, whilst others may continue to see me for much longer.
I appreciate that finding the right counsellor is important, we can discuss what you are looking to achieve with counselling, and discover whether you feel able and comfortable for us to work together. I work in a collaborative way with you to identify potential causes of your difficulties and to develop strategies that can help you live life more fully.
We’ll set goals together and work together towards achieving them. Regular reviews and checks will make sure counselling is on track.
All counselling sessions are held in easily accessible professional suites in the central Brighton.
