About me

I am an energetic and compassionate therapist in my 30s. I view counselling and psychotherapy as a dynamic process, created between the two of us.  Generally speaking, my approach to psychotherapy is to play an active part. I intervene, I reflect, I share theory, and I ask questions. I am relaxed, straightforward and non-judgemental.

I am passionate about what I do and feel strongly that although psychotherapy can at times be emotionally challenging, it can also be exhilarating and inspiring.

I am always open to questions, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you would to know.


Who I work with:

I work with adults, young people and couples. I also run a low cost therapy group for those suffering from chronic illness, and a support group for survivors of abusive relationships.

I am also experienced in working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self Esteem issues
  • Relationship issues
  • Childbood Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Work related issues
  • Boundary Issues
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Carers of those who misuse substances
  • Existential issues
  • Grief
  • Divorce
  • PTSD
  • Attachment Disorders


What to do next:

You may get in contact via whatever medium feels most comfortable for you. At this point you can ask me any questions you may have, or simply book an initial appointment straight away. I offer a free initial session, so that we are able to meet, and get a feel for one another before deciding whether to work together. There is absolutely no obligation to carry on working together after this.

I work from offices in Ringmer and Brighton.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained to work with a wide range of issues. I have a special interest in working with those suffering from chronic health conditions; eating disorders; individuals currently, or who have been, involved in abusive relationships; and trauma.

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis (TA) psychotherapy. Integral to TA are the beliefs that:

1) people all have the same inherent worth;

2) that people can think for themselves, and therefore, are able to take responsibility for their decisions; and

3) that people can change.

These fundamental beliefs result in a non-judgemental approach, focused around empowering the individual to improve their lives as and how they see fit. I work within a humanistic and integrative framework, and as such, tailor the work to the individual depending on what they bring to psychotherapy.


​​I am a member of the BACP, as well as UKATA, EATA, and ITAA. I also have experience in Gestalt theory, Existential Psychotherapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.


As well as working in private practice, I have previously worked as a volunteer counsellor for the NHS Criminal Reduction Initiative (CRI) service, 'Patched', and am now a volunteer relationship counsellor for the charity 'Pavilion'.


All of my work is supervised by a qualified and UKCP registered supervisor.
