About me

People seek emotional support for many reasons such as relationship issues, anxiety, depression, family issues, work related problems, separation & divorce, childhood experiences, trauma, the list is endless so whatever is worrying or distressing you right now it really is worth talking to a professional. Counselling can help you feel differently to how you may be feeling right now.

I am qualified & experienced in working with adults, children & groups & have worked in a GP surgery, charities for adults who experienced childhood trauma, schools & with children in care in addition to my private practice.

Listening to you, building a therapeutic relationship with you & establishing what you want & need from therapy is at the heart of how I work. We are all unique & respond to different methods & as a counsellor I work with your needs as an individual rather than adopting a 'one size fits all' approach. I can offer creative methods of working for those who like to or wish to try expressing feelings in a creative way.

I have more than 15 years experience of helping adults who have experienced childhood trauma & abuse. If you are thinking that now may be the time to talk to someone about childhood issues, I am here to offer help & support.

As a counsellor I will not offer advice or make judgement: I will help you, the expert on your life to find a way forward.

My main office is in a beautiful, peaceful location (but close to A23 for good access) with free parking & is easily reached by car from Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Hassocks, Horsham, Cowfold, Billingshurst, Crawley, Shoreham, Brighton & Hove.

For clients wishing to use public transport I can offer appointments in Brighton close to excellent train or bus routes.

I work one to one with adults, children & also offer group therapy.

I offer short & long term therapy.

I also run therapeutic groups for adults who have experienced childhood abuse. These groups are run for either women or for men separately & run for 12 weeks. Group therapy can be especially helpful both in terms of cost as it is less expensive than individual therapy but importantly it can be really beneficial to work with other people with similar issues. It can positively help reduce feelings of isolation.

Please contact me if you would like to discuss joining the next group.

As a member of the BACP I work within their ethical framework for good practice.
