About me

I am a qualified counsellor, working privately from my own home in Hastings. I have worked for a leading mental health charity, providing individual support to people who have recently survived a suicide attempt. I have experience of facilitating anger management groups and seeing students from a local college. I also have additional bereavement training and have worked for two bereavement services.
I work with adults and young people on a one-to-one basis and can provide both short- and long-term counselling. I help clients to find ways of changing or coping with the issues they bring, such as - anxiety, bereavement, loss, stress, separation, life changes, fertility issues, caring responsibilities, low self-esteem, illness, relationship problems, work issues and depression.
My aim is to empower clients to live their lives in a more satisfying way, with greater confidence and self-awareness, so that they can make any changes they feel they want to.

Training, qualifications & experience

My diploma is in Humanistic, Integrative Counselling. I work mainly in a person-centred way but use techniques from other approaches where they will be helpful to the client. I am also a qualified bereavement counsellor, having trained and worked with Cruse.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, am subject to their complaints procedure and bound by their ethical framework.
I have full insurance and receive regular supervision.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
