About me

When choosing a counsellor it's more important that you find someone you feel totally comfortable with, rather than the particular theories that they use.

I use many different counselling theories. This enables me to work flexibly and creatively to meet the individual needs of my clients as I don't believe that a 'one size fits all'. This can all be discussed in our first session which is FREE OF CHARGE.

I have a private practice on Ashdown Forest, working with both individuals, couples and older children from 11 to 18 years. I work closely with GP's at a local surgery who regularly refer clients to me. Working as a couples counsellor and also with teenagers are areas of counselling that I'm particularly passionate about.

I also specialise in treating anxiety and panic attacks and I am in the process of launching a company web site to help people to overcome panic attacks. The treatment is unique and helps to address all aspects of Panic Attacks, whether it be physical, emotional or chemical.

I offer a caring, empathic and non-judgemental environment in which we can discuss any issue you may wish to bring. Together we can look at the choices available to you.
The counselling models that I work with include; Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I have worked as a couple counsellor for over 9 years. I also enjoy working with troubled young people and have provided counselling for local schools.

I have more than than 14 years of counselling experience working in private practice, at a GP surgery and at a clinic in the Harley Street area of London (The Hale Clinic).

I am also a qualified mediator, working with divorce mediation for couples, office/work desputes, neighbouhood disputes and family disputes.

I have broad experience of working with many different life issues but would say that my speciatist areas are; depression, anxiety and panic attacks, anger issues, eating disorders, teenagers and couple counselling.

I have researched the area of Anxiety and Panic Attacks for the past four years and am a partner of a company developing a website to help those who suffer with panic attacks.
