About me

"Stepping towards a Healthy Emotional Wellbeing"

Hi, A warm welcome to my profile. I provide a safe and confidential space dependent upon your needs. For example, counselling can be a way of finding alternative coping strategies to deal with problems when our usual ones are not sufficient, and a chance to explore how we repeat patterns of behaviour that may not be helpful to us. Sometimes, when we have difficult worries or problems we can feel angry, upset, confused or feel really down, and talking to a counsellor about these difficulties can bring some relief.

I am an accredited psychotherapeutic therapist and my approach is integrative. This means I believe that no single therapeutic approach is enough to address the individual needs of the client. Therefore, I integrate different therapeutic techniques, as well as working with the dynamics of the counselling relationship.

I have over 12 years experience as a counsellor, and I work with young people and adults, both in my private practice and in education. For 7 years, I offered a confidential counselling service to students and tutors at Plumpton College and more recently worked in primary and secondary school settings for a charity called CXK, as an Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner.

As well as this I see individuals and couples in my private practice and work in Crawley Down Health Centre one day a week and Tunbridge Wells on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

I provide a high quality confidential short and long term counselling practice dependent upon your needs.

I am an accredited member of BACP and work in accordance with their code of ethics and practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

When I work

I work flexible hours and offer evening appointments Monday - Thursday.

Further information

Initially, I will invite you to discuss and assess your situation and what you may hope to gain from the counselling. Together, we can both decide whether counselling is right for you, if we can both work together and agree an appropriate plan of therapy for you.

Counselling sessions are usually weekly and last 50 minutes for individual clients and an 1 hr for couples counselling, at a mutually agreed time.
