About me

I offer one-to-one counselling in a private and confidential setting. Appointments can be flexible during the week. Counselling can be short-term, to manage a specific problem, or longer term open-ended work for those who wish to explore further and gain more insight. If you are feeling low, or sense that something just does not feel right, counselling can provide a safe environment, where you can talk privately and in confidence.

I see people of all ages and from all types of background, suffering from all sorts of issues, including anxiety, depression, loss, bereavement and relationship issues.

I believe that counselling offers people the opportunity to talk about their feelings, to explore possible underlying causes to the difficulties that they are currently experiencing and helps foster any changes that people may wish to make. It is a process which aims to help you reach your own decisions and make your own choices in life. It is not about giving advice, making decisions for you or imposing opinions on you.

I trained to be a Counsellor once I had a family of my own, previously working in the TV and film industry.  I worked in a Children and Family Centre for 6 years supporting families with all aspects of parenting, and worked in a primary school as a counsellor supporting parents and children with any issues they may be having.

I have 16 years of counselling experience working with teenagers and adults of all ages.  

I offer you a caring, empathic and non-judgemental environment in which together we can discuss any issue you may wish to bring and can help you to facilitate any changes that you may wish to make.

I am also a qualified Supervisor and can offer supervision to other counsellors.

I usually see people in Forest Row or Horley but at the moment all sessions take place over the phone or via Zoom. Please feel free to get in touch if there is any other information I can help you with.

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Supervision

I am a fully trained Supervisor with a Post Qualification Diploma in Supervision, and can offer supervision to counsellors, psychotherapists and those in other professions.  My supervision modality is integrative.  I believe supervision to be a collaborative relationship based on trust and equality, so is both client and supervisee centred.  Supervision is about learning and growth, as well as a being a place to celebrate success and challenging ourselves.  I find my own supervision so supportive and aim to provide the same for others! Please feel free to contact me for further information.
