Individual and Couple Counselling
I work with individuals and couples, offering an opportunity to talk in confidence about any problems or difficulties you might be facing. I have more than 10 years experience in private practice. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the counselling I offer.
My counselling room is in St James' Clubhouse, Seaford. A two minute walk from Seaford train station and local buses. Wheelchair accessible.
People come for counselling for many different reasons. Sometimes, what is happening in your life can feel overwhelming. For example, you may feel challenged by current problems or stuck with something which has been troubling you for years. You may have experienced a sudden life change or loss.I will work with you on any issues you choose to explore. My aim is to create an environment where you feel accepted, respected and safe to talk about whatever you need to without feeling judged.Talking through what is going on for you can be a very powerful way to gain clarity and feel supported.
Sometimes a relationship that used to work well can turn into something where both partners feel disconnected and unhappy. Often partners find themselves getting into the same arguments again and again. I help couples to notice the negative patterns and cycles that they get into and to work out how to change what is happening and develop new ways of interacting.
I meet you together as a couple for the initial session, then see each partner individually for one session before a series of between 8 and 20 joint sessions.
I offer supervision to qualified and student counsellors. Please email for more information.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
