About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor specialising in Anxiety and Depression. My approach is firstly to help you identify any coping strategies that might give you some symptom relief in the short-term. From there, we can work together to unravel and make sense of what might be at the root of your anxiety and / or depression and to help you gain the resources you need to make positive, permanent change.

What to expect

I am a humanistic therapist, which means that I do not give advice or claim to have a magic wand that can 'fix you'. My approach is to work alongside you, facilitating you to find your own answers and providing you with a safe, accepting space in which to explore what's really going on for you.

​Some people find the experience of simply telling their story, and being truly heard, deeply therapeutic in itself. However, therapy is a lot more than just being listened to and may include:

  • ​​Exploring the root causes of your anxiety and depression
  • Making sense of past experiences and how they may be affecting the choices you are making in the present
  • Identifying any triggers and developing coping strategies
  • Learning some simple psychological concepts to help you to better understand yourself and view your life through a different lens
  • Challenging yourself to try out new ways of managing your life and your relationships
  • Identifying any immediate, practical steps you could take to improve your mood and outlook in the short-term

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a UKATA Diploma in Transactional Analysis (TA) Practice and Certificates in Counselling Skills and Counselling Studies. I have completed 3 years of Advanced Clinical Training in TA Psychotherapy and 2 years of counselling training.

In addition to my private practice, I also work for a low-cost counselling service in Hastings and am a volunteer counsellor at a local school.
