About me

If you've found yourself here reading this, aware of needing support through a difficult time or wanting to be free of those things in our past that keep us stuck, welcome and please do listen to your own innate wisdom and trust that things can change for the better. 

I specialise in working with Loss and can help you through the profound and life-changing grief after the death of a loved one. 

As life is constantly changing, we experience many different losses throughout our lifetime. It may be a 'living loss' that you need support through such as a significant relationship ending, a health diagnosis or age-related changes. In this busy world, having the opportunity to acknowledge and explore these losses in a safe, non-judgemental and professional space can be a true gift to yourself and your future. 

My constant hope is to offer you the opportunity to work safely and compassionately on the parts of your life and your self that are causing the most difficulty so you can move away from pain and towards a more peaceful you.

Training, qualifications & experience

 My working life began in education, I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Music and Art History and taught the cello privately and for East Sussex County Council in Primary and Secondary schools. I also taught English as a foreign language. 

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the University of Brighton and am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). Alongside private practice, I have volunteered and worked for St.Michael's Hospice Bereavement Service, Macmillan Counselling Service at Eastbourne District General hospital and The Sara Lee trust. 

I adhere to the BACP ethical framework, am fully insured and am continuously building on my knowledge through relevant CPD and Supervision.

Member organisations

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

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).

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.

Wheelchair access on Wednesdays.
