Work relationships, bereavements responsibilities and the experiences of life can
often become overwhelming!
This can lead to anxiety, stress, low self esteem depression or many other
At times like this it can be helpful to find the time and space to be heard, explore
your experiences and find ways to overcome your problems.
Can create a calming environment away from the hustle and bustle of daily life where you are able take the time to reflect on your important issues.I provide two therapy rooms in either Bexhill or Battle; these spaces have been carefully selected with the balancing effects of nature in mind.
The Bexhill practice is located on the seafront, providing tranquillity and an ever changing backdrop of space looking out to sea,
The Battle practice is rustic and soothing, nestled on the Historic Normanhurst Estate, surrounded by the Beautiful Sussex Countryside. In addition I offer outdoor therapeutic spaces allowing clients the opportunity to experience the calming effects of nature.
During your initial consultation you are invited to choose the therapeutic space to best suit your needs.
Is created by building an alliance between client and counsellor, I will work in partnership with you to address the issues that brought you to counselling, tailoring the therapy I provide to meet your individual needs.

My commitment to you
I endeavour to deliver the best possible service to my clients at all times, I appreciate each person has different needs regardless of diagnosis and will require a therapy tailored to them. I am a Humanistic Counsellor and believe that all people have the capability within them to grow and develop if the circumstances are right. I adhere to best practice principles and follow the code of ethics and practice as laid out in the BACP ethical framework.
I will explain to you everything I can about your situation and circumstances of your presentation, working with you to develop a plan of therapy.

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).
