About me

I am a UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, working in Hassocks. I work long or short term with adults and specialise in the areas of trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression and loss. My roots are in a humanistic approach and the therapeutic relationship is key to my work, I draw on theory from Person centred therapy, existential therapy, transactional analysis and MBCT.

I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for clients and together we will explore your personal narrative, make meaning from events and relationships in your life and understand more fully your sense of self and how it is to be you in the world.
It is my role to understand your unique experience, enable an enhanced self-awareness and from there together we can bring about positive change for you. As a trained yoga and meditation teacher I sometimes draw on my knowledge of breath work, meditation and mindfulness in therapeutic work with clients where appropriate.

I also work as a Senior Lecturer at the University of Brighton on the PGDip and MSc training programmes in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.
