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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
