About me

I will work effectively with you to gain clarity, insight and understanding, help you make positive changes and choices and just generally feel better.

I have been working as a qualified Integrative Counsellor for over fifteen years. I believe Counselling is a process all individuals should have the opportunity to experience and benefit from at some point in their lives. I specialise in relationship and family issues, abuse and trauma, depression and anxiety, and neurodiversity.

I am a nurturing, positive, holistic, non-judgemental and collaborative counsellor. I welcome individuals with different culture, nationality, gender and sexual identity (the LGBTQ+ community), ethnicity, age and neurodiversity. I use the pronouns she/hers.

What is counselling?
Counselling is a unique rich process of talking and exploring what each individual needs to at that time with someone independent and qualified to aid and support them and nurture change. Family and friendships are vital, if we have them, and yet being able to talk an issue, anxiety or experience through with my non-judgemental nurturing Counselling approach has entirely different benefits that aid personal growth, healing, insight and change.

I offer affordable general individual Counselling as a private practice, which includes one-to-one sessions in Hove, as well as telephone sessions or zoom, subject to individual needs and suitability.

About me:
I am a married mum of two children living in Hove. I previously lived and worked in London as a counsellor and team manager for charitable organisations such as ChildLine, Victim Support and the Domestic Violence Intervention Project (Waterloo).

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future. Thank you for looking at my profile.

Member organisations

BACP
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

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

I have a ramp that can be used for access, for confident wheelchair users only as the ramp is not permanently fixed.
