About me

About Me:

Hello and Welcome,

I am a BACP registered Counsellor and as such, work within the BACP's ethical framework.  At the present time I offer counselling to adults/older adults, and am happy to support you in finding your own answers, whether that be through long or short term focused work.  Though guided primarily by the principles of Carl Rogers' Person Centred Approach, I am able to work with Gestalt, TA and Integrative models which means we can work flexibly to suit your therapeutic needs.

I offer you a warm, supportive and confidential space where we can work at your pace, exploring those matters important to you.  You may be feeling anxious or depressed, worthless or stressed - or perhaps you are seeking closure or acceptance at the end of a relationship or bereavement?  Wherever you find yourself right now, know that things can change.  By reaching out and sharing our concerns in a safe, non-judgemental environment, we can often experience a shift in how we view our situation or relationship/s and this enables us to move forwards with new understanding - both in terms of ourselves as well as others.

Further information

Prior to re-training in Counselling I have worked extensively with adults and children in a number of different roles.  I have gained experience working with the elderly, both those experiencing loneliness and isolation, as well as those living with Dementia and/or life-limiting illnesses.  In the past I worked with children on the Autistic Spectrum in an educational environment, later moving on to work with vulnerable children and their families as part of my role in West Sussex Children's Services.  Most recently, up until June 2019, I offered counselling through the Patient & Family Support Team at St Catherine's Hospice, Crawley - and I currently see clients at Carers Support, Crawley as well as in my Private Practice based in Haywards Heath and Crawley.
