About me

Sometimes we find we need to reach for some help and support to think through and feel how we are experiencing life especially when it is becomes overwhelming, difficult or somehow changed and different. I will provide you with empathic presence to do this in a confidential, non-judgemental space, for you and for your experiences, issues and problems to be heard.  Along with genuine respect for you and your own unique experience, I can accompany and support you.

I have experience in helping clients with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship, and work-related issues, or if you are feeling sad and need somebody to confidentially listen to your concerns and difficulties. I also specialise in helping clients with loss, the loss of another loved one or relationship, or job, home, former way of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Humanistic counselling diploma from Metanoia Institute and BSc.(Hons) in Humanistic Counselling from Middlesex University. I am a registered member with the BACP. I have worked for a London Counselling service and now as well as my private practice I work for a community counselling service, Counselling Plus in Hastings.

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.

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.
