I am a BACP accredited counsellor. For 20 years, I have been helping individuals and couples to work through issues and difficulties which are troubling them.
I work with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, grief, low self esteem, relationship issues, bereavement, obsessive/compulsive behaviours, general low mood, lack of assertiveness, boundary issues, anger, trauma and depression.
I love and am committed to my work, and I am happy to say that over the years, I have seen very good results.
I began counselling out of a doctor's practice in 2000, and soon established a private practice based near Heathfield in the East Sussex countryside.
I offer individual counselling and relationship counselling (including family relationships and same-sex relationships) and I am now trained and qualified to offer E.M.D.R (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), a effective and safe technique for processing trauma and other conditions such as anxiety and grief.
I offer counselling at Horam Natural Therapy Centre and from my comfortable home in the Sussex countryside near Heathfield. I work daytimes and evenings, and home visits can be arranged if needed.
I have three grown-up children and two golden retrievers, and when I'm not counselling I enjoy cycling and walking with family and friends.
Please call me on 01435 830 386 or text me on 077 68 26 11 94 to arrange an initial appointment.
