About me

I am Inspire Therapy Sussex and am excited to share my new and exciting core offers. I have redesigned this year and am looking at developing the company to places I never even dreamed existed a year ago!

I have developed a creative new way of responding to COVID19 by expanding into online ways of working. I have developed programs on an app portal where I can support on a whole different level. I am running challenges on these programs to support emotional well-being with both adults and children.

I am using Facebook as a community group where I will be running free and paid masterclasses and training in different themes, working with other professionals in aligned services, offering Facebook live Q & A sessions and so much more. Get involved

I can work with adults, children, families and professionals as 121 or in groups.

I am offering support face to face or virtually whether that is to help resolve a personal issue and be able to move forward or support with clinical supervision/ consultancy.

I am trained in EMDR for trauma and attachment.
Play Therapy and creative modalities such as art, clay, sand, Lego and Music.
Behaviour Activation for depression and anxiety.
....and numerous other solution focused client specific approaches.

As a qualified supervisor I offer Clinical Supervision to local therapists and trainees face to face or further afield via Skype/ zoom.

I offer bespoke packages of support including training and workshops, parent child relationship support, and parenting.

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.
