About me

Hello and welcome to my page.

My approach to counselling is gentle and considered and I am respectful no matter what clients may bring. I aim to create a space where anything may be said and what needs to be shared can be, for there is enormous power in expressing what has been confused or shut down. The counselling relationship is central to my work. Each client is different and what happens in each session is co-created between us. We might touch on some of the following areas:

  • Events in your past and the sense you have made of them.
  • The story of your childhood and the way you were brought up.
  • Your current ways of relating and what these may mean.
  • Your internal world and how you feel inside.
  • Dreams and fantasies.

I bring a warmth and common sense to my work. I like to work mindfully and remain anchored in the here and now.

I work in Forest Row, East Sussex and Patcham, Brighton.

Areas of Counselling.

I welcome and work with clients who come to counselling for all kinds of reasons. Areas I have worked with include the following:

  • Not feeling good about life at the moment and not understanding why.
  • I work with depressive heavy states that make us feel half alive and can become habitual ways of being that become our reality.
  • Anxiety and panic and stress finding it hard to cope.
  • Difficulties within personal or family relationships.
  • Loss and bereavement.
  • Facing a problem that is hard to talk about.


I charge £45 per session. Each session last 50 minutes. Concessions negotiable.
