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 confidential 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 Crawley Down, West Sussex and Patcham, Brighton.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

Therapies Offered.
I offer Psychodynamic Counselling. Psychodynamic is made up of two words; psyche, our inner world and dynamic which refers to movement. It emphasises looking at the psychological forces beneath the surface that effect our feelings and behaviour, becoming aware of them, thus allowing change.

Type of Client.
I work with adults and young people and trainees.

Practical Details.
I work in Crawley Down, West Sussex and Patcham, Brighton, and online (using FaceTime or Skype) and I offer telephone counselling. It is possible to work with a mixture of these. If you are not sure then we can be in contact to discuss this further.

Session are usually weekly, either open-ended or time limited (say six or twelve sessions.)

We arrange an initial meeting to meet and get a picture of what is going on for you, and to decide whether we can work well together. There is no obligation to continue. In this session I will explain a little about how I work and there is opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have. I aim to give you a sense of what I feel your presenting issues are about.
