About me

I currently work in private practice from my home where there is a room set aside for my work with a separate entrance. There is easy off road parking and the village is served by the 252 Stagecoach bus service which connects Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne and also goes through Heathfield and Crowborough. I also work privately from within a GP Practice in Crowborough and can see clients at either venue.

I train therapists within university settings where I am involved in experiential learning, skills work and personal and professional development groups.
I have research interests within psychotherapy relating to the issues around how research into human experience can be undertaken.

I work with adults, teenagers and children, as well as with groups and couples. I have worked with a wide range of clients and issues including problems arising from illness and death, childhood trauma and relationship difficulties. I work with eating disorders and issues of self-harm. I also work with those who seek to grow and understand themselves better in order to lead a richer life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a psychotherapist having qualified as a Certified Transactional Analyst registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am a member of the United Kingdom Association for Transactional Analysis (UKATA) and also a member of the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA).My training as a therapist started with my training by CRUSE then going on to do counselling skills courses at the University of Kent at Canterbury and at West Kent College. I did my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling at the University of Brighton where I also did my Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Studies. After this I trained as a Certified Transactional Analyst at the Link Centre. I am also an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (The BACP) and I am a member of the United Kingdom Register of Counselling and Psychotherapy (UKRCP).

I work with my clients on both a long and short-term basis depending on what their needs are.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

UKCP

Accessibility

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.
