More about me and my approach
Having trained at the University of Brighton, I hold a post-graduate diploma in Humanistic Counselling. I offer counselling on both a long-term and short -term basis from both Shoreham and Worthing and both locations offer on street parking and are accessible by public transport.
Counselling sessions with me provide a safe and confidential space where we can work through the problems you may be facing in your life at your own pace. My approach is empathetic and warm and sessions will be tailored to you as an individual, my aim is to build a relationship with you based on trust, respect and integrity.
During our sessions we can explore your experiences, thoughts and feelings and the meaning that you give to them in a safe and non-judgemental space where you can feel heard and accepted. Together we will work towards developing a greater understanding of yourself and the mechanisms you have developed to cope with your difficulties. This can help you to gain more clarity about yourself and your life which can open up new possibilities for change and growth. During this process, I will support you to evaluate and make decisions about your life and your relationships with others.
Before setting up my private practice I worked as a part of the student counselling team at Greater Brighton Metropolitan College supporting students with a number of issues. I also previously worked for East Sussex NHS Trust offering counselling support to parents of young children across a variety of issues including: fertility, traumatic childbirth, perinatal mental health, post natal depression, miscarriage and relationship issues. In addition I also have 3 years experience working at a low cost counselling service based in Southwick.
I am fully insured and hold an enhanced DBS certificate.
