I am a Qualified Person-Centred counsellor based in Eastbourne.
I work with adults, Adolescents and children above the age of 5. I use person centred and creative methods in my therapy.
I believe that every individual has the unique ability to strive and feel acceptance in themselves, you just need to find it. I offer a non-judgemental, safe and congruent environment for you to explore your feelings openly around whatever it may be that is holding you back from feeling like your true self.
You are not alone, together we can work on identifying what may be causing you anxiety, stress or depression. Using the person-centred approach, I will support you on your journey of personal growth.
I understand what it can be like to go through difficult times and with the right environment and relationship you can overcome your challenges and develop an inner strength, leaving you more aware of who you are. Because you are enough!
What to do next:
So, once you have decided to use my services here are the next steps-
Firstly, get in contact with me through email, website or phone. I will respond and give you some information on how I work. Then if you wish to, we can arrange our initial discussion. This is a good opportunity for you to tell me what you might want from therapy. We will also go over the contract and if you wish to continue then we will arrange further sessions.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
