About me

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

Making the decision to have counselling can be a difficult one and choosing the right Counsellor can be a daunting prospect; so am I the right Counsellor for you? I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor offering both short term and long term counselling for adults experiencing any kind of emotional difficulties.

I have spent the majority of my professional life working with both men and women  who have experienced domestic and sexual abuse and my area of interest and knowledge lies within trauma and crisis. I have  worked closely and intensively with survivors of FGM, Honour Based Violence and Forced Marriage.

In addition to this I have gained experience working with Clients with disorded eating and addiction  during my  time as a Therapist at The Priory.  My Client  work extends to  a range of different issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD  relationship difficulties and suicide and self harm, though this list is not exhaustive .

I have worked within the Judicial system for many years and in Further Education working with students  aged between 16-18 years old with emotional and behavioural difficulties. I am a qualified Tutor/Trainer and in addition to my Counselling work , I also teach Counselling at  Level 1,2 and 3.

I am an Integrative Therapist which means I use a range of different approaches and adapt them to suit your needs.

I am warm, friendly and honest and can offer you a safe and confidential space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I work from a central location along the Seafront in a beautiful building , which provides a peaceful sanctuary.
