About me

I am a qualified and registered counsellor working in Saltdean in East Sussex.

The type of counselling I subscribe to is called ‘humanistic’. Core to this approach is the belief that we each have within ourselves the self-knowledge and ability to identify our own problems and solutions.

Sometimes, this can take a little time and some unpeeling of layers before we get to the core of who we really are and where we need to be.

The role of counsellor, therefore, is not one of advisor but companion, as you talk and work through the things that are troubling you, and begin to make sense of them.

To this therapeutic relationship, I promise to bring a listening ear, empathy, honesty and respect, whilst you provide expertise in the one thing that really matters in all this … you.

The counselling room here in Saltdean is comfortable and private, a non-judgemental space in which to talk about whatever it is that you would like to, with the assurance of confidentiality and empathy. 

There is ample parking on the street outside with no charges. Unfortunately, the room is reached by stairs as the house is on a slope so there is no wheelchair access. 

I also offer online sessions for those who prefer it or live further away. If accessibility is a problem then do call to discuss.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

​I have been a Positive Placement Mentor for the YMCA supporting young people towards a positive future. Also a teaching assistant for level 2 counselling adult learners at Aldridge Adult Learning in Portslade. Since 2019 I have been volunteering for a charity offering affordable counselling in Southwick, West Sussex.

Member organisations


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.
