About me

I am a warm, caring and empathetic counsellor able to draw on experience from working pastorally in a range of settings including acute mental health, a University, a counselling charity and a HIV charity.

I have worked with a wide range of clients with many different kinds of challenges and have particular experience in working with anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement, reproductive health, shame and stigma and adapting to change.

Counselling offers us a safe space to explore our thoughts, feelings and histories. I believe that in addition to my skills and experience, the most important things I can offer you are a non-judgmental attitude and the ability to hold on to hope when you might be struggling to hold onto it for yourself.

Training, qualifications & experience

My first degree was in psychology. I have a diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling and a certificate in youth counselling. I have worked as a counsellor for Chichester Counselling Service where I offered open- ended psychodynamic counselling and for Positive East where I offered an integrated approach and worked both long and short term with clients affected by HIV and AIDS. I also have received training in CBT. I have worked in mental health for the NHS for the past seven years.

I am a member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP).
