About me

Is it time for change? You don't have to do it on your own.  I can support you to understand yourself better and live a more grounded and fulfilling life.

I offer both short and long term counselling. My style is gentle, empathic and holding.

I counsel adults around a wide range of issues. ​These include: anxiety, family & relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem and boarding school.

​​I am a member of BACP, NCS and UKATA, abide by their codes of ethics and am fully insured.

Training, qualifications & experience

My core training is in Transactional Analysis (TA) counselling and psychotherapy; I have additional training and experience in working with adult ex-boarders.

I have worked as a drug and alcohol counsellor and as a college counsellor.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The clinic in Hove is wheelchair accessible.
