About me

I am a Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children in East Sussex & London.

I specialise in chronic illness and disability, relationship and sex issues, life transitions, young people and creative therapy.

COVID-19 UPDATE ** I am able to offer sessions to clients via the telephone, Skype, Zoom, FaceTime and WhatsApp Video** Clients can then resume with face-face sessions once the lockdown is lifted.

Taking the step to seek professional support can be a scary experience, with increased feelings of anxiety, delving into the unknown and trying to put your trust in an 'other'. I aim to create a safe space where you feel able to express yourself and be heard, where you can work through whatever has brought you to consider therapy and feel empowered to make changes and reconnect to you.

I use a variety of modalities tailored to each individual client and am particularly attuned to psychodynamic theories, unconscious forms of communication and working creatively with art, sand tray, visualisations, dreams, meditation, voice, breath, and body work.

It is often difficult to talk about the challenges you are going through, especially for children and young people. Creative work can facilitate this challenge and open up a different perspective for expressing trauma and pain.

As a transpersonal integrative psychotherapist, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation of the explorative journey. The transpersonal approach connects spirit, body, and mind. It looks not only at the pre-personal that affects your personal day-to-day existence, but also at the transpersonal and your connection with your soul.

I have a therapy dog Chloe, who is often in my East Sussex sessions. Chloe is a 9-year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel rescue dog. She is an emotionally attuned, affectionate dog who will happily receive attention or quietly lay on the floor during session. For more information about having Chloe in sessions please contact me.

I offer both long and short term services and your needs can be discussed at your initial appointment.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
