About me

Are you having a tough time at the moment? Is life a little overwhelming or maybe you’re struggling to find clarity in your thoughts?

I offer a kind, non-judgemental, therapeutic space where we can gently work together through any issues you may be experiencing. My approach is person-centred, meaning that our sessions are non-directive, being led by you and at a pace that feels appropriate. A safe, reflective and empathic space, created solely for you.

I am able to offer you short and long term therapy.  Working collaboratively, we can address life’s blocks and emotional hurdles which often can hinder us from living our happiest and fullest lives. Together we can negotiate these challenges and effect change.

I’m a registered member of the British Association for Psychotherapists and Counsellors (‘BACP’) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework in my practice. I’m also an LGBTQ+ affirmative counsellor, working with marginalised clients. I currently provide voluntary counselling sessions to an LGBTQ+ counselling service based in Brighton.

I hold public liability insurance and an enhanced DBS check.

Member organisations

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.
