About me

Hello and Welcome,

It can take courage to seek counselling so I will greet you with warmth and compassion and an open and honest mind. Whether you are facing a specific challenge, struggling with a long term problem, wanting to find effective strategies to lower anxiety, or hoping for a happier relationship, I can help.

I offer a safe and welcoming space where we can work together to understand the root cause of your problem and help you to make changes, gain confidence and move forward so lasting growth can develop and you can live your fullest life.

I work in an Integrative way, which means drawing from different models of therapy including Person Centred, Gestalt and Existentialism and using Creative Methods and Mindfulness Techniques to find what works best for you.

I work with Individuals aged 16+ with a wide range of issues. Counselling is not just for people who are in crisis, it is beneficial to those with a personal struggle or for those who feel they have lost their spark in life.

As well as my private practice in Pevensey and Bexhill, I offer online sessions with the convenience and comfort of your own home and Walk and Talk Therapy if you prefer to be outside or feel less comfortable in a sit-down setting. Walking side by side can feel less formal, plus you will have all the added benefits that walking and nature can provide. 

I began at AAAC counselling Services as a Volunteer Therapeutic Support Worker and have continued there as a qualified Integrative Counsellor. There I have gained experience of working with adult survivors of childhood abuse and trauma. In addition, I work with adults at Butterflies Child and Adolescent Counselling Service and previously at Care for the Carers, a voluntary organisation offering support, guidance, and information to unpaid carers.

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.
