About me

About me

I offer individual one to one counselling from a comfortable, welcoming space right behind Eastbourne railway station.

I am experienced in working with individuals with depression and anxiety, including those who may self harm and/or experience suicidal thoughts. My experience as a mental health nurse, working in an NHS crisis team means I can hear your experience fully without shock or judgement.

I see each and every person as an individual with unique experiences. I will offer you a space where you can explore your experiences through a relationship where you can feel heard and accepted for who you are.

I hold a Postgraduate diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the University of Brighton.  With my previous qualification as a Mental Health Nurse, I have spent 8 years working in community services within the NHS. Due to these roles, I have considerable experience of working with a variety of mental health difficulties.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work in accordance with the ethical framework for counselling professionals.

How to get started

At first I will arrange an initial session where we can get to know each other and we can explore what brings you to counselling. If you would like to continue with regular sessions, we can then decide how often to meet and when, usually weekly.

Please give me a ring or drop me an email if you have any further questions or would like to arrange an initial session.

I look forward to hearing from you.
