About me

I am an experienced Counsellor with over 18 years of experience of working in mental health services, as a nurse and therapist/counsellor in the health service, latterly, with a Lewes based counselling service in Sussex.

I use a integrative approach to counselling, which draws on my training, experience and skills of Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I work with clients for either short or longer term counselling/therapy; working collaboratively to identify the areas that are troubling or worrying you, agreeing the areas you wish to focus in your sessions.

I use a integrative approach to counselling/therapy, which draws on my training, experience and skills of Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, although not exclusively,  clients are individual, so the sessions are tailored to their needs and goals.

Further information

Whilst a clients may be familiar with CBT, they may be unfamiliar with TA.

TA is model of psychotherapy which was developed in the US in the 1960s and quickly became popular in the UK and across the world. TA, can be best described, as a theory of personality and relationships based on a study of specific ego states, a theory of social interaction or interpersonal communication and system of group and /or personal growth and personal change. TA incorporates elements of Cognitive and Behavioural therapy, hence I believe both modalities compliment one another, and was one of the reason why when I decided to do further psychotherapy training I choose TA.
