About me

Choosing the right counsellor for you is an important first step of your journey to a happier future. I am able to offer you non judgemental and caring support throughout this unique experience in a safe and confidential environment. My core belief is that each person who chooses counselling is a unique individual with their own unique problem. Seldom do we as individuals take time out of our busy lives to sit down and talk to someone who will listen. I am a qualified Counsellor and I believe that in building a strong and trusting relationship with my clients it will enable them to feel safe and supported whilst discussing and exploring the issues that they have chosen to bring to the counselling room. I specialise in working with people who want to improve the quality of their life. Having worked in a busy medical practice for some years I have found that many issues that are brought to counselling involve loss of some kind. Loss can involve losing a friend, a family pet, a job, good health, a relationship, a family member, control of eating or drinking, self esteem, and confidence. Counselling can offer Warmth, Compassion,  Authenticity, A Safe Haven,                               Deeper Self Acceptance, Awareness and the belief that you have within you the ability to find your own way. In terms of my experience I have worked with a variety of issues including: Bereavement Depression Anxiety Trauma post traumatic stress Relationship difficulties Work related issues Low self esteem Bullying Sexuality issues

I have a comfortable consulting room at home which is situated within 300 yards of a main line railway station, within easy reach of Lewes, Polegate, Willingdon, Hailsham and Seaford. I offer a safe, comfortable and confidential therapy room with easy parking.

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.

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.
