About me

Life can be difficult and finding someone to help can seem overwhelming at the start.

Every journey begins with the first step
Here is a brief description of what I have become over years of being in practice.
I have over 20 years as an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, qualifying with a Master's degree. I also have a strong and continuing interest in Jungian depth psychology
I developed my practice whilst working in Inner City London, for the NHS in a large health centre, and for various addiction and community-based charity organisations.

I am an experienced counsellor, now in private practice.

I have developed a creative approach to my work over the years, as I understand my clients as individuals seeking help rather than judgement or labels.

I have been a Trustee of the national mental health charity Survivors Poetry since 2004.

My professional journey has led me to some specialist interests.

These include:

Addiction and recovery

 Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Critical Incident debriefing

Panic attacks  


Early trauma


Mood and personality disorders.

Alongside with the more general anxiety, relationship, and work-related problems.

I have worked with a wide variety of clients,  multicultural heritage, boarding school survivors, carers,  international refugees and ex-service families.

I have a room at South Coast Counselling 198 Church Road Hove.

I also offer Zoom and telephone counselling as alternative to face to face work.

I can work with fortnightly sessions if needs must.

I am willing to negotiate fee reductions if appropriate. I already offer reduced fees to people who work in the public sector.
[*Confidentiality is of course particularly important. However, there are legal caveats which I will have to make clear. If in our work I fear that there is a serious risk of harm to self or to others, including harm to children, I am required legally to break our contract and inform the relevant authorities. I am also obliged to report extremist views and terrorist activity.]

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have worked previously in inner city London, with a multicultural group of clients. This included refugees from civil wars, new arrivals from overseas including UNHCR resettled refugees

I am also available for Critical incident counselling ( the period just after a major, over whelming event) and of course PTSD and other forms of trauma. ( I was on teams working with the Lee Rigby murder and latterly the aftermath of the Grenfell tragedy)

Finally I am well travelled, I have a wide ranging interest in the arts and humanities . I am well studied in world religions and philosophies, and I work creatively and non dogmatically with the range of issues that my clients bring. I take therapy seriously, and  research current developments.

I am not a box ticking bureaucrat.

Further information

Online Counselling

In these times of C19, i am presently working online. I use either Zoom, or Stillpointspaces platform to ensure a confidential space.

I have worked online and as a telephone counsellor for over 8 years, and although it has it's differences from face ro face work, I find it a good medium to work in.

There are caveats though> I personally do not work online with self harm, eating disorders or OCD as I find the remote nature is not ideal in case of emergencies.

I ask of you that if you do choose to work with me online that we still keep to the same day for appointments( though times can be more flexible) and that you can find a guaranteed safe space to talk confidentially for an hour.

Your safety is of paramount importance with telepsychology , in a way , above the usual safeguards.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
