I specialise in helping people overcome and gain recovery from sex addiction and other areas of addictions and have been doing so since 2009. I have tailored my style of therapy to enable my clients to not only gain as much insight into their own addiction, but also the tools to live a more fulfilling life free of addiction.
In addition, I have worked as a volunteer at a charity organisation where counselling was offered for carers. I have also worked at one of the largest NHS doctors’ surgeries in Eastbourne where I was the leading therapist for 3 years covering many areas of mental health. As my own private practice grew, I felt it was appropriate to concentrate more of my time in my specialist field of addiction, as well as general mental health difficulties to include bereavement, self-esteem issues and all forms of abuse. I also offer couples counselling should you be looking for help and support with your relationship.
Although my practice is formed primarily in the Person-Centred Approach, I also have training in other areas and in addition I am currently studying a degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and therefore adhere to their code of ethics. Being a member of the BACP, I follow the ethical framework for good practice which requires regular supervision as well as a minimum set hours per year for continued professional development.
It can be a struggle to even find the right counsellor, who not only are we comfortable with, but equally fully understands the difficulties we may be facing. As a good working relationship is of the highest importance to my therapy, I offer a half price introductory session to help you make a better informed decision as to whether I am the one that you feel comfortable enough to work with.
Training, qualifications & experience
I started my counselling training in 2011, I hold a Foundation Degree in Science (Fdsc) in Person Centred Counselling and I have a certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. As well as my private practice, I volunteered at Care for Carers in Eastbourne for two years and at Seaside Medical Centre becoming their lead counsellor and counselling coordinator. With these placements and my private practice I have worked with a number of presenting issues, these being:
Addictions (Sex, Alcohol and Drugs), Depression, Psychological and Physical Abuse, Suicidal Thoughts, Relationship Difficulties, Co-dependency, Bereavement, Low Self Esteem, Stress and Couples.
As well as ongoing person development, I am currently studying Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at degree level.
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
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.

As I shared earlier, It can be a struggle to even find the right counsellor, who not only are we comfortable with, but equally fully understands the difficulties we may be facing. As a good working relationship is of the highest importance to my therapy, I offer a half price introductory session to help you make a better informed decision as to whether I am the one that you feel comfortable enough to work with. In addition, please do not hesitate in contacting me and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
