About me

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.
