About me

I am an experienced, BACP accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist, and I offer a free initial consultation session in order for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor for you. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and compassionate approach to working with your issues and I draw on my personal integrity, honesty and openness to provide you with a secure and supported space for personal change.

I am deeply committed to my work, and to your emotional health and wellbeing, and I have been developing my skills and experience in counselling and psychotherapy since I commenced my psychotherapy training in 1995.

In addition to my person-centred counselling I have a sound theoretical base to my work in Transactional Analysis, through which I can offer you a comprehensive model of therapy and personal development that addresses your relationship with yourself and with others. This allows me to provide you with a clear framework for achieving personal change that supports self-esteem, effective relationships and greater fulfillment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I originally worked as a Corporate Lawyer and Company Director in London and mainland Europe where I gained considerable experience of working with individuals, groups and organisations.

I subsequently trained in Counselling and Psychotherapy (starting in 1995) and I studied for four years at Wealden College, in Crowborough in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, together with Gestalt and Person-Centred counselling skills. I have a diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy.

I have worked widely within the social care sector, including ten years working with adolescents and young people.

I have been a counsellor for an NHS funded substance misuse service in Brighton and I have a thorough training in working with substance misuse.

I have undertaken a detailed psychotherapeutic placement working within an NHS therapeutic community specialising in secondary care mental health issues.

I run a private counselling and psychotherapy practice in Lewes, East Sussex.

I am a member of three professional organisations and I abide by their codes of ethics of good practice:

  • The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • The United Kingdom Association of Transactional Analysis
  • The European Association of Transactional Analysis
