About me

I provide counselling for adults and young people at my home in Hanover Brighton where I run a small private practice. Alongside this I also work at The Rock Clinic, a private psychotherapy clinic, the Brighton Institute of Modern Music and the Academy of Creative Training. I trained as a person-centred, integrative counsellor and have been practising since 2003. Lately I have become interested in Gestalt and mindfulness.  I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their ethical framework. I also am a qualified supervisor and see student and qualified supervisees.

Life is uncertain and difficult and we will inevitably face losses:a relationship breaks up, those who are close to us die, we become ill, we maybe face redundancy, or lose interest in and love of life. Talking to someone who is trained in the workings of the mind can be helpful and consoling. No advice is offered - counselling helps in that you can tell your story and be actively listened to, Being fully heard without judgement may facilitate a fuller understanding of yourself and help you to find your own way to live your life.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
