About me

Are you struggling with emotional issues, depression, stress and anxiety, low confidence, grief and bereavement, or relationship problems.  I  can offer you the time to talk, share and work through personal issues in a safe, supportive and confidential environment.

Taking the first step can be daunting but talking through your issues or experiences with another person can be a huge relief.

How Counselling Can Help

Counselling can offer you the time and space to talk about what worries you, or what feels too much to deal with alone when you feel there is no one else to confide in.  I work at a pace that suits you, in a safe and confidential environment, where together we can explore the things that are troubling you and help you work towards healing and a happier and fulfilling life.

I provide a private and confidential counselling service from my therapy room in the beautiful village of Glynde near Lewes in East Sussex. 

Bereavement Support

I have worked in a voluntary capacity as a Bereavement Counsellor within the Family Support/Adult Bereavement Team at the St Nicholas Hospice in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. This work has provided me with in-depth, practical experience working with grief and bereavement and broadening my understanding of the concerns and emotions experienced at this very difficult and painful stage of life.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.

Further information

Although I work with clients experiencing a wide range of life challenges, my particular area of interest and expertise lies in the field of grief and bereavement.  This is always a very challenging time in anyone's life and the relief of talking to someone with an in-depth understanding of the emotions and stresses during this time can be incalculable.  The journey through grief and loss can be daunting, but I can walk with you, offering support and understanding.

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.
