About me

I am an experienced Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with over ten years’ experience of working with individuals as a Coach and Therapist. I work with adults of all ages from confidential and safe counselling rooms in central Uckfield, with free parking.

Covid-19: I am now offering socially-distanced face-to-face sessions; however, I also offer online video sessions via Zoom and phone sessions.

I understand that you might be struggling with a difficult situation, a crisis in your life or emotions that feel overwhelming right now. Whatever you are feeling, I am here to offer you a warm, caring and supportive space, where you can talk confidentially in a safe, non-judgmental environment.

As a Humanistic therapist, I believe that everyone can make new choices that create the possibility of positive change in their lives, however difficult it may seem. Together we can explore your situation and the difficulties you are facing, enabling you to create change in your life, feel better and move forward. Seeking out therapy can be a positive first step in improving your relationship with yourself and others and in improving your mental and emotional wellbeing.

It is the relationship between you and your Therapist which is the most important factor in successful therapy and finding the right therapist for you is key to this. I therefore, offer a free initial phone or on-line consultation.

Please feel free to contact me on 07538 100513 to arrange this no obligation consultation.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

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.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
