About me

People come to me with a variety of issues that they hope to resolve such as anxiety, depression, divorce/ separation, isolation, anger management and grief etc.

I have extensive experience of working with children, young people and adults; using a variety of creative processes to enable self-expression about issues that may be difficult to convey in words or speak to others about.

You may choose to just come and talk, or if talking is difficult I may suggest a creative exercise. I also offer outdoor sessions in a private woodland for those who feel they would benefit from being outside in the natural environment. Please contact me to discuss further if this is of interest for you.

I offer an affordable service with a sliding scale based on income starting at just £15.00 per session depending on circumstance. Please visit my website for further information.

There is free parking.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated with an MCGI (Level 7 Masters equivalent through City & Guilds) from Tobias School of Art & Therapy in Sussex and am a fully qualified Transpersonal Arts Counsellor. I hold public liability insurance and up to date DBS checks. I have worked for numerous primary, secondary and sixth form schools in Sussex, as well as within the community for the YMCA - Dialogue service & the Brighton & Hove Wellbeing Services which run in partnership with the NHS. I also hold private practice in Ringmer, just 10 minutes by car from Lewes & Uckfield.

I am a registered member of BACP.
