I trained at the University of Brighton at Masters level, gaining a Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling. I am committed to the Person Centred approach, and my practice is deeply rooted in this modality. I spent 7 years volunteering with Cruse, first as a bereavement volunteer working with adults, and then, following their training, working with bereaved children and young people. I continue to work with children and young people in my private practice. I'm helped in this work by my experience and training as a primary school teacher. I have also taught on counselling skills courses at Sussex Downs College, where I also worked for a year as a Specialist Mentor, offering support to HE students with mental health difficulties.

I completed an Ascentis accredited award in supervision through Cruse Bereavement Care in 2010. I then spent two years supervising groups of bereavement volunteers for Cruse. I currently supervise groups of bereavement volunteers for St. Wilfrid's Hospice, Eastbourne. In my private practice I supervise qualified counsellors, and also trainee counsellors who are training on the Foundation Degree in Person Centred Counselling, University of Brighton. I also supervise counsellors who are completing the BSc(Hons) degree in Person Centred Coounselling, University of Brighton.

I offer Person Centred supervision, where my aim is to offer supervisees the core conditions so that they can explore their work in a safe and non-judgmental environment. We explore both client content and also therapist process.

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.
