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 Counselling, 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.

£45 for an hour session
