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.Fees:£45 for an hour session£67.50 for 90 minutesCounsellors in training: £40
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
