About Me

Photo 1_edited.jpg

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and a registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). In addition to my private practice, I am a counsellor with the NHS, based at Sussex Cancer Centre working with people affected by cancer directly and as caregivers or family members. I have a background of teaching English and 20 years in education which, at its best, is also about connection, relationships, engagement and, most importantly, people.

Integrative Counselling

As an integrative counsellor, I am trained in Person-Centred - the core of my practice, Gestalt, Transactional, Psychodynamic and Solution-Focused therapy meaning I am flexible in my approach, integrating theory to inform rather than direct my practice. It is your situation and perspective which will shape our work. I am fully committed to listening and actively engaging with what is important to you. Our therapeutic relationship will be working side-by-side to make sense of the things that you bring; to explore thoughts, feelings and beliefs that may be painful or difficult; to include an appreciation of your whole self, physical, emotional, spiritual and the environment in which you live.
