About Me

I am not working face to face right now because of the coronavirus pandemic.  I can offer remote sessions by video or email sessions.

I set up my private practice in 2007.

My counselling approach is person centred.  I will work with you to find your own solutions to what is troubling you, providing a safe environment in which to do so.

I worked in a hospice for nine years as a counsellor and bereavement coordinator. I provided counselling to patients and their families as well as bereavement counselling and group work.  I am an individual accredited member of BACP (MBACP) and a member of APCCA the Association for Person Centred Creative Arts.  I adhere to the BACP ethical framework.

I am experienced in short term work for employee assistance schemes using a solution focused approach.

I qualified as a counsellor in 2004 with a Higher National Diploma in Experiential Person Centred Counselling and as a supervisor in 2009 with a Diploma in Supervision from  the Wealden Institute.

My continuing professional development training includes CBT with Heart,  a certificate in Person Centred Art Therapy,  an introduction to mindfulness, training in bereavement and loss, and a certificate in telephone and online therapy.

I have experience of working with people who have a mental health diagnosis including trauma and dissociation. I have regular continuing professional development.

Before I trained as a counsellor I worked in IT technical support for several large multinational companies.  I’ve worked as an administrator/book-keeper for a small local company and as a control centre operator for Mid Sussex lifeline so have experience of a variety of roles and working environments.
