About Me

Welcome to my website. 
I set up my private practice in 2007.  I work from a quiet, private room in my home in the village of Plumpton Green at the foot of the South Downs.  Plumpton Green is a short drive from the surrounding towns of Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Hassocks and Lewes, it has a mainline train station and there is ample free parking.  
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 the person centred art therapy association PCATA.  I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and professional practice.
I am experienced in short term work for employee assistance schemes and I have experience of going in to the work place to support employees in response to a critical incident.
After I qualified I trained in Person Centred Art Therapy.  I have a range of materials to use including a sand tray and objects.  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.
