About me and my therapy practice

Due to unforeseen circumstances I am not currently available. 

As an experienced and qualified counsellor I offer a free initial consultation for you to discuss what you might want from therapy and to see if I am someone you would like to work with. 

My practice offers therapy in a safe, professional and confidential space in a centrally located office in Eastbourne town centre, a short walk from the railway station. 

Here, in confidence and without being judged, we can explore any aspects your life that you wish to reflect on, better understand or change for a more satisfying and liberated way of living. 

Practice description

My practice is located on the top floor of commercial offices in Hyde Gardens, Eastbourne. I have now resumed face to face sessions at my practice in addition to continuing video and telephone sessions with those clients who prefer these. In addition to my obligation to work safely with you as part of my counselling practice in general, I now have to minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19. I have undertaken a risk assessment and introduced precautions to control the risks as far as is reasonable. A list of precautions that I have implemented is available on request and is routinely sent to all new clients before attending their first session. 

My first session

An introductory session provides an opportunity for us to meet each other, discuss the areas of your life that are of concern to you and decide between us the best way forward. You are under no obligation to continue sessions with me at this stage and there is no charge for this session.
