About me and my therapy practice
I have more than 10 years of counselling experience and specialise in working with clients on the autism spectrum. I successfully completed a PGCert in Autism and Asperger Syndrome from Sheffield Hallam in January 2020 and currently work as the lead Counsellor at Islington Autism Hub.
I work in a person-centred way to support clients to explore whatever difficulties they are facing in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
I am based in Brighton and see clients face to face near Queens Park and I also work online via Skype and Zoom.
Some clients come to counselling as they wish to explore whether they may be autistic prior to seeking diagnosis or when they are on a waiting list to be assessed. I also work with clients after they have recieved an autism diagnosis so we can explore what it means to them to be autistic and how to integrate this new information into their personal experience. I also work with parents of autistic children, of any age, and husbands or wives who wish to better understand their relationship with their autistic partner.
I welcome clients who wish to work within a transpersonal psychological approach towards personal growth which may includ discussing spirituality and faith and/or Buddhism.
I am a Specialist Autism Employment Mentor and work with clients privately or via the Access to Work Scheme. As a Specialist Mentor at Brighton University, I support young adults with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and mental health conditions to achieve their full academic potential.
