About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor with a BACP accredited diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP and I am also a member of their Children, Young People and Families Division.

I work with young people from the age of eleven and upwards and adults from all different life experiences and backgrounds. I have experience working with a diverse range of clients and I work inclusively with everyone.

​I have been a counsellor at As You Are in Southwick for the last 5 years and through them I am also a counsellor for students at Plumpton College in East Sussex. In addition to the above roles, I am the Youth Counselling Team Leader and have been a youth counsellor for 3 years at Sussex Community Counselling within SCDA.

​I have experience working with a wide variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, isolation, bullying, expression of self, body issues, gender identity, issues around schooling including important transition periods and loss and grief.

​Along with my counselling training and ongoing continual professional development, I have also trained and completed the ASIST workshop in suicide first aid.

​My aim is to meet you where you are in your life right now, in a safe and non-judgemental environment. 

Practice description

Life can be difficult or challenging sometimes and you may have an issue that you want to explore. Or you might just feel as if something isn’t right. Counselling is a place where can unpack this in a safe and confidential environment.

If you would like to try counselling, please do get in touch and we will work closely together to figure out what might be going on for you. Or we can talk about a particular issue that you may have. By talking and working together we may be able to help you heal, move forward or change in the way that you may want to.

I work in a non-directive and client-led way and will work with what you bring to the sessions. 

My first session

In your first session I will ask you some questions about yourself and why you are seeking counselling at this time in your life. I understand that this may seem daunting, but you will have time to ask me any questions about counselling and the way I work, and at the end hopefully we can figure out if I am the right counsellor for you.

A discounted price is provided for initial sessions at £25.

​I offer short term counselling of up to 12 sessions or longer term depending on your needs.

Sessions are 50 minutes a week and cancellations need to be provided with a minimum of 48 hours to avoid being charged in full for the session.
