About me and my therapy practice

I offer accessibly priced professional counselling online or face-to -face to anyone who is struggling or sometimes feeling overwhelmed. Perhaps you're at a crossroads in your life, where you just can't see a clear way forward. Or maybe you're suffering from anxiety or depression which is difficult to handle. 

I provide compassionate support and guidance, to help you to find clarity and sense of purpose again. I will enable you to find ways of dealing with even your darkest and most difficult times. Depending on your specific situation, you should notice a difference in your quality of life within six to twelve sessions.

Above all, I aim to create a supportive and positive space where you can be heard with sympathy and without judgement. I believe that all our sufferings and difficulties have the potential to make us more compassionate, more resilient and more alive as people. That transformation is what I will try to help you to achieve.

Practice description

Following government guidelines, I'm currently working online only, using Zoom and Skype.

From July 2021 I hope to restart seeing clients face to face, in my quiet and private consulting-room a short walk from Lewes Station, or from Lewes Maltings car park.

My first session

I usually arrange a try-out session at a time which is mutually convenient, to look at your needs and to see if counselling will be helpful for you.

If you decide to continue , we then contract for a further 5 sessions, after which we review the work and progress made. At that point you may choose to bring the work to an end, or to continue with weekly sessions on an open-ended basis.
