About me and my therapy practice

 I have been qualified since 2004 and have a wide variety of experience.


Being truly heard and accepted by another human being can be the beginning of a different and more satisfying life.As a person centred counsellor I believe that each individual has the capacity to find their own way forward in life given the right conditions and this underpins my approach. I can offer a safe environment where you can express yourself without fear of judgement and be truly heard.

I like to work creatively using the person centred approach with creative arts. If you choose to work with creativity I will facilitate you to interpret your own images to find meaning in them.

My work in my private practice is varied.    I am an affiliate for employee assistance schemes and experienced in short term solution focused therapy and workplace issues.

I  worked for a local hospice from 2005-2014 as a counsellor, supervisor and counselling coordinator providing counselling to patients and their families as well as bereavement counselling and group work. 

After I qualified I trained in Person Centred Art Therapy.

I offer a free 30 minute introductory meeting so that we can see if we want to work together.

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. I trained as a counsellor because I always enjoyed interacting with people.
