About me and my therapy practice

Do you feel Lost or Stuck with your emotions? Are you experiencing feelings right now that are overwhelming, or maybe it feels too difficult to talk to anyone right now. Maybe these feelings been ignited by a past trauma or event in your life which have been triggered by a recent event. You are not alone and do not need to feel that you are.

I am a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and passionate about  providing a calm, honest and non-judgemental therapeutic space.  I help and support individuals through a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem to achieve a stronger sense of self and greater self-worth. 

As well as working privately I currently volunteer within a local organisation supporting those experiencing Loss, Grief and Bereavement. Previously I have volunteered in Agencies giving support to those experiencing  substance addiction specifically drugs and alcohol.

There can be many reasons for accessing therapy and it is well understood that this can be a  daunting process. Reading this means you have taken the first step towards finding a Counsellor.

Being a Person-Centred Counsellor means that our sessions are focused on you. We will work collaboratively to find a pace that is comfortable for you. This allows for a free and open conversation. I  am none directive & will not tell you what to do as I believe my clients know best about what they want from their therapy.

My hope would be that you feel safe enough to unpack your feelings and concerns; increase your self awareness and to move towards and reach your fullest potential. 

The curious paradox is that

when I accept myself just as I am,

then I can change”

Carl R Rogers


Practice description

My practice is in a beautiful and tranquil location along the East Sussex coastline and has disabled / wheelchair access. Counselling takes place in a safe space where your thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely; whether this is face to face or over zoom. 

I am currently seeing clients online via Teams. This has worked well for many of my clients as it offers more flexibility. 

As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I adhere to the BACP ethical framework, and I receive regular clinical supervision from an accredited practitioner.


My first session

Initially, I offer a complementary 30-minute session for clients to talk about what they would like to gain from therapy. Within this time I will listen to you, offering a calm and non-judgemental presence. I will provide you with the information that you need to make an informed decision regarding your therapy during this session. You decide what you would like help or support with. You as my client are at the centre of our work and we will explore whatever you choose to share with me.

After this session, if you feel I am a good fit for you, we can book in future sessions. These will be 50 minutes each.

About me and my therapy practice

I started life working with young people where I gained extensive experience of child development, as well as understanding many of the problems facing young people today. Later in life I worked with older people presenting with a variety of mental health issues which include addictions, dependency, loss, and bereavement.

Choosing this profession was not a difficult decision for me as it was my own positive and personal experience as a client that led me to train as a person-centred therapist. I am passionate in my belief that everyone has the right to be their true selves, but I realise that on occasions this part of us becomes buried. Mostly we can manage life’s daily challenges, but I understand it can be difficult when we feel overwhelmed.

It’s important to choose a therapist who offers a non-judgemental and confidential space where you feel safe to unpack and explore emotions. Within my practice our therapeutic relationship will provide you with empathy, compassion, and acceptance.

Working together I can help you understand your thoughts and experiences better and so aid you in your personal growth and development.

As a person-centred therapist in today’s climate, I believe it is important to support those who otherwise would not have access to therapy. So, as well as my private practice I continue to volunteer within a local organisation offering bereavement support. Previous volunteer work has included working with those who have either a substance and or alcohol addiction

My first session

I offer a complimentary 30 minute session to all of my clients. My hope would be that during this session we would gain a sense of whether I am a good fit for you. 

In this session you can use this time to ask about me and if you feel comfortable to talk a little about what is happening for you at this time then I am happy for you to do this also.

At the end of this time there is no obligation to have further sessions. You may want to set a date in the future to start your counselling or you may want to have some time to consider what is right for you.
