About me and my therapy practice

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

You may or may not have made your mind up if therapy is for you - if you have, let me give you some reassurance around the safe and ethical way that I work - I operate by telephone, online, "walk and talk" and in person out of my safe and comfortable rooms in Hove ( opp Tesco - Church rd). 

I believe my long career and life experience before I became a counsellor is just as useful to you as my learned skills. I spent 20 years in public service and central government in many roles and spent a decade as a lay Trades Union official – Although not identical to counselling, It shared many of the traits such as listening proactively, confidentiality and what I now know as the core conditions: Unconditional Positive Regard, Empathy and Congruence. I also spent 15 years working in the Private sector for a Large US company – so if you have work-related issues, I have a wealth of experience to help you.

Recently added "Walk and Talk" therapy to my offering - Brighton and area or Sutton (Surrey) only.
