About me and my therapy practice

Life can be very demanding and challenging at times and dealing with issues on your own can feel overwhelming. You may be experiencing anxiety, depression, a bereavement, a traumatic experience, redundancy, or other emotional issues. Let me help you explore these complexities in a space free from judgement, where trust is quickly established and an ability to work collaboratively is viable. I can help you face and work through these negative emotions and support you in making changes.

I am a qualified and practicing Counsellor with a BA (hons.) in Counselling. A registered member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Association of Christian Counselling (ACC).

With over 20 years’ experience working in the voluntary sector with adults, young people, and families. Former founder of VMG Design a community-based care service working with two major care providers, where I contributed to raising the standard of health care for a combined total of 17 years. 

Practice description

I have spent many years providing psychological support to predominantly vulnerable women with trauma and life threatening issues, their families, and carers. In addition, I work part-time as a School Counsellor where I attend several schools in West Sussex.

Work consists of a diverse client base. I can offer both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy. Working with an integrative approach enables me to adapt and tailor my work to each client. 

My first session

The initial session provides us with the necessary opportunity to understand a little more about each other. Such as, your reasons for attending and expectations. It also allows us to mutually determine whether we can work together.

I will ask specific questions about - what brought you to counselling? Why now? What you hope to gain from counselling?

Should you decide to pursue counselling building a therapeutic relationship will form the basis for our counselling work – where there will be conveyed a mutual feeling of trust, respect, and genuine concern.
