About me and my therapy practice
I create a safe and supportive space to listen deeply to what concerns you. If you are struggling to overcome painful experiences or you simply want to develop your potential and to live more fully, it can be helpful to have a skilful, caring and experienced person to talk to.
I work with individuals who are looking to understand their past and present difficulties, seeking to diminish the power of unhelpful defences and self-defeating patterns of behaviour.
I use a mixture of therapeutic styles including psychodynamic and relational approaches in order to support you to work on the challenges you face. I will help you to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings with the aim of helping you to be the best you can be and to realise your full potential – to be free, healthy and more self-aware.
Therapy is a weekly space just for you where you can get the support you need. Sessions last 50 minutes and are at the same time every week. I work on an open ended basis but can also offer shorter term work which can be effective for specific issues such as following a major life event.
I have a wide range of life experience including many years working as a senior manager for special needs and education charities. Alongside my private practice I have worked in university counselling and local community counselling services.
I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I have a postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre in London and am currently completing my training as a Psychotherapist with the University of Middlesex. I also have an undergraduate degree in law and an MBA.
My work is conducted within the BACP Ethical Framework and UKCP Code of Ethics.
Due to the uncertainties at present, sessions are online using Zoom. I hope to resume in person sessions soon and am based in the Tunbridge Wells, Crowborough, Uckfield and Heathfield areas.
