I have lived in East Sussex now for seven years and when I’m not seeing clients, I like to spend time in the outdoors as much as possible exploring the wonderful East Sussex countryside.
I started my career in the charity sector in London working for ten years with young people around mental health and relationships. I have since enhanced my expertise and now work with young people and adults of all ages. I opened my private practice in 2018 having worked as a therapist in a number of agencies prior to this.
I have a Humanistic philosophy which means I believe in your potential and in your autonomy to create a meaningful and fulfilling life. I have also had long term counselling myself during and after my training which means I can really understand how it feels to open up for the first time and to share out loud what you’re struggling with.
I want to help make counselling as accessible as possible. It can sometimes be a mysterious activity that you occasionally see dramatised on TV or in films. In reality, it’s about taking time to talk with someone you trust and using the time productively to work through whatever you might be experiencing.
I’m down to earth and will help you to feel at ease so that we can talk openly and honestly together. The more self-awareness you grow, the more choices can open up to you, where you may have felt helpless to act before.
If you are interested in my theoretical modalities, I integrate Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and other Humanistic approaches. You can find out more about these on the Psychology Today website.
