About Me

I am a sensitive and perceptive person, and in my counselling sessions I use an appropriate balance between support and challenge, depending on the needs of the person I am working with. I help my clients build their self-awareness as well as open up new and empowering ways of viewing their lives.

Therapeutic Approach

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am able to use a number of counselling approaches according to the needs of my clients. My main approach is Humanistic Counselling, but I have also had extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I counsel people with a wide range of presenting issues, such as anxiety, depression, low confidence and relationship issues.


I started training as a counsellor in 2000 and completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Counselling at Brighton University in 2004. I have been working as a counsellor in Brighton since 2004 and I have been a BACP accredited counsellor since 2009. In addition to being a counsellor, I teach a popular counselling skills course at Varndean College in Brighton.
