About Me

I have been fascinated about the human mind all my life and after discovering a book by Eric Berne I became determined to use Transactional Analysis method in order to help others. In addition, as part of my ongoing counselling journey, I have found the power of working with the body as well as the mind, just incredibly useful. “our body cannot lie, our mind can” I often use meditation, visualisation in my personal life and in therapy.

Therapeutic Approach

My counselling style is more about encouraging self-acceptance as a good enough person than searching for perfection. It’s about finding self-compassion and quietening the inner critic. I support people who want to find more acceptance in who they are, but feel blocked by self-criticism, fear, sadness, anxiety or feeling overwhelmed, or doubt. I tailor our work to meet your individual needs, progressing at a pace that suits you giving you time to build trust in me and the process. I will work alongside you to reach any goals you may have and help you on the road to find your truth and inner power.


I work holistically with people who are experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem etc. I have enjoyed working with adults as well as teenagers. I have a private practise in Brighton, Worthing and online too. I have been working part time in the Recovery Lighthouse Rehab in Worthing as an Addiction/ Mindfulness Therapist. I am familiar with the 12 steps program. I use meditation and mindfulness.
