About Me

I am an experienced, fully qualified counsellor working in private practice in Church Road in Hove and also in West Hove. I use an integrative approach, drawing upon my psychodynamic training along with CBT and other approaches where appropriate to the individual client. The sessions are client focused – it is up to you what you wish to talk about and we work together to help resolve or explore issues. I offer you understanding, empathy, kindness and warmth and I am always non-judgemental. I have much experience of working with people who undergo many kinds of difficulties: including anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss, relationship issues, separation, divorce, menopause, infertility, feelings of loneliness, low mood, stress and drug and alcohol dependency. More details can be found on my website

Therapeutic Approach

Therapy offers an opportunity to explore your concerns at your own pace in a safe, supportive and confidential setting. You may be experiencing challenging life experiences that are proving difficult to process on your own. I can offer you regular therapy sessions; a confidential space; day or evening appointments on a long or shorter term basis. I have experience counselling women confronting fertility difficulties and pregnancy loss. I also have expertise of donor assisted pregnancies and can offer support through this sometimes intricate and emotionally complex time.// The menopause can be a particularly demanding process in a women’s life. It isn’t talked of much in society, which can leave women with feelings of isolation and confusion about their symptoms and feelings associated with the changes happening to them.// Having personal experience of redundancy, I understand how the process can affect you emotionally. During and following redundancy people can go through serious feelings of loss and a resulting crash in confidence. It can feel similar to a bereavement. Speaking to someone about this can help you process the feelings and get your life back on track.// I have both professional and personal experience of working with and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people who are exploring their sexual and gender identity or facing extra concerns that can affect LGBT people.


I am a BACP registered, fully qualified counsellor/psychotherapist. I have undertaken courses in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Couples Counselling since qualification. Before becoming a therapist, I worked in education; teaching young people, training adults and providing consultancy, so I value and see the importance in continued professional development and seek learning experiences to improve and broaden my competence, knowledge and skills.
