In my experience the reasons for seeking counselling are as individual as the people who contact me. Perhaps a life event such a bereavement or relationship breakdown has left you feeling unable to see a way forward, or you feel stuck in unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling or behaviour. Whatever your reasons, I aim to provide a warm and empathic relationship from which we can explore your therapy goals.
Having worked in a caring profession for many years as a Registered Dental Nurse prior to becoming a qualified counsellor, I am experienced in empathically responding to people’s pain and discomfort. My extensive counselling and psychotherapy training has now enabled me to offer support for emotional and psychological distress. I started my journey to become a counsellor initially with a view to help dental phobic patients but soon realised during the training that I enjoyed working in other areas also.
I now run a private practice seeing adults in the Crawley and Horsham area alongside my work for a Sussex based charity providing counselling to young people with mental health issues, as well as their families. In addition to these roles, I have been lucky enough to have worked at a leading London hospice providing counselling support and an online low-cost counselling service. As a result of these posts, I have gained experience in a diverse range of presenting issues and have included some of my areas of expertise for your information.
