Qualifications and Experience

I am a compassionate, qualified and experienced counsellor, able to work supportively with people in great distress to help them to move forward with their lives.

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from the University of Brighton (2010).

I completed a follow-up course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Dr. Adrian Hemmings (www.hemfipsych.com) in 2016 called CBT with Heart. In 2018, I completed a course with ACTO registered trainer Jane Evans (www.ocst.co.uk) to enable me to counsel people effectively and safely via webcam and ‘phone.

I have experience in a variety of settings:

  • General counselling services (Counselling Plus Hastings)

  • Domestic abuse services (CGL Hastings and RISE Brighton)

  • LGBTQ+ counselling services (LGBT Switchboard Brighton)

  • Schools and colleges in Brighton and Hove and East and West Sussex

  • My own private practice

Please get in contact if you think I can help
