I work creatively with clients to explore all aspects of themselves including compassionately investigating other perspectives. I have particular expertise helping people work through anxiety or stress, or difficulties in a relationship with somone significant in their lives. While some levels of anxiety are completely normal, if you feel overwhelmed then counselling can be a great way to help. Equally forming relationships with people can be challenging for all of us – be that romantically, at a new job, or with family or friends. However if you feel stuck in a particular pattern, or you have one particularly challenging relationship then I would encourage you to reach out for help.
I see individual clients currently exclusively online, but eventually I plan on returning to working in-person as well. I have found working online to be just as effective as face-to-face counselling, and it can be more convenient for clients. I work with people for the short-term and long-term, whichever is right for you.
My relationship with counselling started when I was going through a difficult period in my life at University, when I felt completely isolated and trapped in my own head. The counsellor I saw was so empathic, good at listening and challenging that they genuinely changed my life for the better. I’ve gained so much insight and acceptance of my own way of being through counselling. So I know first-hand the power that talking with a professional can have, which is why I trained to become a psychotherapist myself.
I am a qualified counsellor based in Worthing in the UK, and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the University of Brighton. Before that I qualified with a BSc in Psychology, and an MSc in Substance Misuse. I’m a fan of fantasy and sci-fi stories in various forms – including comics, films and novels.
