About me

I am a person centred counsellor based in Eastbourne. I am able to deliver counselling sessions both on a short or long term basis, either face to face, over the phone or online.

I believe that individuals deserve an opportunity to reach their full potential, to grow and to change as a human being. Whatever the reason may be to seek counselling; whether for improving your mental health and wellbeing, or as a result of more difficult circumstances in life, I strive to offer a safe, confidential and nurturing environment for you.

I work in a person centred way, which means that I will not judge or direct you or what you chose to bring to therapy. I believe that by being a genuine, empathic and grounding presence for you, you will have a trusted companion on your journey with me in therapy.

I am passionate about supporting my clients to explore their issues, feelings, beliefs, behaviours and worldview, so that they may become more self-aware and achieve a greater sense of self. Therefore we will work at your pace, with what you chose to bring to the therapeutic relationship, you are the expert of your world.


I have experience of working with many issues that client's have bought, namely; Alzheimer's, Dementia, spectrum disorders, caring roles, traumatic events, eating disorders, sexual abuse, domestic abuse and violence, bereavement, anger, sexual assault, relationship issues, childhood, depression, identity issues, stress, suicide, separation, self-esteem and confidence.

Sessions are 50 minutes long and £40 per hour for online/telephone or face to face. I offer open-ended therapy so there is no limit to the sessions. Usually sessions are weekly or every two weeks. Therapy is different for everyone and perhaps influenced by financial situations or finances. We can work together on a time frame to suit you.

Payments can be made in cash on the day, or by BACS. BACS payments need to be made within 24hrs of the session.

To book an appointment or to enquire you can email me or call me.

Introductory sessions give us a chance to meet each other, discuss ways of working and for you to ask any questions you may have. We can look at what is bringing you to therapy, explore what you might need from me, and anything you may be feeling anxious about. This first session is not quite the same as a therapy so there is a reduced rate of £20 for 50 minutes.

I work from therapy rooms in Eastbourne; 10 Station Parade, Eastbourne, BN21 1BE.
For telephone or online sessions, the same boundaries apply. So ensure you have a safe, confidential space without interruptions.

I try to be flexible regarding availability where clients need to rearrange or cancel a session. There is a 24hr cancelation notice required, either by phone or email.
