I completed my Diploma in Transactional Analysis Counselling at The Link Centre, Newick, East Sussex. Much of my experience has come from working with many clients within a large medical practice, having also trained as a Bereavement Volunteer and now operate my own private practice.

 

I believe that in building a strong and trusting relationship with my clients it will enable them to feel safe and supported whilst discussing and exploring the issues they have chosen to bring to the counselling room.

Having worked in a busy medical practice for some years I have found that many issues brought to counselling involve loss of some kind, which usually involves the client feeling anxious. Loss comes in many forms, it can involve loosing a friendship, a family pet, bereavement, a job, good health, a relationship, control of eating / drinking, self esteem and confidence. 

 

I use Transactional analysis in my approach to counselling and this helps me to stay with and support the client whilst they take their own journey of exploration through their problem and make their own measured decisions on what feels right for them.

 

I have a private practice working from my consulting room at home which is central to the surrounding areas of Lewes, Polegeate, Hailsham, Seaford and Eastbourne and offer ample free parking. I am also situated within 300 meters of a main line railway station.

I also practice in Newhaven covering the Brighton, Hove, Saltdean and Peacehaven areas.

During early sessions my aim is to discuss with the client their issues, explore the best way in which we can work together.
