I'm a qualified Humanistic counsellor working in East Sussex. A fully insured and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore work adhering to their code of conduct and ethical framework.
In addition to my private practice, I work for St.Michael's Hospice in St.Leonards as a Bereavement Counsellor and for The Sara Lee Trust, supporting people in the Hastings and Rother area affected by cancer and other life threatening illnesses. I have also volunteered for Macmillan Counselling at Eastbourne District General Hospital working with people affected by cancer.
My own practice is based in the beautiful valley of Bodiam offering therapy easily accessible to more rural communities. This venue offers a tranquil and less medical environment for therapy and I am a part of the wellbeing team at The Hub.
Counselling is a unique opportunity to work in a confidential space, without fear of judgment, on aspects of your life causing difficulty at present. Some people work short term, taking six to twelve sessions, others may wish for more longterm support. This can be discussed in your initial assessment and reviewed regularly as we go.
The therapeutic relationship is an integral part of the work and therefore it is important you feel comfortable with your choice of counsellor and the type of therapy they offer. Humanistic counselling is a phenomenological and existential approach, based on respect and trust. This means I will endeavour to hold in mind what binds us all together as human beings, our shared experiences of what it means to be human, but also to know deeply that we are all experiencing life in our own unique way. Advice is not given but a deep connection of understanding is sought and through this, growth, understanding of self and meaning can develop.
