Therapy/Counselling offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable.

It allows you to talk with someone who is trained to listen attentively and work with you towards improving your wellbeing.


I work with both individuals and couples from my consulting room in Saltdean.

I am an attentive and empathic listener, with counselling experience extending over more than
eighteen years.

My qualifications are listed below and I am a British Association of Counselling (BACP) senior-accredited counsellor, working within its Ethical Framework.

In addition to my core counselling qualifications, I also work as a supervisor of other practitioners and a counselling trainer.

I have a special interest in Systemic therapy and EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) work.

My qualifications:

PG Dip. Applied Systemic Theory
(Tavi. & Port./UEL)

Uni. Adv. Dip. CBT Studies & Skills (Derby Uni.)

Dip. Couns. (ABC)

Cert Ed. (Greenwich Uni.)


The first step is to arrange an initial meeting. This is an opportunity for you to meet me, to talk about the issues you are facing, and how you think counselling might help.

In the initial meeting, we will agree how many sessions might be needed for the counselling work and agree a time to meet.

I will send you an email confirming our agreement and providing directions to my consulting room, which is in Saltdean and on the number 27 bus route.

A counselling session costs £40 for an individual client and £60 for a couple. Payment is usually made at the end of each session.

There may be occasions when I will not be able to offer you your session for various reasons. I will
give you as much notice as possible and if I can, offer you some alternative times.

I ask for 48hrs notice for cancellation of sessions, otherwise I charge 100% of the fee for the missed session.
