I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I've enjoyed an extensive career in health and well being (originally qualifying as a nurse) and have been a qualified counsellor since 2012. I work alongside people with a range of presentations including depression, anxiety, fear, relationship difficulties and personal / work related stress. In addition I have undertaken much specialist training in trauma and have ten plus years' experience of working with people who are survivors of accidents and abuse (physical, sexual and emotional)
My personal style is integrative drawing on humanistic approaches combined with the depth of psychodynamic ideas as well as my insight into how trauma affects the body. I am committed to ongoing development - I have nearly completed a post-graduate qualification in Transactional Analysis (TA). I am also now a Sussex Partnership recognised Mindfulness teacher - when relevant, I integrate this into my work.

Other recent training includes: Mindfulness Foundation programme, Ecotherapy (working outside), APT Accredited Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Essentials; Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; Mindfulness treatment of trauma related dissociation; many other trauma related courses (including working with PTSD, wind-back technique and Emotional Freedom Technique)
My previous qualifications include nursing (RNLD), Management (Exec Diploma in Mgt), Body Massage (ITEC), Aromatherapy (NVQ3), Business Studies.
