About Me

Thank you for visiting my site. We are each troubled at some stage in our lives and seeking help is the first stage of change and recovery.

Anxiety and depression are prevalent with the stresses of family, work and commuting. At no other time in history have we been bombarded with so much information, on screen, in the media, wherever we look, if we allow ourselves the time to look up from our iPhone or iPad.

Time to have our needs met is precious and so many other things intrude each day, However there is hope and freedom from anxiety and depression can be achieved with the right support.

I have been interested in mental health and well-being for over 30 years, since my time volunteering for the Samaritans in Edinburgh and throughout my career.

I have trained in: Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, and Trauma and Recovery Therapy. I offer counselling and psychotherapy as a TA Psychotherapist in Advanced Clinical Training.

Currently, I volunteer with the Perinatal Mental Health support team, for East Sussex National Health Trust. This service supports parents who have experienced traumatic births. Having trained as a Trauma Therapist I find working with parents who have experienced traumatic birth very rewarding.

Group therapy for post natal clients can also be arranged in my private practice.

I  have a private practice in rural Wadhurst where I see private clients and also at Wealden Institute of Psychology, Crowborough.

I can also arrange Skype sessions  for clients who cannot travel to my private practice.

I have completed over 500 hours with clients, and receive regular supervision from a senior Psychotherapist. Most of my training has been completed through the Wealden Psychology Institute.
