I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor. I undertook my training at the University of Brighton. In practice I draw on theories including person-centred, existential principles and Transactional Analysis.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I practice within their ethical framework.

I hold a certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling, this was completed through the Counselling Tutor.

I have an introductory certificate in Counselling young people, this shows competency under the BACP stage 1 curriculum.

Recent training includes completion of an Autism Awareness Level 2 and 3 courses and a number of Bereavement focused workshops.

I continue to update my practice through attending seminars, courses, workshops, networking with other professionals, reading books, papers and outcomes of research.

I am a counsellor with special interest, and extensive experience, in supporting people who care for others. Caring for someone else is looking after needs of another person when they are unable to do it for themselves. I have offered counselling support to a range of caring roles, such as parents, someone with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Autism, someone with a mental health issue, drug and alcohol issue or learning difficulties.

I have recently held a School Counsellor role with YMCA Downslink Dialogue Service. In the past I have volunteered for Carers Support West Sussex, Brighton and Hove Mind and a local low-cost counselling service.
