I am a BACP accredited registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working from a secure & private practice in Hurstpierpoint/ Hassocks.
In the midst of life's complexities and demands, it's not uncommon to feel a sense of unhappiness or disconnection. Our work together will create a space for you to delve into the reasons that led you to therapy, bringing attention to areas that may not be immediately apparent.
Alongside becoming a Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I have over 25 years of experience working with young people (aged 13 plus) and families, as a Youth Worker and also as a Family Coach. This has been an excellent foundation for my second career in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Throughout my own journey I use photography as a creative pathway to question and challenge my own thinking to explore possibilities for change. Photography has given me the space and mindful approach to look and give consideration for the world around me.
At times I have welcomed the use of photography within the therapeutic space to offer a creative way of working. Bringing emotionality that at times cannot be expressed in words alone, this can be a helpful tool to unpick the tensions and complexities that may arise within our work together.
