Our Services

Short term Counselling 

Shorter term counselling can help to process challenging situations, thoughts and feelings. Work collaboratively with me to decide what you most need right now to heal. I am trained to take an integrative approach, being able to apply the theories of person centered, psychodynamic, cognitive and other approaches such as mindfulness/creative work to help you

Long Term Therapy

Longer term therapy, through a strong therapeutic relationship, helps to explore how past relationships and patterns of relating impose upon the present. This includes defence mechanisms, transference and trauma responses

Somatic Trauma Therapy. EMDR coming soon 

Somatic Trauma Therapy is a safe and effective approach to healing trauma involving management of the nervous system responses, practical techniques to manage symptoms and gentle, timely processing of events.

EMDR available from summer 2024

About Me

Hi there, thanks for visiting my site. I am an experienced NHS trained therapist and a mother to two lovely bundles of joy, based near the South Downs in Sussex. I have a background in Human Biology and I hold an MSc in Psychology. I offer face to face and online sessions to adult individuals and young people aged 12 and upwards from my comfortable office. I originally trained as an integrative therapist, in Person Centered, Pyschodynamic and Cognitive modalities but I have acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience over the last 8 years in the areas of trauma/somatic trauma therapy, mindfulness, EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and re-processing) and much more.

I have had the honour of working for different charities and services: Rape and Sexual Assault Charity (RASAC, Guildford), Catalyst Drug and Alcohol Service (Surrey), Youth Counselling Service (on behalf of Virgin Care/NHS), Phoenix Project Homelessness project (Worthing) and The Eaves Psychological Therapies Clinic in Guildford.

You'll experience a warm, non-judgemental, steady presence when working with me. I work in a collaborative way with my clients and always strive to establish an authentic, nurturing relationship with my clients in which they feel held, understood and valued.

"The treatment modality is only 15% of the therapy. 85% is the relationship you develop together" ~ Peter Levine
