I am passionate about understanding how the jigsaw puzzle pieces of relationships fit together; what happens when we have contact, how does my behaviour impact on you, what effect do you have on me?  I want to understand why our puzzle pieces have their particular shape.  How do we fit together and what benefits does that fit give us?  Counselling is a place to explore these and many other questions; it gives you the chance to find out more about yourself, the choices you've made, your relationships with others and with yourself.   Once you've discovered more about who you are and how you fit in the picture, you can decide whether you want to redesign your piece of the puzzle.




I am interested in existential issues: facing your mortality can give you a new perspective on life and could be your chance to make changes that will bring fulfilment to your life, before it's too late.


I am seeing clients on Zoom during the Covid 19 pandemic; alternatively we can meet face to face using one of the local green spaces. We can maintain social distancing and it can be easier to discover and connect to ourselves again when we feel the ground under our feet and the wind on our faces.  I am fully qualified and insured and am Chair of Sussex Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I've been a BACP member for nearly 20 yrs which means that I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
