I am an experienced and qualified counsellor Bsc hons with specialist training in working with adults, children (7-10) and young people (11-18). I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Working from a experiential and integrative approach. I hold an enhanced DBS and am fully insured and attend regular supervision in accordance with the BACP.
Offered is a confidential place for you to talk without judgement and be the real you. For me the most important aspect of counselling is the relationship with the person sitting opposite me. By being open, accepting and honest in the relationship between us, it gives you the choice to create the life you want and be the person you want to be.
I believe that you are the expert on your life and know the answers inside you.
I recognize it can feel a big step contacting a counsellor about any issues, feelings or problems you feel you are struggling with. I am a experienced Person Centered Counsellor, who has worked in different therapeutic settings. My aim is to offer a safe, confidential place for you to explore any problems/issues you would like to explore. I offer short term and long term sessions. I draw upon different therapies to suit you; solution focus and other humanistic therapies.
.Experienced in Peri-natal and Post-natal Counselling as worked for the National Health Service (NHS) as a counsellor. I am currently working with homeless people at the Seaview Project, St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex. This client group is one of the most complex of mental health issues.
I require parental permission to counsel a young person or child under the age of 16 one to one. The content remains confidential between myself and the young person. However, if where I am concerned about an young person I will take the necessary action within the guidance of supervision. This may mean direct disclosure to parents and care givers.
Confidentially for adults remains unless I have reason to believe someone maybe at risk of serious harm. I will if possible discuss this before disclosure to a third party. At all times, keeping within the BACP Ethical Framework.
Working as a Primary Mental Health Worker and a School Counsellor in both Primary and Secondary schools I have a wealth of experience of child and young people challenges and problems they maybe experiencing. Worked for ARK Little Ridge Academy, Hastings, Castledown Primary School, Hastings, Skinners Kent Academy (Tunbridge Wells), Bennett Mermorial, St. Matthews Primary School, High Brooms, Two Bridges, Tunbridge Wells, and many others. Working with the Seaview Project Hastings as Wellbeing Support Staff for Homeless People.
