ABOUT ME

For a number of years, I worked as a counsellor for a local charity in Hastings, offering short term therapy. Alongside my private practice, I am working with another Hastings-based organisation which provides a whole range of creative and supportive services for young people in the area. My main role within this service has been providing counselling via GP referrals and within local schools.

I am currently working towards my Certification in Couples & Relationship Therapy through the Gestalt Centre.

 

For the majority of my training, I volunteered as a counsellor for an organisation in Brighton, supporting people who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.  I provide LGBTQ+ affirmative counselling and I hold a personal interest in working within these communities. I hold some experience and training in working with gender diversity and exploring sexuality.

Some of the other issues I have some experience in working with include:

  • low self-esteem

  • loss of identity

  • suicidal ideation

  • bereavement

  • bereavement by suicide

  • sexual abuse & rape

  • depression

  • work/ study related stress

  • anxiety

  • chronic illness

  • life transitions

  • childhood trauma

  • parenthood

  • sexual issues

  • self-harm

  • intrusive thoughts
