I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor with a private practice in Brighton and Hove.  I am also an Academic Lecturer at Metanoia Institute teaching in the Transactional Analysis department. 


I am a Certified Transactional Analyst which means I have a psychotherapy qualification in Transactional Analysis.  Transactional Analysis psychotherapy and counselling offer an accessible and simple approach to help people build awareness, understand themselves, their relationships with others and patterns in life.  Although it offers a simple approach it also enables deep work into old patterns and redecision in psychotherapy.

I had a varied professional life working in the private and not-for-profit sector prior to becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist.  This included finance, fashion, PR, music, events organisation, publishing, online editorial, education and arts education as a teacher.  I have extensive experience working with children and young people in support roles. 

I now work with people from all different walks of life, with students, people working part or full time or not working. I work with young people aged 18 and upwards, I also work with people in older age. 


I currently work for myself in private practise, for Employment Assistance Programmes and insurance companies and have experience working short and long term with people from very varied backgrounds.


I am a member of UKCP, UKATA, EATA and IARTA adhere to the UKCP and UKATA’s code of ethics.
