Counselling Therapy Hastings


Monday 23rd March 2020 – Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:

In light of the information coming from countries that are ahead of us and government advice on social distancing and isolation measures, I have sadly decided to temporarily suspend providing face-to-face counselling and psychotherapy sessions for the time being.  In the meantime, I plan to investigate Skype and other online platforms and will post details when I’m ready to work in this alternative way.

As this is an evolving and ongoing situation it is difficult to predict when I will be able to recommence face-to-face sessions, when that time comes I will update my current clients.  I care deeply about the well-being of the people I work with and this measure has been taken with a heavy heart, however, the protection of my clients is paramount.  Wishing you all well in these difficult times.  Thank you for reading. 

Making the decision to start therapy is not always an easy one.  Whether you are here in hope, pain, excitement or fear, or all of these feelings at once, I welcome you.  If you are searching for a fully qualified, deeply experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who will help you to get the results you want, you are looking in the right place.  With over twenty years’ experience of working successfully with clients, I believe with every therapy a difference is made not only to the client themselves but also future generations. 

Life is a journey which can be complex and challenging.  Are you feeling stuck or alone, confused or on edge?  Do you want to loosen the grip of anger, depression and unhelpful patterns, or to heal your relationship with a loved one?  Do you want to free yourself from the legacy of childhood abuse?  Or are you looking to increase your self-awareness, nurture your creative potential, and increase your level of happiness?  For more information on how counselling therapy can help you, please visit  What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

I work with individuals, couples and young people (age range 18+) providing a safe, confidential space to talk through whatever brings you to this point in your life – whether they are unresolved issues, current difficulties or hopes for the future.  There are no fixed number of sessions, counselling can be brief (4 – 12 sessions) or psychotherapy, longer term.  I see clients from Hastings, St Leonards on Sea, Bexhill, Eastbourne, Battle, Northiam, Rye and beyond with a wide range of issues that includes:

  • Abuse
  • Anger Management
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Codependency
  • Couples Counselling
  • Depression
  • Family Issues
  • Low Self-Confidence
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Relationship Issues
  • Sexuality
  • Spirituality
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Work Related Issues
