"I really appreciated the way you helped me see my problem from a different angle, especially how I was contributing to the situation - that meant I felt more empowered to take responsibility for my life instead of expecting others to change." - Helen

Why seek counselling or therapy?

Research in the UK, using routine outcome measures, has found that three-quarters of people felt better after receiving counselling. My experience is that the majority of people I work with are better able to deal with their challenges as a result of counselling or therapy.

Deciding to seek counselling/therapy is an investment in your health and well being. As a counsellor I work with clients who live in Eastbourne or other nearby towns such as Bexhill.

"Thanks to the couple therapy we're actually making time for each other and the relationship, and feeling the benefits, whereas before we came we'd got into the habit of prioritising other things, such as work or the kids." Jean-Pierre and Rachel.


I work with men and women who are dealing with a variety of problems. These may involve difficulties dealing with anger, anxiety, addiction or depression. Others may come seeking help in how to deal with intimate relationships, family issues or work stress For some individuals there may also be a sense of a lack of meaning in their life, a feeling that the enjoyment or satisfaction has disappeared from their professional or personal lives.

"You've helped me become more self-accepting and less judging of myself, and that's really had a big impact on my relationships with people in my work and personal life. I'm more ready to stand up for myself but at the same time have become less judgmental." Paul


I offer couples counselling to people in Eastbourne or from other nearby towns such as Bexhill, to help people who are having relationship problems. Some come because they are in conflict all the time, others because the passion seems to have disappeared.

Other common themes are betrayal, jealousy and an unsatisfying sex life. By exploring these issues in a safe, non-judgmental space couples can regain a sense of intimacy and love.

"We've learned to actually listen to each other, rather than screening out half of what the other person says and getting stuck in the same old misunderstandings and resentments." Carl and Anoushka

Skype therapy

As well as face to face work, I also see clients via webcam. This enables people who are not able to physically attend sessions to receive counselling or therapy.
