Counselling & Therapy in Ashdown Forest, Haywards Heath, Sussex


If you have difficult issues that are preventing you from being fully engaged with life then counselling can help. Investigating problems that are causing confusion and distress with an experienced professional can help to sort out unsettling thoughts and provide a solid foundation on which to build the future.

As a professional counsellor, specialising in bereavement, I am familiar in working with the issues surrounding grief and loss.

Loss takes many forms and, if unresolved, can lead to anxiety, depression, anger or lack of self-esteem.

Experiencing the death of a loved one is a hard loss to bear and having a safe place to express and explore our feelings can be enormously helpful.

However, we can also lose other significant things in which we have invested a great deal of time, effort and emotion.

At times we need to grieve for relationships, dreams, youth, status or health for example. We find it difficult to let go and yet trying to hang on frustrates our efforts to move on with our life. Sometimes we need support while we let go, and help to manage the consequent loss. As a counsellor specialising in loss and bereavement I provide this help and support.

If a current difficulty feels like the last straw, talking it over with a counsellor provides the space in which to untangle seemingly insoluble problems.

Talking therapy provides the opportunity for you to explore your full potential.


About Me

I am a fully qualified, practising counsellor in the Haywards Heath and Uckfield area.
I live on the border of East and West Sussex in Ashdown Forest, not far from Forest Row.

It is my belief that any and every issue you bring to counselling deserves attention if it is affecting your ability to live life to the full. As a professional therapist I offer you the opportunity to talk about whatever is troubling you in a safe and caring space. In a warm and sensitive environment we can look at possible causes for difficulties you may have and work together to facilitate the changes you want to make.

I work with individual adults on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
