A Special Place of Tranquility in the Sussex South Downs
COVID-19 Update - May 2021
I am pleased to be able to welcome children and young people back in my hut as of the beginning of June. Online consultations will of course be available as they have been over the past year. If you or your child would like to attend face to face, I will need you to complete a lateral flow test half an hour before the session. I am fully vaccinated and will be testing myself twice a week. Unfortunately, I won't be able to offer parents/carers a waiting room until further notice.
The Sanctuary Counselling Centre offers children, young people and families a non-judgemental, tranquil and safe environment where I aim to help them feel confident to talk openly and honestly. I have transformed a Scandinavian log cabin, the 'Fox', into my therapy room to create this special environment. It overlooks the rolling hills of the Sussex South Downs around Steyning and feels like a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, yet it is only a 10min drive from Shoreham-by-Sea.
My practice is based just outside the village of Steyning and due to its semi rural location offers free parking. For waiting parents/carers, I will soon be able to offer a comfortable space with magazines and country views again. I also offer video consultations via WhatsApp, Zoom, Google Chat and various other platforms.
I work confidentially with clients on a short or long term basis, depending on each persons individual needs.
The chemistry between my clients and myself is really important for a positive experience so I offer free initial consultation sessions where we can get to know each other.
I have many years experience working with people of all ages and walks of life and specialise in working with children and young people in the following areas :
Bereavement and Loss
School problems / phobia
Confidence and Self-esteem
If you have a child that is showing signs of depression or self-harm please take a look at the help and advice section too for some initial ideas and suggestions for how you can start to support them.
To speak to me about your needs or to arrange a free initial consultation session to find out if I am the right counsellor for you, please complete the form on the Contact page or call me on the number displayed in the footer of this page.
