About me

Hi, I am Charlotte, welcome to my website. I am a qualified counsellor and an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist. I am based in East Sussex.

I offer counselling sessions to adults aged 18+ in person or online. I am based at The Wellington Centre, Hastings on a Thursday and work online at other times during the week.

I have completed four years of Transactional Analysis counselling and psychotherapy training and have obtained a Diploma in Counselling. I have additional training in addiction, online counselling and anxiety.

I have counselling experience in the private and volunteer sector. I have worked with individuals with alcohol and substance addiction and with new parents at the East Sussex NHS Perinatal Mental Health Service.

My previous working life was in the National Health Service as a Registered General Nurse. I am able to provide a confidential environment and work at your pace. My approach is warm and empathetic

What is counselling and how can it help?


  • Counselling is a structured process in helping to process life events. A session is usually 50 minutes long on a regular day at the same time
  • People seek counselling for many different and individual reasons including wanting to understand themselves better, improve their situation and change something about their life
  • Talking about our experiences, feelings, thoughts and behaviour can help to view them from a different perspective
  • Counselling can help to identify patterns of behaviour that may leave us feeling stuck
  • Counselling allows for a space to talk about ourselves without judgement and can empower you to make decisions about your wellbeing

Transactional Analysis Counselling

Transactional Analysis (TA) Counselling and Psychotherapy was developed by Eric Berne

Berne’s philosophical beliefs that underpins TA practice is:

  • Everyone is OK, each person has importance and validity
  • Everyone has the capacity to think and influence their life by the decisions they make
  • We have capacity for change, people have choices and can decide their destiny

TA has become a widely respected tool in the counselling and psychotherapy field and is being used to foster working relationships within education and business fields

TA concepts are simple to learn, are effective and can be used collaboratively with other therapy models such as Person – Centred, Gestalt, Humanistic and CBT
