What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment enables you to discover if you are comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and assess if therapy may assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment meeting in Peacehaven or Seaford.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy focuses on appreciating and accepting you. It facilitates your openness about the concerns you experience. Client centred therapy aims to help you find your own answers.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue regarding your childhood or adult life you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and find a solution that is right for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your thoughts, emotions and relevant moments in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of coping.

"She is extremely easy to talk to. And when I spoke to her I felt like she was really listening and generally cared which helped me open up more. I feel after seeing Mary I am a much more positive person."

Easy to talk toHelpfulnessValue for Money

"Mary is kind and calm and very astute. She easily got to the route of the problems I was having in a couple of close relationships and gave me the space and time to work things out in my own head, whilst keeping me on track with what my problems were. Her comments were incredibly sensible and every session I came away with a need to improve a specific area and ideas on how to do so that it would work for me. It wasn't always comfortable for me as I needed to change, but it was necessary and has been brilliant and I never felt alone during the transitional period. I cannot recommend her more highly."
