Heather’s first career was in education, both as a teacher and a leader. She qualified as a counsellor in 2009 and soon became clinical manager at the Rock Clinic. Heather became an accredited psychotherapist in 2014 and soon specialised in fertility work. In 2017, with two colleagues, she established the 198 counselling and Psychotherapy Practice in Hove.
She understands that the diagnosis of infertility can feel catastrophic and that negotiating each stage of treatment can feel overwhelming and leave many living their lives as if in a state of limbo. It can be hard to accommodate the feelings of hope and despair. She is hugely committed to helping to break the taboo around talking about miscarriage and endeavours to offer a space where this can be talked about. She is especially passionate about offering support to LGBT+ clients as they move towards building their own families and working their way through the particular obstacles that they may face.
