About me

Hello and welcome to my site, I do hope I can be of help to you.
I work either in short term counselling or longer term psychotherapy guided by you.
I work from both a Polegate address 10 mins from the train station and buses and Lushington roads new Eastbourne Therapy Clinic, within minutes of the town centre and the train station.

I am an experienced therapist offering a safe and comfortable environment, and time and space to think about what you want help with. I have trained in a number of different therapeutic approaches and am focused but flexible in my way of working. I would be guided by your needs and what you are hoping for in attending for therapy.

I believe I could be helpful to you in finding what you need in order to feel, think or behave in a more satisfying way and in nurturing your relationships and sense of belonging.
my psychotherapy specialism is in acute and chronic Trauma experiences using EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. This is a highly effective and evidence based model that addresses
historical trauma and its consequences on your overall physical and psychological well being.
Do watch either of these 2 video interviews with the founder Francine Shapiro, you tube called Getting past your past Dec 2011 or Trauma Researcher and Psychotherapist Bessel van der Kolk who describes the processes involved in Trauma and EMDR very well, http://bit.ly/2exOzBH

I offer therapeutic help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship issues; including couples
  • generalised anxiety disorders
  • parent child relationships and family relationships
  • phobic disorders
  • and specialise in trauma from childhood experience, life events or shocking near death experiences or medical interventions amongst other problems.
  • separation loss and bereavement
  • some alcohol related problems

Are you just wanting to talk through a dilemma with someone outside your social network, or is it a problem that you need help with?

It can be hard to seek professional help, but the first step is to acknowledge the need for help. You are welcome to contact me to discuss what is on your mind without commitment to attend for therapy.

I offer a free 30 minute Consultation on the telephone.

Ring me for a further discussion.
