About me

Hello my name is Justin. It is important you find the right counsellor for you.

You may have gone through life, never having felt very valued, heard, understood or accepted. Others conditions, wishes, hopes, expectations can become muddled with your own. Your relationships don't always work out with others as well as you may like them to. Even more importantly your relationship with yourself. People who care may see you as a projection of their needs and problems and likewise you may do the same with others.

What brings you to counselling?

You may be feeling; stressed, anxious, confused, angry, sad or lonely. It could be that your personal relationships are not working out as you would like them to. Or even that you are not feeling very good or confident about yourself. You may have suffered a loss or bereavement or have suicidal thoughts and self harming tendencies.

You may be a survivor of childhood abuse (CA) or have been in or reside in an abusive relationship.You may be feeling low in mood, depressed and wanting to make better sense of yourself and the experiences you have had or are having.

I also have particular experience in working with survivors of Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Conversely you may not be feeling vulnerable, or be affected by poor mental health and wellbeing. You may wish to seek a better understanding of yourself, a place to think things through,. To 'float' ideas around with a professional.

Contact me with any questions or queries via email or phone.

The way I work and what you can expect

I listen to you with empathy, I seek to understand, to accept and to respect where you have been, where you may go and where you are now. I offer a reflective relationship that is considerate and sensitive of your needs as they present themselves. I see the work as a collaborative process between you and I.

Listening to you and the change you want to create. In that vein we may well think about various solutions, strategies or approaches in working with a wide variety of issues. Always working with your needs and experiences, going at a pace that you feel is necessary.

An explorative, supportive and reflective opportunity to increase your sense of self, gain better understanding, self awareness and emotional competence. So that you may go forward and live your life more fully.

I offer an environment of:

  • Hope
  • Empowerment
  • Empathy
  • Reflection

As well as a place for appropriate challenge.

I call myself a Humanistic Integrative Therapist as I draw upon a variety of approaches under the humanistic umbrella, which include: T.A, Gestalt, Existential, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Person Centred ways of working. I also utilise creative and narrative approaches in a way that best fits you.

I have a broad range of experience in mental health services, in the health care sector as well as a varied experience as a counsellor.


Working Creatively...

I value working creatively, words may not always encapsulate how you may think and feel. Working creatively provides another way of articulating the experiences you have. I may invite you to work using various creative media, such as: drawing, writing, keeping a journal, metaphor, sand tray work. Or the use of stones, objects or role play, exploring new ways of being to help in your own self exploration.

A little bit more...

I am fully qualified, insured and a registered member of the BACP. I attend regular supervision and I am committed to my own personal development as a Counsellor and attend regular CPD events and workshops throughout the year. I have experience of working within a number of charitable organisations as a counsellor.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed shorter time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I have experience of both short term and long term work. I am able to offer Skype (online) counselling for those further afield than Brighton and Hove, or who work inconsistent shift patterns.
