With over 15 years' post qualifying experience, I provide brief and longer term counselling for individual adults and young people experiencing a wide range of issues. Taking an integrative approach, I offer CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), Psychodynamic and Solution Focused therapies and specialise in abuse, addiction/s, anxiety, bereavement, depression, sexuality and work related issues. I also provide counselling supervision.
I work in private practice at Fiveways/Preston Park, in East Brighton and in West Brighton/Hove. I provide initial consultation followed by regular weekly or more than once weekly counselling. Sessions last for 50 minutes, with concessions available.
I qualified as a Psychodynamic Counsellor in 2002 with the University of Sussex and gained CBT skills in 2012. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics.
