I offer counselling and supervision in a lovely setting in Hove.
Before training to become a Counsellor my background was in art and music. I have a broad life experience which helps me connect and have a good rapport with all kinds of people from many walks of life. I work with adults and young people. My private practice is in Hove and I am a counsellor in an organization in Southwick, West Sussex.
In all our lives we face challenges and difficulties that can be hard to navigate or work through alone. At times we may experience problems or issues that can sometimes feel overwhelming or leave us feeling stuck. This is when talking to someone who understands you can help. I offer you my full support to help you get where you would like to be.
My aim is for you to create the life you want. If there are changes you would like to make, I can help you in identifying and making those changes.
We will work together to tackle any issues that stop you from fulfilling your potential or enjoying your life to the fullest.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor. This means I draw on several theories although I am primarily Person Centred (Rogers) focused. Some of the theories I include are, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and CBT. I use creative therapies where desired, working with art materials or sand tray work.Working creatively can be very helpful in allowing for a different freedom of expression without necessarily using words. I also include Gestalt exercises, which can mean being more active in sessions. Sometimes to express yourself vocally or physically can be freeing and allow you to find your voice or release your grief or anger.
