I offer confidential counselling in a lovely setting in Hove.
Before I trained as a Humanistic 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, East 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 attention and support to help you get where you would like to be.
My aim is to help you discover who you are and for you to understand yourself and your relationships better. If there are changes you would like to make, I will support you in a non-judgemental way to help you identify and make 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 an Integrative Counsellor. This means I draw on several different theories. I am primarily Person Centred focused and incorporate other Humanistic approaches including Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, and CBT.
I utilise creative therapies where desired, using art materials or sand tray work. Clients tell me that working creatively is particularly helpful to them allowing for a different freedom of expression and without the need to necessarily use words.
I also include Gestalt therapy which may involve being more active in the therapy room. Clients find being expressive, physically or vocally helpful in finding their own voice or to let out pent up frustration, sadness or grief.
