I offer confidential counselling in a lovely setting in Hove.
I am an experienced and qualified Humanistic Counsellor.
Before I trained as a counsellor my background was in art and music. I have a broad life experience which helps me connect with and have a good rapport with all kinds of people from all walks of life. I work with adults and young people and have worked with children in school settings. I have my own practice and work in an organization that offers affordable counselling in Southwick.
In all our lives there are challenges and difficulties that can be hard to navigate or work through alone. At times you may experience problems or issues that can sometimes feel overwhelming or leave you 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 to understand yourself and your relationships better. If there are changes you would like to make, I will support you in identifying and making those changes. We will work together so that you can tackle any issue that stops you from fulfilling your potential or enjoying your life.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I draw on several theories. I also utilise where desired, creative therapies with art materials and sandtray work. Clients often feedback that using the sandtray has been particularly helpful to them and enables them to see themselves from different perspectives. When working creatively I see people come to new understandings about themselves, their lives and their relationships. Sandtray work allows thoughts and feelings to emerge in a fluid and spontaneous way and can bring new insights.
