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, 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 Humanistic Integrative Counsellor. This means I draw on several theories and I am primarily Person Centred focused. Some of the theories I draw on include, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and CBT.
I also use creative therapies where desired, using art materials or sand tray work. Clients tell me that working creatively is particularly helpful to them as it allows them to freely explore and find new insights.
I can also include Gestalt exercises where wanted which may involve being more active in the sessions. Clients find that expressing themselves through movement or vocally can be freeing and allow them to find their voice or to release strong emotions like grief or anger.
