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, young people and children. My private practice is in Hove and I am a free lance counsellor in an organization in Southwick.
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 so that you can tackle any issues that stop you from fulfilling your potential or enjoying your life to the fullest.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, which means I draw on several different theories.
I also use where desired, creative therapies using art materials or sand tray work.
Clients often tell me that working creatively has been particularly helpful, enabling them to be free to express themselves in different ways and without necessarily using words.
I am also trained in Gestalt therapy which can involve being more active in the therapy room.
I have found that clients not only enjoy the freedom of being more expressive physically or vocally, but find it very helpful in finding their voice or letting out pent up anger for instance.
