I work with couples or individuals who are struggling with emotional or relationship difficulties. I work in a collaborative and ethical way. I'm based in Hove in and I'm a fully qualified BACP registered and accredited psychotherapist. I offer a safe and confidential setting and work at your pace and follow your needs.
Some of the issues I work with include anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, bereavement, depression, abuse, self-esteem, stress, trauma, PTSD, divorce, affairs and relationship issues in general.
My initial training is psychodynamic and I use this approach to help you explore any ongoing problematic patterns of behaviour and feelings. I'm trained in CBT which can be used to work on a specific difficulty and has a goal for us to focus on. I have done further training in Trauma-focused CBT and have completed part 1 and part 2 of EMDR training to work on traumatic events.
In an initial session we can discuss your needs and think about what will be most helpful for you. Whichever approach you prefer, my aim is to help you develop your capacity to cope and move on from your distressing feelings.
I have been working as a therapist for over 15 years and in that time I have counselled in higher education and in the voluntary sector. I am both a supervisor and trainer in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I have a varied professional background in education, training and in business.
My consulting room is near a good bus route and parking is easy.
