About me

I offer you a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental approach. You may want to talk about anything from family or relationship issues, anxiety, anger, depression, loss or whatever is important to you. I am an experienced counsellor and member of the BACP and can provide you with short or long term individual therapy, whether you are an adult or a young person.

All of us experience emotional difficulties at some point in our lives. We can find it hard to cope. Counselling provides a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is happening in your life, explore thoughts and feelings, find ways to cope and help begin to think about solutions for the challenges you face. Counselling can offer general support or can focus on more specific issues such as generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, addictions, abuse, relationship issues, anger resolution or bereavement. You can use the time to explore what is happening for you.

With so many therapists you might find it hard to know who is best for you. That is why I offer a low-cost initial consultation where I can explain how I work and you can ask me any questions you may have. You can then decide whether counselling with me will be helpful for you. It will be your choice.

The type of counselling I offer is based on the person-centred approach. This means I trust that you have the capacity for healing and growth. I respect you as an individual and value your uniqueness. I work in a way that allows you to explore individual choices and decisions at your own pace. Together we can work towards short-term goals and solutions, or take a long-term relational approach.

As well as my private practice I also work as a senior practitioner and counselling manager at a Brighton based charity. For more information about me and how I work see below or visit my website (link above).
