About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist offering psychotherapy, clinical supervision and psychological consultancy.

In my work I combine a supportive, non-judgemental style with being appropriately challenging creating an environment that is accepting and empowering.

As a clinician, I draw on a set of complimentary theories in psychotherapy aiming to facilitate change and growth. My approach is relational, meaning I see the relationship between client and therapist as a vital aspect the therapeutic process and outcome. My work is collaborative and respectful of the client’s pace and inner resources and I work towards forming a relationship based on mutual trust in a safe and confidential environment.

I have many years of experience in the fields of therapy, group work and applied psychology and have been formally trained in both psychotherapy and counselling. I am experienced in working with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have trained and worked as a clinician in Australia, Germany and The Netherlands, as well as in the UK. I have previously worked in the charity sector and as part of a multi-disciplinary mental health team in the NHS. I am the co-founder of Brighton and Hove Psychotherapy, a counselling and psychotherapy practice with premises in Hove and Lewes.

My academic and professional training in this field includes:

  • MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (Distinction)
  • International Certification as a Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist (CTA)
  • BA (Hons) in Counselling (First)
  • Diploma in Counselling (Distinction)

I am multi-lingual and culturally aware and welcome clients from any cultural background; I have a personal and clinical interest in issues relating to cultural identity, a sense of belonging and feelings of being ‘uprooted’.

As a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and I abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice; I am also a member of the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) and the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA).

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
