About me

Feeling troubled? Interested in exploring repeated & troubling patterns or meaning in life?

Psychotherapy offers a way to better understand your self and your life through being heard and witnessed. When this happens within a professional, caring and confidential relationship, it can help you manage difficult life experiences and bring greater contentment.

Most schools of wisdom recommend "Know thyself". Psychotherapy is a specific kind of conversation aimed at helping you to know yourself. better. Difficult relational experiences early in life (complex relational trauma) mean that we don't get to know ourselves and struggle to find meaning, purpose and direction in life.

Psychotherapeutic conversations are not easy or comfortable but nothing worth achieving ever is.

I do not offer a cure, simply my engaged presence in conversation so you can get to know yourself. Sometimes such witnessing can be curative.

There is a need to commit to a regular space in your life for this work and it needs to become somewhere you go to remember, think and experience. Such conversations are unlike those with friends and family because someone trained to help and ask the right questions is needed, someone not invested in maintaining your current life. I work with individual adults, not teenagers or couples.

The benefits of psychotherapy derive from the life-changing magic of knowing your own psychology. I will work with you to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can speak openly and be heard.

The capacity to act with integrity rests fundamentally on the integration of the personality (Margaret Cohen)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

Mondays through Thursdays until late evening

Further information

Therapy is a commitment on both sides so once we agree on a time slot, I charge for missed sessions. If you let me know in advance when you have to miss a session, I will try and offer an alternative time during the same week.

I work online and in person in central Brighton and Portslade. Unfortunately there is no disabled access at either practice.

My ethical stance and professional values are governed by my passion for, and belief in the value of psychotherapy. To this end, I work hard to offer a confidential and supportive environment informed by my professional memberships of the United Kingdom Council on Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

As far as your data and confidentiality are concerned, I retain and process only the absolute minimum information needed to offer you a service in line with professional and legal requirements.
