About me

I am an Integrative Therapist working with clients on an individual basis in person in Brighton, London and further afield online.

My work focuses on empowering you to make the changes you want, in order to live as your true, happiest self.

Are you struggling with depression, anxiety/panic attacks, an eating disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, substance abuse, low self-confidence, or trauma/PTSD?

There is an alternative to feeling sad, alone, hopeless and unheard. Through therapy you can:

  • Build resilience & self-esteem
  • Heal from unprocessed trauma
  • Improve your self-care and self- compassion
  • Identify and change destructive patterns in relationships
  • Let go of destructive coping mechanisms
  • Learn how to quieten your critical voice
  • Understand how the past is affecting you, and how you can move forwards in life
  • Overcome mental health difficulties and create a joyful and happy life

I offer a conversational, compassionate and holistic way of working and am able to support you in navigating your way through healing and recovery. I will offer psycho-education to help you identify behavioural patterns that are keeping you stuck in life, and together we'll find a way forward.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Client Testimonials 

"Beth came into my life when I really needed her and her approach has been perfect for me. I have changed in so many ways and she has inspired me as a client and as a professional. I shared with her things I never thought I would say out loud, I made connections I never thought existed and I have progressed and grown so much. She has such a varied technique and adapted to my needs over time, she has listened, remembered and truly cared. She has provided a person centred approach and worked with so many of my different goals as they changed. She was not phased by me bringing different issues and requests, she was adaptable and comfortable working with the unknown. I have had different counsellors in the past and wanted more input in sessions and this is something she offered. I felt like we were a team. I am so thankful and feel emotional that it is over.. but like she has said I am learning to be my own therapist. "

"I am deeply grateful to Beth. It was through her care that I built the confidence to make braver decisions in my life. Beth created such a warm, accepting space that right from the beginning, I felt comfortable and incredibly listened to. Each week I looked forward to our sessions, where Beth shared countless tools and ideas, helping me to live my life differently. Beth’s perceptive, personal touch is a true skill, leaving my mind a far kinder and more compassionate place. I honestly could not recommend Beth enough."

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
