About me

I am a fully registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and couples counsellor experienced in working in the NHS and private practice currently practicing in locations around Surrey and Sussex including Brighton and Hove. Approaching therapy can be daunting; I offer an empathic, non-judgemental space in which to explore the issues that challenge us.

Modern pressures can effect the way we live our lives and leave us feeling anxious, unsatisfied and overwhelmed, sometimes it can be difficult to share these feelings with those closest to us. Working with our early experiences and how they influence our current lives can be valuable in understanding how we feel at the moment and our patterns of relating with others.

I offer open ended and time-limited therapy in 50 minute sessions for both individuals and couples and suggest a free introductory telephone call can be a valuable way for you to decide what would best suit your goals for therapy. My approach is a humane and open exploration of current challenges and how our previous life experiences particularly those of childhood contribute to our patterns of behaviour in order to be free to make choices that will enrich our lives.
