If you're feeling overwhelmed, stuck or confused by why you do what you do then I can help.
Therapy can help you to improve your anxiety and self esteem, to overcome an addiction or habit you'd like to break, or to help you understand yourself better. And choosing a therapist that you feel comfortable with is key to a successful outcome.
Therapy isn't a one size fits all experience, and so the therapy I offer is an adaptive process known as Integrative Therapy. Together we will tailor how we work to exactly suit your specific needs and preferences. This ensures that you get exactly the kind of therapy that works best for you (and this can change over time as you do).
I am trained in a number of different kinds of therapy (known as 'integrative' therapy because it integrates lots of different models), which means we can pick and choose between styles to work in a way that suits your unique needs. This can involve talking about the past, the present, things you feel stuck in, and ways you would prefer to be, or using creative tools such as the sand tray, with images and objects to approach your issue from a direction you haven't tried before.
This integrated style of working means that our sessions can exactly match your needs, and adapt as the process progresses: together we can identify your concerns and your goals and jointly create a way to help you move forward.
I specialise in working with low self esteem and unhelpful coping strategies such as addiction, anxiety and a feeling of a loss of control. Therapy can help you to work out what you are really seeking in life, and to give you a sense of purpose and achievement by helping you to trust in yourself, and to develop self belief and confidence.
I offer appointments in a lovely space in Hove on Lansdowne Place, easily accessible via public transport and with metered street parking available nearby. Confidential appointments are available during the day as well as evenings and weekends to allow for therapy to fit into your life.
To get started you can call or email me to ask any questions you might have, get a feel for me or to make an initial appointment. A first appointment is a great way to test the waters about whether you would be happy to work with me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Individual sessions cost £50 and last for 50 minutes.
Payment is accepted via cash or credit/debit card at the end of each session.
Therapy can offer you a space to talk through anything that doesn't feel right in your life. It can serve many purposes: from allowing you the space to gather and sort your thoughts, to a safe space where you can come to terms with trauma, loss or a change in circumstances. Therapy will always be a unique experience to you and will adapt to your needs throughout the process.
Sessions are held once a week at a regular time and last for 50 minutes each. Your time in therapy will continue for as long as you decide – from a few weeks to as long as you feel is helpful to you.
