About me

As a therapist I profoundly believe that change is possible, and that every individual has the potential for change and growth. My hope is for us to develop a therapeutic relationship that will be healing and growthful for you. I offer a warm, empathetic environment in which to explore many issues including trauma, loss, identity, sexuality, anxiety and addiction. I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor from an arts background and I work in a creative, experimental and intuitive way. Together I hope we can create a space for you to be vulnerable and explore whatever you wish to bring. Counselling is an opportunity to work through your pain and hurt, or it can be a place to explore a new way of being, or to work through issues of resentment and anger. We can work at a pace you feel comfortable with and put your wellbeing at the centre of our sessions.

Mental Health Experience

As an LGBTQIA affirmative counsellor, with experience of working with trans and non binary clients, I also have experience of working with clients with alternative relationship models. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community I appreciate the political and societal stresses LGBTQIA individuals can experience living in a hetero normative society, and can support you if you are struggling with outside influences and cultural pressure.

Previously I have worked with clients in recovery from substance misuse and alcoholism and have a contemporary understanding of the concepts around drug and alcohol misuse. We can examine what you think the source of your substance or alcohol misuse is in a completely confidential and non judgmental space.

My mental health experience includes working with clients with a clinical diagnosis, such a schizophrenia and PD, who have a history of mental illness and I endeavor to work in a non-pathologising way; I work with the individual and not the diagnosis. Previously I have volunteered with both Cruse Bereavement Care and Mind Out counselling service for the last three years. Currently I work as a Support Worker with young women who've experience trauma, abuse and domestic violence.

I work on Lewes rd and in the Moolsecoomb area near the University of Brighton.
