About me

I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, accredited by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). My work is also informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I offer open-ended or time-limited psychotherapy and counselling to adults and young people. My counselling and psychotherapy practice is based in central Lewes, within easy access of the train station and bus routes. I also practice in Brighton from the Rock Clinic.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy looks at how the events and experiences of our past relationships and developmental history may unconsciously influence and be echoed in current relationships. These underlying dynamics can be revealed in many ways, through relationship difficulties, behavioural patterns, emotions, bodily symptoms, dreams, or in the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship itself. I will explore these issues and patterns with you, within a confidential, accepting, boundaried, supportive, and collaborative relationship. I aim to help you to deepen your self-awareness, by experiencing and making sense of what underlies your distress and difficulties with life, and to support you with making different choices, navigating change, or living more fully in your existing circumstances.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience of working in both private settings and public sector secondary care, including Sussex Partnership Foundation NHS Trust (providing time-limited and open-ended psychotherapy to clients presenting with somatic or functional symptoms of neurological nature, e.g. dissociative seizures, movement impediment), higher education (providing time-limited CBT counselling to University students) and local counselling agencies (The Rock Clinic and pregnancy crisis centres offering support and advice to individuals or couples facing pregnancy related difficulties).
