About me

I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), working within the BACP's Ethical Framework.  I use Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches as well as elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Gestalt.

So what does this actually mean?

As an Integrative Counsellor, I use elements of various different theories to form a unique approach to counselling.  The way I work with each client depends on the issues presented and the number of sessions we have, but above all, it depends on what works best for you. 

My aim is to help you feel safe and secure enough to explore and the way we work together will evolve from this exploration.

I have experience working with areas such as anxiety, depression, postnatal depression, OCD, phobias, addiction, abuse, family and relationship issues (including separation & divorce), bereavement, anger, low self-esteem and many more.

I offer both short and long term counselling and have daytime and evening appointments available.

I am based in the Brighton Consulting Rooms, which is located next to Preston Park train station.  Easily accessible for anyone based in Brighton, Hove, Falmer, Burgess Hill and beyond.

If you would like to speak on the phone or attend an initial meeting, so you can find out more, please get in touch.

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.

Accessibility

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.
