About me

Due to the Cornoavirus pandemic, I have made some changes to what I am offering.

(1) Reduced fees to clients who need it during this time.

(2) All therapy is online or over the phone until social distancing requirements change.

(3) If you are struggling to process everything going on, we can have a one off session.

(4) If you work as an NHS front line staff member, I can provide free counselling.

How I can help

Many people go through periods of feeling distressed, trapped or overwhelmed by their thoughts and feelings. In times like these, it can be a real struggle to make sense of our experiences and to work out how to cope. Whatever is troubling you right now, I am pleased you have decided to seek help. Experience tells me just how difficult this choice can be, but also of the valuable opportunity counselling offers for change and personal growth. I am a professional counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP) with 5 years of experience supporting people with a wide range of issues and mental health problems including anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties. Together we can work to untangle your problems and build a bridge to a better place.

My clients’ needs are at the heart of my approach. This means that I give you the space to lead the direction of sessions while helping you focus in on your thoughts and feelings as they arise in the moment. Whilst exploring your difficulties, I can help you gain insights into the ways you relate to yourself and the world. This will give you the chance to start responding differently when you need to, empowering you to move forward.

A counselling relationship is different to any other and I imagine it is hard to get a sense of what it is really like by reading therapists' profiles. What I can say is that I will value you for the person you are, providing a safe and confidential space based on empathy, honesty and respect. I am compassionate, reflective and resilient and will walk with you in the depth of your struggles, offering the support you need to find your way.

Getting in touch

I offer face-to-face sessions from comfortable counselling rooms near the centre of Brighton.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to book an initial session. You can call or text on 07572133734 or click here to send me an email

First session

If you are interested in working together, please call or email me so we can look at arranging our first session. I recognise that you may feel nervous or unsure about what to expect so I am happy to answer questions and offer any clarification before meeting.

The essence of therapy is in the relationship between the therapist and the client. As such, it is important that you find a therapist who you feel you can really work with. With this in mind, I offer initial sessions at a discounted rate of £25

In our first session we can go over what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get out of it. You will be able to ask me anything you like to help you decide whether you want to go forward with me.

I would then usually recommend that we continue for another five sessions, reflecting as we move along on how the therapy is going so you can decide whether you need to extend.

Diversity

I hold a strong commitment to working with diversity in the counselling space, aiming to maintain a keen awareness of how the groups and cultures I represent may influence the relationship and therapy.

I have experience of working with people of various sexualities and gender identities (LGBT+) and from a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. With personal experience of being subject to discrimination and prejudice due to my mixed heritage, I work with an increased awareness of these issues.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

  • Humanistic therapies

Fees

It can be difficult to choose a therapist when faced with so many options. For this reason, I charge only £25 for the initial session and from there you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you.

I have decided to reduce my fees during during the Coronavirus pandemic so that they will be on a say what you can pay basis: £40 to £50 per session. I have the capacity to offer a further concession for students and people with low income. I am currently offering some free counselling to NHS staff on the front line.


Alternative locations (Does not currently apply)

If you are unable to travel easily due to physical restrictions or other limitations, I may be able to visit you at your home, place of residence or office. Fees for this can be discussed at the time of booking, but are typically £60.

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.
