Initial session free. Life is messy. Sometimes - it can feel unbearable. If you are not living the life you planned or struggling emotionally, perhaps I can help.
I have extensive experience supporting people in the throes of emotional distress, such as depression, anxiety, mid-life crises, post-natal depression, relationship issues, addictions, trauma, low self-esteem, grief and loss as well as spiritual exploration and difficult and confusing spiritual emergencies.
I believe passionately that periods of acute emotional pain, in which we feel ‘lost” and without ground, if approached with compassion, curiosity and an openness to the possibility that your pain may have something important to say, can ultimately be a catalyst for positive transformation. During therapy, together, at your pace, we shall turn towards your pain, to try to understand the root of your psychological distress, in contrast to other approaches such as CBT. So whether you are in the immediate storm of a crisis or plagued by an earlier trauma, together we can work towards a better understanding and decreasing the distress in your life.

I offer both long and short term work from my practice which is based in central Brighton. I also have a reduced rate for those on low incomes .

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.
