About me

I have been working in the field of counselling/psychotherapy for about 25 years, during which time I've worked with men and women over a wide age range and with a variety of issues.

My training is within analytic psychotherapy, working with adults. I have worked within a variety of settings(CAMHS/Women's Centre), seeing people for both the long and short term.

I have consulting rooms in Brighton, near the Seven Dials and Brighton Railway Station.

My experience spans 25 years, working privately, as well as within CAMHS and the voluntary sector. I work with individual adults and couples.

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.
