Before becoming qualified as a counsellor my background was in art and music. I have a wide life experience that helps me have a good rapport with all kinds of people from many walks of life. I work mostly with adults and believe it is in the quality of our relationship that we form that makes our work together effective. I offer counselling and supervision in a quiet and pleasant premises in Hove.
In everyone's lives there are challenges and difficulties that can be hard to navigate or work through alone. At times we all experience problems that can feel overwhelming or leave us feeling stuck. This is when talking to someone who understands you can really help.
Counselling is not always about going back into the past; it is also about being in the present and considering your current thoughts, behaviours and feelings.
Counselling can make a big difference to your happiness and quality of life, by giving you a better understanding of yourself and by improving your relationships. You may want to come for a few sessions to explore a particular issue or come longer term depending on what feels right for you.
My aim is that through working together in a comfortable and confidential space you will be able to create the life you want. If there are changes you would like to make, I can help you in identifying and making those changes. We can explore what is or isn't working for you in your life and tackle any issues that may be holding you back or stopping you from living up to your full potential.
