I work with and have a good rapport with all kinds of people from many walks of life. I believe in the value and effectiveness of counselling and I think that it is one of the most useful tools there are to gain insight and to live a better life. I help people with many issues including anxiety, fear and depression.
I have worked in several organizations in Sussex, counselling young people and adults. I now work in private practice to offer counselling and supervision in pleasant, quiet surroundings in both Brighton and Hove.
Life can be a real challenge at times and difficulties can crop up that can be hard to navigate or work through alone. Sometimes problems can feel overwhelming or leave us feeling stuck and talking to someone who is non-judgemental and understands 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. Coming to counselling is a way to give time to yourself and to feel supported through life's ups and downs. It is an opportunity for you to look at old patterns or ways of being that may no longer serve you, to find new ways to live so that you can enjoy and get the most out of life.
Through counselling you will discover new perspectives and gain new awareness about yourself and your relationships. My aim is to facilitate you in finding out if there are changes you would like to make and helping you to make those changes. Together we can explore and tackle any issues that may be holding you back or stopping you from living up to your full potential.
