About me

It's not always an easy decision to come for therapy and you may decide to come to seek additional support for something that has been worrying you for a while or due to a current upset such as a relationship breakdown or bereavement. Depression, Anxiety and Panic Attacks are all common experiences for us when we experience struggles in our lives and therapy can help us to make sense of these symptoms.

I am a professionally qualified therapist with over 15 years experience working in Brighton and Hove. I offer short and long term counselling to individuals. I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), which means I work within the BACP's Ethical Framework. I also hold professional insurance.

The therapeutic relationship I offer allows you the time and space to explore some of the things that are causing you distress and/or anxiety. I can help you to explore your past and how it may help you to understand your current situation. 'The talking cure' gives you the opportunity to explore the way you are feeling and gain a more empowered sense of self.

I work within a safe and confidential setting, adhering to a professional framework and using my experience as a trained psychodynamic psychotherapist. I have a background in psychology and in mental health, working in the fields of trauma and mental health support alongside working as a psychotherapist. I work in private practice and have worked in a school and university setting. I also manage a range of practitioners working with women with vulnerabilities.
