Coming to counselling allows you to the space and time to think deeply about yourself and your relationships. I hope to help you do this in a warm, open and thoughtful way. The focus of our sessions is your needs which we will talk about throughout our work. We may consider patterns of relating to others, particularly those patterns of which you are unaware. Often our work together will explore how past experiences might be affecting the present.
I can help you work through a range of difficulties - my experience includes relationship problems, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-harm, eating disorders, parenting and bereavement. This can be on a short-term or long-term basis.
Sessions typically take place at a fixed time, once a week and last for 50 minutes. Our work can be on a short-term or long-term basis. I use practice rooms in two Brighton and Hove locations - near Seven Dials and in the Fiveways area.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
