If you’re feeling like a passenger in your own life, or struggling to make sense of things, I’m here to offer you support and to help you work through whatever has led you to this page.
Therapy with me involves working together to clarify issues, identify any barriers to change and to find ways of developing coping skills that address your challenges. My approach is empathic and accepting and is ultimately aimed at helping you to develop your own self awareness as a means to achieving your therapy goals.
I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space that is designed to foster trust and mutual respect. All appointments with me are in line with all BACP ethical and professional standards.
My experience as a therapist includes extensive work with addictive behaviours, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, sexual problems, identity and loss. My job is to help you make sense of what's been happening, to find solutions and to understand the root of the problem that has led you to seek help.
I offer face-to-face appointments in Central London and Brighton and Hove or can work with you online. I have lots of experience of online therapy and have worked with clients from all over the UK and around the world.
Whether you would like face-to-face or online sessions email or call me to arrange a free 15-20 minute phone appointment to find out more about how I work.

If you are struggling with addictive behaviour I understand the struggle of trying to stop or control it. Addiction does not discriminate and can affect anyone, from any walk of life. The behaviour will often make no sense to you, let alone your loved ones and it will often get worse if nothing is done to address it.
I have been practicing as counsellor and psychotherapist in Brighton and Hove for over 12 years and have helped many people in their search to find sustainable solutions that work for them. Email or call to find out how I can help.
I also work as a therapist with family members and couples who are struggling with addiction in the family. It is often the case that a 'parallel process' occurs and the dynamics of relationships can be affected. I understand the difficulties you might be having and have worked extensively with those that have a person close to them who struggles with an addiction. Please email or call for more information about this.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
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.
