About me

Sometimes we can feel like a passenger in our own life, things can feel out of control or you might not understand what has been happening. I’m here to offer you support and to help you work through whatever has brought you to this page.

As a therapist my job is to listen and offer an environment where you feel safe enough to process your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I provide a confidential and non-judgemental space that is designed to foster trust and mutual respect. This gives you the opportunity to be open and honest about what has been happening. All appointments with me are confidential and in line with all BACP ethical and professional standards. 

Therapy with me involves working together to clarify the issues that have brought you to seek help. We will identify any barriers to change, set goals, and find ways of developing coping skills that address your challenges. The overall goal of therapy is to help you live a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

My experience as a therapist includes extensive work with addictive behaviours, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, sexual problems, identity and loss. I understand that you can sometimes feel like a passenger in your own life or that things feel out of control. I will help you make sense of what's been happening and to understand the root of the problem that has led you to seek help. 

I offer face-to-face appointments in 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 the world. Working this way has proven to be very effective. Whether you would like face-to-face or online sessions email or call me to arrange a free 30 minute phone appointment to find out more about how I work.

ADDICTIVE BEHAVIOUR
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 10 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
