As an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor I will work together with you to ultimately enable you to have a more rewarding experience of Life.
We all experience challenging situations and sometimes need the help and support of someone outside of our friend and family network.
Do you feel like you aren't coping? Are you struggling to understand your emotions? Do you feel stuck, anxious or depressed? Perhaps you want to understand repeating life patterns, relationships and seek change.
Counselling can provide the time, and space you need, to process your thoughts and feelings. I will support you to make sense of the past, find ways to cope in the present and explore changes you would like to make in your future, in a safe and confidential way.
How I work
As an integrative therapist, I will bring in different theories and techniques to support your counselling goals. This can involve working creatively, which is often powerful when something seems stuck.
I work with kindness, allowing you a safe, confidential non-judgement space to explore what is needed for you, in your own time.
Choosing the right Counsellor
In your search for a counsellor, it is important to how successful counselling will be that you find a counsellor you feel comfortable with and can trust. This is why I offer a low-cost 30 minute assessment appointment where we can talk about why you are seeking counselling, and you can see if you feel you would be able to work with me.
I offer both online or Face to Face Counselling in Brighton, UK (Pandemic restrictions permitting).

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.
