About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Integrative counsellor and supervisor, working in Brighton for many years. A lot of the people I have worked with have come to counselling after periods of struggling to cope on their own. What has stopped them from coming earlier, were feelings of embarrassment and fear that others will judge them if they were to admit that all is not well. It takes courage to walk through a counsellor's door and speak about personal issues to a stranger. However, we often need to step away from the everyday and speak to someone outside of our immediate circle. I offer a confidential place to share your thoughts and feelings to help come to terms with or change what is troubling you. My focus is on what is important to you, and I combine person centred counselling and more cognitive behavioural (CBT) and solution focussed techniques to suit your needs. Our work together may involve exploring the influence of early experiences and how this impacts on current intimate relationships, or identifying and changing negative thoughts that we hold about ourselves to reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. Our contact may be short term to focus on particular troubling issues, or a longer-term opportunity to explore deeper feelings that are making you distressed and unhappy. Call me to arrange a half hour assessment, where you can ask me more about my experience and approach and get a feel as to whether I am the right counsellor for you.
