About me and my therapy practice

When painful memories, strong feelings and intrusive thoughts become too overwhelming to manage, it’s not unusual to feel anxious, panic-stricken, low in mood or just aware that something isn't ‘right’. On the other hand, you may feel a specific event, like a bereavement, the end of a relationship or traumatic experience has made life seem more like a struggle and less of a pleasure. Talking to someone about your issues and concerns is not a sign of weakness - it takes courage. I offer a safe, confidential space where you can speak openly about your feelings, without fear of being criticised or judged.

I am an experienced clinical psychotherapist and partner at a counselling, psychotherapy and well-being clinic in central Hove. Having worked for almost two decades as a professional musician, in 2001 I left the music industry to pursue a long-standing interest in mental health. My therapeutic approach is best described as Integrative because I have core training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and additional trainings in the behavioural (e.g. CBT) and systemic approaches (e.g. family therapy). I also have a Certificate in Working With Couples, accredited by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT).

In our first session you’ll have an opportunity to talk about your feelings, discuss your needs and get to know me and how I work. First sessions also allow practitioners to better understand their client's situation and to assess their suitability for working together. Whether therapy lasts a short time, or for a longer period, a good working relationship between therapist and client is imperative and you’re under no obligation to return after our first session. 198 Church Road is serviced by the 1, 1a, 6 and 49 bus routes (alight between Sackville Road and George Street). We are about 5mins drive from Hove railway station. Pay & display parking is directly outside the practice and in several nearby streets.
