About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP registered, qualified, psychodynamic counsellor with a wide range of experience both in private practice and working for charities to provide counselling support. I am currently based at The Therapy Clinic in Hove.

I graduated as a Psychodynamic Counsellor in 2017 and have since accumulated over three hundred hours of practice, gaining experience in working with various presenting issues; including bereavement, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues and living with illness.

Before training to be counsellor I spent much of my professional career working in education working with specialist units, often with children who often presented behavioral problems and learning difficulties. After finding that establishing relationships with the students and investing time acted as a force for positive change, I found myself drawn into relational work and decided to become a counsellor.

I have since held a position at the MacMillan Horizon center, working with recovering cancer patients and family members of cancer patients. Working with these family members led to an interest in working with couples and I have since trained as a couples counsellor.

Practice description

My approach is based on understanding that there is a link between the past and the present, without assuming that there a direct cause and effect for a presenting problem. Instead there is an understanding that that feelings and learned responses from childhood can have an impact on how we respond and react in adult life.
