About me and my therapy practice

I have always been passionate about the importance of support in achieving good mental health.  I provide an inclusive, safe and non-judgmental space for you to share your concerns and for the truth to be spoken.   I use a variety of techniques tailored to your needs and can also work creatively at times when it is hard to find the right words.  We work in partnership to enhance personal insight and empower you to facilitate change and at the same time to increase your interest and focus on self care for your physical and mental wellbeing.

Practice description

I have a private practice in Brighton and Hove and work with all age groups from young people to older adults, neuro-typical and neurodiverse.  I am interested in the whole person - body, mind, emotions, relationships, family and social context.

My first session

Our first session is slightly different.  I will ask various questions to find out more about how you got here and what you are hoping to get out of therapy.  Often events and patterns from the past influence what is going on today even when we don't realise it.   At the end of this session, if we are both comfortable to work together we will then move to meet weekly as continuity is very important to successful therapy.  The first session is priced at £50 for in-person sessions, £30 for online.
