About me and my therapy practice

As a response to the Covid-19 situation, I'm currently offering clients the options of sessions via Skype or Zoom, or meeting face to face in sanitised, socially distanced clinical rooms.

Maybe we've a nagging sense that there's 'something missing', feel shame about a specific event in our lives, believe we're out of step with how we're 'supposed to be', keep becoming overwhelmed by anger or depression, or have a very specific issue we want to tackle. Perhaps we feel that part of us is at odds with the rest of us.

Counselling and psychotherapy can provide the safe space that enables reflection, working through, and liberation. By connecting with the client in a non-judgemental way, that safe space is created, light can be shed on what may have previously been kept in the dark, and ways of coping, progressing and flourishing can be developed. There may well be laughter at times!

Having worked in TV and magazines for many years, I felt a need to 'go deeper', and 18 years ago retrained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor, and later as a supervisor of counsellors. I'm now Senior accredited, offering a wide range of approaches to counselling and psychotherapy in Brighton and Hove.

My original training background was psychodynamic,taking into account the client's past and how it keeps impacting now despite their best intentions, though I've also trained in CBT, NLP, hypnotherapy and mindfulness, Lifespan Integration, and more recently EMDR.

I don't take a 'one-size fits all' approach: whatever works for the specific client is the right approach. I work short and long term.
