About me and my therapy practice

If you need to talk about what's overwhelming or bothering you, I  am a naturally empathetic person, am curious without judgement and working as a professional I bring my life's experience into the therapautic relationship. Together we aim to put words and greater depth of meaning to painful or confusing feelings in a supportive, quiet space. I have therapy rooms in Hove and Chailey and work creatively where appropriate.  

When life is tough it can challenge our emotional health and well being, making us feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, depressed, angry or lacking in self esteem. Therapy is a courageous first step, I believe we all have the capacity to change and I am dedicated to helping others bring about healing and growth. I respond to and tailor my sessions to the client, whilst drawing on the theories of Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Person Centered Therapy, creating change through the relationship - which is therapy. 

My main qualification is a Post Graduate Diploma at Brighton University in Humanistic Psycotherapeutic Counselling. I have also completed courses on Transactional Analysis, Alcohol and Drug Addiction Therapy, Grief Therapy and PTSD. I work with individuals from teenagers to the elderly and across different cultures.

I have worked 1-1 as a Life Coach for 5 years before training as a Counsellor. In addition to my private practice in Hove and Chailey, I work in the NGO/voluntary sector on addiction therapy and I previously worked with a wide range of clients in a group practice in Hove. I offer an initial 30 min consultation with no obligation to continue.
