About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified Person-Centered Counsellor with experience in using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and creativity activities when words and experiences are hard to express. I have extensive experience working with mental health and trauma within the supported housing sector. 

When there are challenges and pain in our lives it can create a range of feelings that can be challenging to accept and process, sometimes this can be a lonely and confusing place to become stuck, my sessions are a space to unravel what is going on in a supportive and friendly, confidential environment, where people can be themselves, go at their own pace, feel heard, and explore what is needed to move forward. Moving forward can look like peace, confidence, balanced life, a better understanding of self, or learning skills to manage mental health, but what is needed from sessions is unique to everyone. You will find me listening without judgment and empowering with empathy. Sessions are led by what is brought to the session which leads to an organic and flexible process. CBT uses worksheets, activities, and homework to learn new ways of thinking and living to bring freedom from your struggles and can be used in sessions for a proactive approach to making changes.

I work with 16+ teenagers, adults and student counsellors. There is a wide range of reasons to come to counselling which doesn't always fit into a box, however here are some areas I have worked with before; anxiety, depression, stress, life challenges and well-being, low self-esteem, ADHD, relationships, trauma, sleep issues, bereavement and grief and loss including life and job changes.  I work with all religions and beliefs, however, have particular experience working with the Christian faith and have connections with Charis Counselling, Brighton www.chariscounsellingbh.co.uk
