About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified counsellor working across Brighton & Hove and Lewes. My counselling is inclusive and affirming of gender, sexual and relationship diversity.

Whether you are in the midst of a crisis, or wanting to come to terms with something that happened long ago, counselling can provide some calm and space in our busy lives and fast-changing world. You would be free to choose how you use your counselling sessions, and I will be alongside you as you explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences in any area of you life.

You might want to increase self-awareness and deepen understanding about feelings, relationships and behaviour patterns, and to develop strategies and resilience in response to life’s challenges. You might want to navigate through a difficult time, seek emotional healing, set yourself goals, or simply see what comes up. I can help you to explore new ways to manage trauma and distress, navigate a life transition, or explore relationship dynamics that are not working for you.

My counselling approach prioritises the relationship between the two of us as a safe and confidential place, and I will respect you as a whole person rather than focus solely on a problem, label or diagnosis. I understand that everyone is unique, and everyone has their own experiences and understanding of the world we live in, our relationships and the things that have happened to us.

I have been providing long and short term counselling in Brighton and Lewes since 2017, and I am an honorary counsellor for a local LGBTQ mental health charity and a secondary school counsellor working with young people aged 11 to 18.  I am BACP registered and a member of Sussex Counselling & Psychotherapy, a professional group of independent therapists.
