I see clients at New Road Psychotherapy in central Brighton on Mondays and in a comfortable practice room near Lewes train station on Thursdays.

About me and my therapy practice

As a humanistic counsellor, I offer a non-judgemental, empathic space. I am client led and trauma-informed in my approach. I work from a place of wholeness, always assuming that, as long as you are breathing, there is more right with you than wrong with you. I work consciously with clients from a variety of background and life experiences. I am committed to uncovering the ways in which culturally embedded power dynamics show up within me. I am gender, sexuality and relationship diversity affirmative.

For me, the relationship is key, and an initial session would be a chance for us to feel whether I’m the right person for you. I love the Anne Lamott quote: ‘My mind is a bad neighbourhood that I try not to go into alone’. I don’t have all the answers, but I can be by your side as you visit some difficult places. And who knows, maybe some unexpected and joyful places too.

Practice description

Training: 

Pg Dip Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling - University of Brighton - 2021

Cruse Bereavement Training - 2019

Introduction to Somatic Experiencing – 2019

I am an associate tutor at the University of Sussex and have been delivering trauma training to a range of social and health care students, there and elsewhere, for over 10 years.  Alongside being an educator and counsellor, I am a writer, editor, writing mentor and workshop leader.

My first session

I offer a free 30 minute initial video or telephone consultation.

After that clients decide what they can afford on a sliding scale between £65-45. I am committed to offering long term therapy to those on a low income. I ask that the clients who can afford it pay more so that I can continue to support those who have less.

At my Lewes based practice £25 places are offered to clients in receipt of Universal Credit, Housing Benefit or out of work benefits.
