About me and my therapy practice
I am a Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children online and in Hove, East Sussex
I have extensive experience working with chronic illness and disability, relationship and sex issues, life transitions, abuse and trauma.
Taking the step to seek professional support can be a scary experience, with increased feelings of anxiety, delving into the unknown and trying to put your trust in an 'other'. I aim to create a safe space where you feel able to express yourself and be heard, where you can work through whatever has brought you to consider therapy and feel empowered to make changes and reconnect to you.
I use a variety of modalities tailored to each individual client and am particularly attuned to psychodynamic theories, unconscious forms of communication and working creatively with art, sand tray, visualisations, dreams, meditation, voice, breath, and body work.
It is often difficult to talk about the challenges you are going through, especially for children and young people. Creative work can facilitate this challenge and open up a different perspective for expressing and processing trauma and pain.
As a transpersonal integrative psychotherapist, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the foundation of the explorative journey. The transpersonal approach connects spirit, body, and mind. It looks not only at the pre-personal that affects your personal day-to-day existence, but also at the transpersonal and your connection with your soul.
Fees are on a sliding scale of £70-£90 per session
I have a therapy dog called Mabel, who is often in my sessions. Mabel is a 8 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel rescue dog. She is an emotionally attuned, affectionate dog who will happily receive attention or quietly lay on the floor during session. For more information about having Mabel in sessions please contact me.
I offer both long and short term services and your needs can be discussed at your initial appointment.
My first session
I offer a free initial 30 minute telephone call where we can briefly discuss your needs and if suitable schedule a first appointment.
At the first appointment I will ask a variety of questions to get an overview of you and what you would like support with.
I will explain a little more about the way that I work and if we choose to continue we can work on a time-limited or open- ended contract.
The first session is about us getting to know one another and seeing if I am the right fit for you. If we decide not to proceed I will aim to refer you to other therapists who may be a better fit.
