About me and my therapy practice
I am a Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist providing counselling and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children in East Sussex & London.
I specialise in chronic illness and disability, relationship and sex issues, life transitions, young people and creative therapy.
COVID-19 UPDATE ** I am able to offer sessions to clients via the telephone, Skype, Zoom, FaceTime and WhatsApp Video** Clients can then resume with face-face sessions once the lockdown is lifted.
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 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.
I practice from Hove, East Sussex from Tuesday-Thursday and Paddington, West London on Fridays.
I have a therapy dog Chloe, who is often in my East Sussex sessions. Chloe is a 10-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 Chloe in sessions please contact me.
I offer both long and short term services and your needs can be discussed at your initial appointment.
