About me and my therapy practice

I can help with the following

Couples & relationship  Counselling: I am a fully trained couple's counsellor and have worked for Relate in Crawley for over 5 years. I work with couples on a wide range of relationship difficulties often around improving communication, ending repetitive arguments  and understanding how a current relationship is affected by past events. 

I also work with individuals who are not currently in a relationship, but feel they would like to understand and change how they are in a relationship.

Alcohol and Drugs:  I am an experienced drugs and  alcohol counsellor and previously worked for  a drugs and alcohol  counselling service in Brighton. I help people to understand what may be behind their alcohol or drugs use and look at ways of making changes which they are happy with.  For some people the change might mean giving up altogether, while for others it might mean reducing consumption.

Sexual abuse: I work as a counsellor at Mankind UK, a charity for men who have experienced sexual abuse. We will always work sensitively and you will not feel under pressure to talk about anything you don't wish to. For many survivors of sexual abuse, it's important tell somebody about what they experienced. Many survivors  have symptoms of trauma (high levels of anxiety and bodily reactions) which we can work to stabilise. I always work  in a way which keeps people safe, so we will deal with trauma symptoms first. 

My approach: I work collaboratively with clients in a warm, friendly, compassionate and non-judgemental way.
