About me and my therapy practice

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor, Supervisor and EMDR therapist in full time practice with over 12 years experience.

I work with a wide range of issues and I have extensive experience in working with sexual abuse, trauma, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), addictions, bereavement and loss. I work with individuals and couples.

As well as practicing privately I work as a counsellor at Mankind, a counselling service for men who have been sexually abused.

I am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for you to speak freely about the issues that are of most concern to you, in a way that is sometimes not possible with friends or family.

Sharing your thoughts and feelings with an experienced counsellor can help you make sense of life circumstances and lead you on a journey of self-awareness and personal growth.

I take the view that people are able to find their own ways of dealing with life’s challenges and I encourage you to trust in your ability to make changes and appreciate your own resources.

Often people find that the insight and awareness that comes from the counselling process can help them find a fresh appreciation of who they are and new ways of dealing with difficult issues. You don’t have to find yourself in a crisis situation before you can benefit from counselling.

I am a trauma informed person-centred counsellor and I have had a long interest in body psychotherapy and somatic psychology. My counselling practice is informed by the latest research on trauma and the body. I have over 20 years experience in bodywork as a qualified Shiatsu practitioner and I am interest in the fundamental relationship and interconnection between mind and body.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer a supportive environment where a counsellor can regularly discuss and reflect on their work. The focus of supervision may include client's material, the counsellor's process, theory, ethical issues and self-care. My aim is to enable more awareness, confidence and ethical competence in order to offer clients the best service possible as well as assisting and supporting the development of the counsellor.

I am an experienced and qualified supervisor with a Diploma in Relationship-Based Supervision of Individuals & Groups by Ibis Consultancy.

I am currently a supervisor at One Therapy Brighton. I have in the past worked as a clinical supervisor for Survivor’s Network, Cruse Bereavement Care, GamCare and BHT Mental Health & Wellbeing Services.

I can offer weekly, fortnightly or monthly supervision, individual or group.
