About me and my therapy practice

I trained at the University of Brighton as a Psychodynamic Counsellor and gained an MSc in Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of the BACP and an Associate of Brighton Counselling Collective (BCC). As well as working with BCC in Hove, I also work privately in Guildford and other parts of Surrey. I work with clients who are facing a wide range of challenges, including depression, anxiety, self-harm, procrastination, attachment difficulties, bereavement, loss, generalised anxiety, panic disorder and stress. The psychodynamic approach involves exploring patterns of behaviour that have been developed as a result of past experiences, often from childhood. Through gaining an understanding of these patterns, and the defences we construct, we can begin to grow emotionally, developing more fulfilling relationships and a greater sense of mental wellbeing. In addition to the psychodynamic approach, I also employ techniques drawn from family therapy and CBT/systemic therapy.

Practice description

I currently practise predominantly on a ace to face basis from a location in central Guildford, although I do also offer an online service.
