Struggling with anxiety and depression can be a very lonely and painful experience. You may have a sense of sadness, hopelessness and despair. Life may seem overwhelming and unbearable. Or you may be feeling angry and frustrated. If you are experiencing any of these feelings then counselling can really help you to better understand the underlying issues which are causing these difficult emotions, and begin to move towards healing and growth. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I have extensive experience of helping people who suffer with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, childhood trauma, self-harm, relationship difficulties and family conflict. I offer face-to-face appointments in a safe, private and comfortable therapy room in Hove or Brighton where we will work together to explore the issue which are troubling you with sensitivity, compassion and without judgement. 
If you’ve never had counselling before then finding the right therapist can be confusing and intimidating, so it’s important that you take time to find the right therapist for you. As a first step I would invite you to contact me for a free 20-minute phone appointment where we can discuss what you would like to get out of therapy and you can ask me any questions you may have about how I work and what the process involves.

I am an integrative counsellor which means that I use elements of different therapeutic approaches to help you explore the issues which are causing you distress. My core training is Person-centred but I am also a qualified CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) therapist, and I use a blended approach to help you to understand the underlying issues which are causing you pain and to develop new insights and perspectives which will allow you to move towards sustainable change and healing.

I have lived in the Brighton & Hove area for over 30 years and have worked as a therapist both in private practice and for a local charity who support families struggling with issues such as poverty, ill health, learning difficulties, bereavement, family break-up and domestic abuse.
