I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist with 10 years experience. I have a special interest in how childhood experiences can continue to affect us in adult life. You may be going through a particularly difficult situation: separation, trauma, or other huge life change or you may just have the feeling that something isn’t quite right without knowing how or why. My approach is grounded in analytic theory though I am also influenced and have trained in attachment and trauma based approaches and work in a relational way.

My therapeutic approach is a mixture of Psychodynamic, Attachment-based, Culturally Sensitive and Relational. I work mainly with adults but also work with children from the age of 13 to 16 and young adults (17 to 25). I have been a university counsellor for 4 years and have also worked in secondary schools.

I have worked with people experiencing a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, co-dependency, loss, bereavement, eating disorders, anger management, P.T.S.D, substance misuse, family breakdown, relationship issues, suicidal ideation, transgender issues, historic or present day abuse and many others. I have a private practice in Brighton where I see clients once or twice weekly for short term or open ended therapy and I also see clients online. I also have some concessions available for lower cost work with students or people on low incomes during the day both online, by telephone and face to face in Brighton.
