My belief is that most of us know deep down, most of the time, what we need and how to go about getting those needs met. The hard part comes when our needs are at odds with the needs, wants or expectations of others – and that can be family, friends, partners, work colleagues, neighbours or wider society. Dealing alone with the stress of making decisions and changes that will impact on you and others can lead to anxiety, anger, depression and even suicidal thoughts. If you want to change the way you feel about life, talking about things is often a good first step.

I specialise in Anxiety, Depression and Family Conflict and additional expertise supporting students with Academic Anxiety including those with Dyslexia & Autism Spectrum.
If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a reduced rate intro session of £15 where we can meet

Whether you are suffering from increased anxiety or overwhelm, depression, burnout, relationship difficulties or marriage problems, you don’t have to go around feeling like this. As a therapist with additional and diverse life skills and interests, I can help you feel better, and quickly. Every situation is unique, but when working with you, I will aim to get to the nub of any problems quickly and effectively, and to provide practical solutions. For deeper trauma we can shift into a longer relationship, using IFS or Narm. I can show you how things can be better for you, using evidence based and trauma-informed methods.

I help people look at all aspects of their lives, relationships, identities and I have experience of helping people with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, ADHD, childhood abuse, loss, trauma, drug and alcohol use and other addictions.
I believe that every person has their own unique story. What happens in our lives as our story unfolds shapes who we are, how we see and experience the world and how we feel about it and fit within it. Counselling can help people discover who they are, learn about their relationships, understand past events, help them get a deeper understanding of themselves, who they are and learn new ways to live their lives. Counselling can help people change from feeling that their story is being written for them and learn how to start writing it for themselves.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Brighton anxiety counsellor, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counselling in Brighton.
