I have extensive experience working with clients who have encountered issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship breakdown, sexual abuse, LGBT+ issues with family and community. In my background as an NHS staff counsellor I worked with workplace burnout, difficult family/ workplace dynamics, trauma and cross cultural issues. Most difficulties cannot be reduced to a lable, as you are a multi faceted unique human being. I will support you in developing a greater awareness of your own unique and real, values, beliefs, and meaning systems developing a more healthy and harmonious sense of self.

My work with adults covers areas such as addiction, bereavement, meaning in midlife, self-esteem and self-loathing, low mood, anxiety, health-based trauma and relationship breakdown.
Understanding ourselves, the decisions and choices we make and our relationships with others can sometimes be baffling. You may find yourself acting or behaving in ways that you struggle to align with your personal principles, wishes or desires. At times, your experience may suggest that your way of being doesn't blend with the world around you and you might find yourself meeting resistance from people or institutions. Therapy gives us the chance to explore these challenges together. We can look at your relationships with others and the meaning you make of them, helping to develop your insight, self-awareness and self-acceptance.

I specialise in helping individuals deal with common life problems including depression, relationship breakdown and bereavement .
Are you feeling depressed; confused about what you feel; ground down to the point where you feel unable to cope; or simply wishing you could find someone who would genuinely hear you? Individuals choose therapy for a variety of reasons and often the biggest hurdle we face is an inner voice telling us our problems are nothing special and we should just get on with life. I provide a safe, empathic environment where you can find your voice and express your concerns without fear of being judged and to provide you with the means to work out your own answers and create the life you want.

The decision to try therapy can seem very daunting, but you have already taken the first step if you are here in this directory. Dealing with difficult issues, loss, bereavement, trauma, divorce/separation, identity , etc can feel utterly overwhelming. Initially, the prospect of sharing such experience may feel like a step too far. My own and clients’ experiences have shown me time & again that it is through the process of talking therapy that in sharing the burden the healing can begin. I have a passionate belief in the power of the wounded, with support, to find some reconciliation, with themselves, their history & in relationship

I work with those who have experienced loss of any kind - a bereavement, a job, a relationship, a pet, your health, or the feeling that you have just lost your way and don’t know where you are heading.
These past two years have been very tough. Life continues to be uncertain, and this has had an impact on all of us. For some much has changed, and for others it has been devastating. Have you lost someone close to you, or perhaps your job or your home? Has a sudden or unwanted change left you not knowing where you are going? Are you just hoping for life to get back to normal? On the other hand, for some of you this pandemic may have been the prompt you have needed to look at things that have been troubling you for some time. Either way, do you feel you need to have someone you can talk to about how you are really feeling?

You might be asking yourself whether what you feel is "normal" and you are finding it difficult to speak to those around you for fear you might be a "burden".

Bereavement Counsellors
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

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