Hello and welcome. I'm a warm and approachable counsellor offering sessions in person again after nearly 2 years of working entirely over Zoom. I also really enjoy working online. You may have a clear sense of why you're considering therapy, but it might feel hard to put into words. Perhaps you feel really stuck, or unfulfilled, or low and hopeless, or you struggle with anxiety and worries or feel very alone. Perhaps you can't speak about what's happened to you or how you feel for fear it is too much for someone to hear. People have told me how safe it's felt to share experiences with me. Initial meeting (50 minutes) £25.

I have been practising as a Counsellor for 15 years, qualifying with a MSc (Hons). I am registered with BACP. I developed my practice whilst working in Inner City London, for the NHS in a large health centre alongside the mental health team. I am now in private practice. I have developed a creative approach to my work over the years, as I have a Jungian approach with a broad knowledge of integrated counselling styles. I see clients as people with problems and not just the labels. I am aware that the first step in seeking counselling can seem daunting. If you wish to talk, I am here.

Taking the first step to talk to someone can feel difficult. Perhaps you're clear about how you feel or maybe you're confused and it's difficult to put your feelings into words. You may have felt this way for a while and you're not sure why. Maybe you're in a difficult relationship or you feel that your relationships don't last. Many of us struggle to make a life transition or cope with a change or loss in our lives. Perhaps you feel your life is lacking meaning. I can help you make sense of these experiences by understanding their meaning for you and help you gain a greater understanding of yourself in the process.

I am an experienced psychodynamic therapist where I work with adults in my private practice in Hove. Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth process which is often open ended, guided by free association rather than a set agenda. This form of therapy can help you to gain an understanding of your own thoughts, feelings and beliefs in relation to your past experiences. Counselling is therefore an opportunity for self-exploration through your relationship with your therapist. I provide a compassionate and nurturing environment for you to be curious, at your own pace, about yourself and your life.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in BN41 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in BN41 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in BN41, or Child Psychologists in BN41.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like BN41 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in BN41 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
