Working with individuals and couples, online, I am an LGBTQ + affirmative, trauma-informed psychodynamic therapist. Therapy involves a joint inquiry into the underlying beliefs and habitual ways of being and seeing that we carry. Regular sessions provide a reflective, confidential space for self-exploration and support, in which to look together at any areas of concern to you. As we begin to make sense of troubling, confusing or conflicting feelings and experiences, it can become possible to discover greater ease, choice and fulfillment in the present.

A psychodynamic therapist, I bring specific training and experience in trauma, in terminal and chronic illness & bereavement, alongside specialisms in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD) and LGBTQ + affirmative practice. I have particular experience with supporting people through the process of questioning and discovery their gender identity. My work is deeply informed by my long-term past occupation as a gardener. This work taught me a great deal about presence. It taught me also about the nature of transformation, of the gains and the losses that can come with it, and the deep connection between the two.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed or experiencing low self-confidence? Would you like to examine your feelings about a bereavement or life event? Perhaps you wish to look at difficulties in your relationships with your partner or family, or maybe you’re considering how your past affects you now, as an adult. I can support you as you explore these issues and a wide range of other challenges. I offer effective, compassionate counselling in Brighton and Hove. At the start of our work, we'll identify what you want to achieve from counselling. Whether your aims are abstract specific, we can work towards them together.

I imagine that you are here because life seems particularly tough at the moment. Perhaps you are anxious about the future, or suffering with difficult memories from the past. Perhaps you have realised that the relationship patterns you have developed are no longer working for you and you would like to find a new way of connecting to your partner or others. Perhaps you need some practical guidance with a sex related problem. Wouldn't it be good if a trusted professional, who is also warm and 'real' could help you find a positive way forward?

What do you need? Perhaps you want a space to explore your relationships, understand your anxiety or depression or simply a safe space to reflect. Perhaps something is holding you back and blocking or limiting your growth and expansion. Or maybe you want how you feel on the inside to match how you are on the outside; in your everyday experience.

We all find relationships and intimacy challenging - being close to people challenges our beliefs about ourselves and our trusted ways of relating do not always serve us well. When we get stuck over and over again in our intimate, family or work relationships, it is often due to our deeply buried or unconscious beliefs about ourselves. Many of my clients express what a relief it can be to share their problems and to realise that they are not weird or sick. We all struggle for a reason. In a group it can be especially helpful to realise that you are not alone - there are other people struggling with 'what it means to be human'.

There are many reasons why people decide to come to therapy. You might be feeling overwhelmed and anxious or stuck and frustrated and you’d like to get clearer about what is bothering you. Or, perhaps, you know what you want to explore and you’d like some help to address the thoughts, feelings and behaviours you find challenging. It can be both supportive and practical to take some time each week to sift through the complexity of your life and come to understand yourself better. What therapy provides is a space to be really heard, with a deeper and more focused attention than that available in everyday conversations.

My specialism lies in working with issues realted to being LGBTQ .
Counselling can be an exciting and challenging journey, dealing with what's happening right now or looking at those important moments from your past. I will support you on this journey to understand yourself better, giving you the potential to grow and develop self-awareness. You and I will look at how you think, feel and behave, which can give you focus on which parts of yourself you want to develop, and which parts you can use to support the work you do. This is very important and useful on the counselling journey. You will have the space and time, to work through and develop your understanding of yourself, to feel more at ease.

I welcome members of the LGBTQ community and offer support for related issues of gender, sexuality and relationship diversity.
Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel really daunting. It is important to feel safe and not judged when talking about difficult things, and my aim is for us to develop a relationship where you can explore whatever it is that you need to. There is not an exhaustive list of the reasons for coming to counselling initially but one thing is sure and that is it begins with building trust and beginning to speak openly.
