I typically work with people struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, shame, guilt, self-criticism, addiction , dissociation, self-destructive tendencies, mistrust, commitment fears, and, ordinarily, much more besides. Such struggles often stem from multiple and complex life events and circumstances, including past and present abusive and neglectful relationships, abandonment, bereavement, bullying, trauma, racism, sexism, gender expectations, parenthood, study/work/financial pressures, and more existential challenges such as finding meaning and purpose in life.

Hello. My name is Ian and I am an addiction therapist. I've a Post Grad Diploma in Addiction Psychology & Counselling and I specialise in helping people to explore their drug and alcohol use in a safe and confidential, collaborative way. No judgements, just understanding. I'm in established recovery myself and I get it. It may be that you just want to cut down, get it under control, we can look at that, or things are getting a little more drastic- we can work with this too. I've years of experience, personally and therapeutically, and I know it's not as simple as just putting down the substance , there's a background we'll explore.

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 believe each client knows themselves best, therefore we will work together in a collaborative manner.

I specialise in the field of Addiction .
At times life can be difficult. Sometimes it may feel like life isn’t moving forward and you keep repeating the same old patterns and nothing changes. You may be dwelling on the past or worried about the present or the future. You may just be in a place of general unhappiness where you just don’t know what to do. In developing a better understanding of ourselves, increasing our awareness, and learning about how we operate as people we are able to make fresh choices, see new perspectives, change things, move forward and find our full potential. I believe in peoples capacity to thrive when they are given the right conditions to do so.

You may want to talk about anxiety, addiction or depression; you may be looking to cope with some life event such as a bereavement, divorce, redundancy or a relationship problem; or you might be feeling stuck in a rut and that you want more out of life. You will be able to explore what might lie behind the feelings you're experiencing, or what might lie behind certain thoughts or behaviours that you're not finding helpful. All these things can be helped and supported by talking confidentially.

Specialisation in addiction , however working with anxiety, loss, self-esteem and stress are also pivotal to my work, if you find yourself affected in any way by these issues then we can look together at how best you can understand your processes and make some changes to enable you to find freedom and peace.
I have been helping clients with a vast array of issues, concerns or life difficulties for roughly seven years, people from all walks of life and from all backgrounds, I do this as I am passionate about enabling change to occur for people and experience the freedom this brings. My speciality is unsuccessful attempts to change or alter chemical usage, problem behaviour and unhelpful thinking patterns that impact mental and emotional health—individuals who wish to explore and understand themselves and to look at making changes. I also work with all emotional and mental health issues as they often are evident in my speciality.

I worked as a Therapist at the Priory (now Elysium Healthcare) for 5 years and have worked at Brighton Housing Trust in their Addiction Recovery Therapeutic Community for 9 years.
We all go through some difficulties in life. Asking for help can be difficult , finding the right support can be even more of a challenge. As an Integrative Therapist, I use different modalities to fit my clients' needs, learning curves and communications styles, personalities and states of mind. I also adapt to fit my clients' physical health, integrating body and mind work within the process of change. I believe we can all benefit from the therapeutic relationship. it can be helpful when dealing with difficulties and as a boost to reach our full potential. I can also be a place and time to manage mental hygiene and general health.

I have a number of years experience working with women and girls, both around experiences of gender based violence and addiction , but also with broader themes that affect us all.
Specialist counselling service for women. Maybe you’ve been through a difficult patch recently, and you’re feeling low or anxious. Maybe you don’t really have anything specific to talk about, just a general feeling of not-quite-rightness. Or maybe you’ve been through something traumatic in your past that seems to affect you in your life today and you’re not quite sure how to deal with it. Or maybe it’s the opposite, you want more; more of life, more of your voice, more meaning and depth in your life or relationships and you’d like support to get there, and space to explore the journey.
