I went onto join the team at MindOut (a counselling service for Brighton’s LGBTQ+ community) Subsequently I’ve been part of the NHS team at The Sussex Cancer Centre (RCH) .
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.

I typically work with people wrestling with anxiety, despair, anger, and shame; who struggle with guilt, mistrust, addiction, and dissociation; who are self-critical, self-destructive, and who feel trapped in repeated patterns of hurting self and others. Such feelings, behaviours, and patterns of relating 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 in life and death.

I'm a humanistic therapist which means I draw from multiple types of therapy to tailor the therapy experience to your needs. I think that you and I are both imperfect humans working together to gain understanding of your experience. I facilitate this exploration through compassionate curiosity and open exploration of emotions. I firmly believe you know yourself best; I’m just here to support. Whatever you feel like you need support with, I'm here to work alongside you with compassion and empathy (and sometimes a little silliness). I offer flexible scheduling online for people who travel regularly, or have difficult schedules.

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.

Many people come to therapy to explore particular features of themselves or their relationships that are troubling or distressing. Others have a specific issues they want to look at and perhaps change. Coming to therapy or couple counselling may feel daunting especially when feeling confused, depressed, anxious or upset. By processing painful or traumatic experiences, looking at relationship dynamics, addressing unconscious or limiting aspects of behaviour, potential new ways of coping with life's issues can often be found.

At times we can struggle with our circumstances and relationships. This may result in feeling confused and overwhelmed. Traumas past and present impact upon our quality of life and coping mechanisms can fail or become unhelpful. Counselling allows some time and space to focus on your issues and it can provide insight and clarity. It's an opportunity for honest open communication, without the fear of judgement and negative repercussions. This self-exploration tends to aid growth and healing, ultimately resulting in change and acceptance. I support you rather than diagnose or label, being with you through life's challenges.

I offer you a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental approach. You may want to talk about anything from family or relationship issues, anxiety, anger, depression, loss or whatever is important to you. All of us experience emotional difficulties at some point in our lives. We can find it hard to cope. Counselling provides a safe and confidential space where you can talk about what is happening in your life, explore thoughts and feelings, find ways to cope and help begin to think about solutions for the challenges you face. Counselling can offer general support or can focus on more specific issues.

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

Each professional in Brighton 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.

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 Brighton, or Child Psychologists in Brighton.

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.

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.
