I'm an Integrative Counsellor with past experience in general practice, mental health and domestic violence settings.
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 a pragmatic and human approach to psychological distress. I believe we all have times in our lives when we need to sit with another person and work out what is going on and how to move past it. I offer this with warmth, compassion and experience. My background is in physical health and I am able to offer a holistic approach to therapy. I have experience working with people who also have long-term physical health conditions, and am very aware of how these aspects interweave and impact on the person. I work with abuse issues and have experience working with domestic and sexual violence , to gain clarity and understanding.

I work alongside people who are dealing with all kinds of issues, including, but not limited to, anxiety, relationship issues, depression, family issues, career and life choices, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce, abuse , anger management, bereavement, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, sex and sexuality, LGBT-related issues and stress.
Sometimes, life feels a little out of balance. It's important that we find our own answers to the things that concern us about our lives. It's also important that we find a way to do this that suits our preferences, our needs and our styles. It's vital that we find a place where we can consider those questions about our lives and the situations we find ourselves in with patience, compassion and care. Finding a counsellor or psychotherapist to be with us can bring enormous benefit during difficult times.

I've been counselling since 1989, and have extensive experience of working with sexual abuse and trauma, parenting and attachment difficulties, identity and relationship issues, depression and anxiety, bereavement and loss. I don’t claim to be an ‘expert’ in any of these areas because everyone's response is different and what matters is you and your own unique experience of these difficulties. I am committed to collaborating with you to find the resilient, hopeful part of yourself that becomes expert in managing your challenges and is motivated by the smallest signs of progress towards your preferred future.

I help people look at all aspects of their lives, relationships, identities and I have experience of helping people with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, ADHD, childhood abuse , loss, trauma, anger, drug and alcohol use and other addictions.
I believe that every person has their own unique story. What happens in our lives as our story unfolds shapes who we are, how we see and experience the world and how we feel about it and fit within it. Counselling can help people discover who they are, learn about their relationships, understand past events, help them get a deeper understanding of themselves, who they are and learn new ways to live their lives. Counselling can help people change from feeling that their story is being written for them and learn how to start writing it for themselves.

In addition, counselling those suffering work and study related stress, PTSD, abuse , loss and bereavement, low-self esteem and confidence.
Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel daunting. Sometimes it's important to talk with someone separate from your family and friends, someone who is there solely for you and with you. I provide a space for us to develop the environment where you feel safe and not judged. You may be experiencing trauma or bereavement, the effects of historical issues, or coping with the current pandemic. A lot of people come to therapy because life just feels unmanageable and are struggling with day to day living. The session will be held by me but led by you.

I work safely with anxiety, depression, sexual violence , relationship issues, sex and sexuality, domestic abuse , trauma, PTSD, abortion and pregnancy loss.
It's not easy accessing therapy and it's natural to feel worried about being understood or having to explain aspects of your identity and culture to a stranger. I offer a space where you don't need to do that, so we can get to work on the things you need help with. I have a gentle, trauma-informed approach where I put your safety first and where you can progress at your own pace. Sessions are always collaborative, which means that your input and feedback are a key part of the process as you're the expert in your own life and what you need to feel better.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Brighton domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Brighton.
