I work creatively, informed by Humanistic philosophy, Gestalt , Person-centred & TA theory in addition to being an EMDR therapist.
Deciding which therapist to choose based on their profile picture? Evaluating which therapist you could work well with is an added dilemma at a point where you might already be feeling overwhelmed. So here's the part where I explain about who I am & how I can help - I'm a therapist who understands how the therapeutic relationship promotes change, I will support you in navigating your anxiety, losses or interpersonal relationships by being authentically alongside you. Our connection will allow you the freedom to express your fears, as well as your hopes. Where our work together means you can begin to lead the life you want.

I adopt a person-centred approach, but I am also informed by Gestalt , Transactional Analysis, and feminist approaches to therapy.
Our mental health is connected with how we feel about ourselves and our life experiences. I offer a safe counselling relationship in which you can better understand these experiences, the challenges and struggles you face, and work out how you can respond. I will work to create a relationship with you in which you can feel safe enough to talk about difficult or painful experiences, thoughts and feelings. I will not judge you, no matter what you need to talk about. My aim is to help you start to connect with and feel differently about yourself. This can lead to greater self-awareness and acceptance.

I have been in practise from 2012, both in private practise and working for The Young People' s Centre Brighton.

I offer an empathic, non judgemental and respectful space. By building a relationship based on acceptance it becomes possible to look at, recognise and understand where problems in your life have arisen

I have a flexible and adaptable way of working drawing upon the core models of my training - Person Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis.
Life can be difficult and its easy to feel things are impossible, feeling unable to cope or out of control. You may want things to change, or want to change something about yourself. Counselling can help you understand and deal with difficult feelings and situations, counselling is not just about helping you solve problems its about helping you make positive changes. I have experience in a wide range of issues such as: Bereavement, Anxiety, Substance Misuse, Anger, Relationships, Self Harm, Low Self Esteem and Sexual Abuse. Together we can focus on whatever is important to you.

My Integrative Diploma qualification offered in-depth training in multiple approaches; Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt , Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic and Solution Focussed Therapy.
I am a warm and empathic qualified Integrative Psychotherapist (BACP registered), offering clients a welcoming space to explore difficult feelings without judgement, and with the aim to bring about positive change, through counselling. Our therapeutic relationship will be honest, and most importantly, equal. I will not be an expert on you, telling you what you should do, and neither will I be a passive counsellor who remains distanced. Instead, I will walk alongside you, offering empathy, insight and unconditional positive regard.

I have many years experience in Integrative Counselling and Gestalt Therapy, coaching, yoga, meditation, mindfulness and spirituality, along with a Bachelors degree in HRM and previous corporate roles in people management and operations management.
At times we feel stuck or alone, we are affected by loss, anxiety, depression or something else which stops us from living fully. Maybe we notice repeating patterns or habits that we don't know how to change. In these cases, working with an experienced professional like myself through therapeutic coaching and counselling can facilitate healing and help us to access the inner resources we need to let go of the past and create a the future we choose for ourselves.

I am a fully qualified Gestalt psychotherapist.
I believe that when we exclude parts of ourselves, we leave ourselves feeling incomplete, lost or frustrated. I aim to increase awareness by focusing on the present experience through your feelings, thoughts and senses, your connection with your body, as well as your ways of relating to others. To gain a better understanding of ourselves, it is sometimes necessary to embark on a journey of self exploration. As awareness increases, we can open up to the possibility of experiencing and feeling compassion for the aspects of ourselves we find hardest to accept, befriend them and ultimately aid in self healing.

Why come to see a counsellor? You might feel unsettled, something is bothering you but you cannot quite pinpoint what it is. Or perhaps you know what it is you would like to deal with and change. Whatever it is, I believe that anyone will benefit from counselling, even if it is to find out you do not need it!

Do you feel like you want to change something in your life? Do you feel stuck, like you want to move on but keep ending up repeating similar unhelpful patterns of behaviour?  Do you have a sense that an event/events from the past may be still stopping you from living your life to the full? Or perhaps you feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or struggling to control unhelpful behaviours? Well, you're not alone having these feelings. We all, at one time or another, experience struggles in our lives. I am a relational counsellor and I invite you to contact me to discuss how I can help you.

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. I currently have availability to take new clients.

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.

Gestalt Counsellors
Gestalt therapy seeks to integrate the client's behaviors, feelings, and thinking, so that their intentions and actions may be aligned for optimal mental health. The therapist will help the client become more self-aware, to live more in the present, and to assume more responsibility for taking care of themself. Techniques of gestalt therapy include confrontation, dream analysis, and role playing.
