I work within a safe and confidential setting, adhering to a professional framework and using my experience as a trained psychodynamic psychotherapist.
It's not always an easy decision to come for therapy and you may decide to come to seek additional support for something that has been worrying you for a while or due to a current upset such as a relationship breakdown or bereavement. I am a professionally qualified therapist with over 15 years experience. The therapeutic relationship allows you the time and space to explore things that are causing you distress and/or anxiety. I can help you to explore your past and how it may help you to understand your current situation. I give you the opportunity to explore the way you are feeling and gain a more empowered sense of self.

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.

I lean towards the psychodynamic as it seems to offer very useful ways of understanding & therefore (re)-structuring relationships which may have become damaged/confusing over time.
The decision to try therapy can seem very daunting, but you have already taken the first step if you are here in this directory. Dealing with difficult issues, loss, bereavement, trauma, divorce/separation, identity , etc can feel utterly overwhelming. Initially, the prospect of sharing such experience may feel like a step too far. My own and clients’ experiences have shown me time & again that it is through the process of talking therapy that in sharing the burden the healing can begin. I have a passionate belief in the power of the wounded, with support, to find some reconciliation, with themselves, their history & in relationship

Initially trained in psychodynamic counselling, I am also a qualified clinical supervisor, systemic couple therapist, CBT and psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
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.

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.

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I look towards the past to make connections with the present.
I am a qualified psychotherapist. My practise offers a safe, supportive and confidential space for clients who work within the music and entertainment industries. Alongside my practise I work in the music industry so I can identify with problems that can arise from these areas which I've found to be both helpful and supportive to clients.

As a psychodynamic counsellor, I think a better appreciation of your early life experiences, can lead to a new perspective on your feelings now.
Taking the first step to talk to someone can feel difficult. Perhaps you're clear about how you feel or maybe you're confused and it's difficult to put your feelings into words. You may have felt this way for a while and you're not sure why. Maybe you're in a difficult relationship or you feel that your relationships don't last. Many of us struggle to make a life transition or cope with a change or loss in our lives. Perhaps you feel your life is lacking meaning. I can help you make sense of these experiences by understanding their meaning for you and help you gain a greater understanding of yourself in the process.

Thanks for stopping at my profile. I'm an experienced and dedicated psychodynamic therapist and I work primarily with adults in my private practice in Hove. I am very passionate about psychodynamic therapy as I've had the first-hand experience of how it can help people overcome and resolve a variety of issues, from mild to severe. Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth psychological intervention which is explorative in nature and focused on free expression. Often open-ended, it offers rewards for those who undertake it that can be life-changing, including a robust sense of self, easier relationships and an ability to live free of fear

I specialise in psychodynamic counselling but have experience working with more skills based approaches like CBT.
I believe the first steps towards counselling can be a very daunting prospect. If you are feeling anxious and reluctant about taking that step. I am here to help make the process an easy one. I have worked with many issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, stress, anger, bullying, to name a few. Together we can help to break negative cycles of behaviour or thought patterns. Helping to regain control of your life. Whilst creating a greater understanding as to why this might be occurring. If you find it difficult to talk, then together, we can help to find the words that may be unspeakable.

Sometimes painful memories, strong feelings and intrusive thoughts become too overwhelming to manage. When this happens, it's not unusual to feel anxious, low in mood or just aware of feeling "stuck". You might be thinking "what's happening to me", and with no apparent answer, this can make things can feel unpleasant, destabilised or even frightening. Or you might feel that something more specific, like a bereavement, relationship breakdown or traumatic experience have made life seem more of a struggle and less of a pleasure. This is often the point when we seek help from someone.

I am an experienced, BPC-registered psychodynamic psychotherapist based in Lewes and I work full-time seeing adult individuals.
Most people enter therapy with the entirely understandable aim of addressing and easing current symptoms of distress (depression, anxiety, difficulties sustaining intimate relationships etc) and receiving reassurance and comfort when life seems hard to bear. But I believe that we also need to explore deeper; that it is only by getting underneath these symptoms and trying to understand them and where they come from that real and lasting change can take place. I see the relationship between client and therapist as central and the process as a collaborative journey undertaken by us both.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Brighton, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
