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

If a relaxed and understanding therapeutic relationship could benefit you, then please get in touch for an Initial Consultation.
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.

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 use different techniques and modalities based upon each individual/ relationship where we can work together to facilitate change.
My work focusses a lot on battling shame and empowering people to find solutions that work for them. I do not believe in a one size fits all approach and work with clients to normalise their experiences on an individual level as well as considering the greater context and how society plays a role in these presenting issues. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and work with GSRD clients. I am knowledgeable and welcome polyamorous and consensual non-monogamous structures as well as being trans, non mainstream orientations and kink friendly.

Perhaps you feel stuck, whether in a relationship or in your work situation.
I offer a protected space for you to explore your different needs and feelings, and reflect on your hopes and wishes - some of these may not yet be known. That's the magic: it's a place of discovery! I value working collaboratively to support your wellbeing and aspirations. This can include enhancing the quality of your relationships, being more creative in your life, and developing qualities that allow you to express what is most important to you. I have been in practice for nearly 30 years, working internationally with different cultures, and this has given me a broader perspective and appreciation of diverse points of view.

My aim is to provide a safe and respectful therapeutic relationship where painful life events and limiting patterns which may be preventing you reaching your full potential can be explored and this connection to self can be strengthened.
For most of us, there are times when we need support to deal with difficult emotional issues or a personal crisis. Finding someone you can trust is important as it is the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client that is the key to successful therapy. Through experience, I have come to understand that much of the distress in life is rooted in a disconnection from personal meaning, a sense that we are cut off from ourselves in some way. When we lose contact with our deepest needs we lose direction and relationships may also suffer.

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.

I am here to listen and to support you in exploring things that are creating challenges or distress in your life. Whether you’re struggling in a relationship , feeling worried, anxious, depressed, or experiencing loss I can help. Talking to a counsellor can help to stop thoughts circling around and around to alleviate feelings of distress and support you in working towards changes you want in your life by connecting or reconnecting with your own needs and feelings. Talking to someone who isn’t connected to what’s going on means you can explore thoughts and feelings without worrying about other people’s feelings or feeling judged.

Research shows that the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is the primary agent for therapeutic change, so it is important that you find a therapist who feels right for you.
I imagine that you are here because life seems particularly tough at the moment. Perhaps you are anxious about the future, or suffering with difficult memories from the past. Perhaps you have realised that the relationship patterns you have developed are no longer working for you and you would like to find a new way of connecting to your partner or others. Perhaps you need some practical guidance with a sex related problem. Wouldn't it be good if a trusted professional, who is also warm and 'real' could help you find a positive way forward?

I offer specialism in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity, and trauma.
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 have experience of working with anxiety and depression, of relationship difficulties, of loss and grief, as well as couple work.
When life is difficult, and there are hurdles that seem too hard to overcome, it can help to have someone to talk to. Someone who isn’t going to judge you, or tell you what to do, but will enable you to be how you’d like to be. I also work with couples - relationships can bring joy, but also challenges. Working together we can find a way to move forwards.

I have a broad range of experience, working with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bereavement, sexuality, and relationship difficulties.
To begin counselling can be a life-changing decision. You may want to address thoughts and feelings or specific challenges that can be hard to speak to others about, or perhaps made a decision to address the impact of past trauma, loss or shame. By sharing your story and emotional journey within the therapeutic space, it can be heard in a new way, as though for the first time. In this way, different narratives can be explored, allowing you to take greater ownership of your life and your future.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Brighton relationship counsellor, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counselling in Brighton.
