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.

My areas of expertise include mood disorders (such as anxiety and depression); difficulties in relationships; addictive and compulsive behaviours; intrusive thoughts and OCD; pregnancy loss, infertility and postpartum depression; a history of sexual abuse .
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

COVID 19 is putting huge strain on all of us and we are finding ways to cope. However, if you feel old issues and feelings are cropping up for you, it may be time to root out the problem so the present situation becomes more bearable. EMDR can help do that. In an initial online session we can discuss your problems and find out what will be most helpful for you. Past overwhelming experiences in your life ( e.g. bereavement, sexual assault , bullying, medical or health experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, transport accidents) may be intruding in a way that feels unmanageable. If so, then a trauma-focused therapy will be vital to

If nothing changes, how will you feel a year from now? You may have an idea of where you want to go, or you might just know you want things to be different, and are unsure how. I can help you work out the direction you want to go, and how to start heading there. What could this mean to you? Less stress or low moods, improved relationships with yourself and others, perhaps more self-esteem and confidence, better sleep and a healthier mindset or maybe it’s about putting the past behind you once and for all.

Hello and welcome. I'm a warm and approachable counsellor offering sessions in person again, and I also really enjoy working online. Maybe you're feeling stuck, or unfulfilled, scared with all that's going on in the world, or feel low or hopeless. Perhaps you feel alone or struggle with worries. Perhaps you can't speak about what's happened to you or how you feel for fear it is too much for someone to hear. People have told me how safe and relieving it's been to share experiences with me. Initial meeting (50 minutes) £25.
