At times, we may all feel confused and overwhelmed with emotional difficulties, as I have also experienced. As a counsellor I will offer you an opportunity for you to talk and be heard, in a safe, compassionate and supportive way.​ I will work with you, at your pace, in a confidential space where you can explore what's going on in your life, increasing your self awareness, enabling you to connect to your thoughts and feelings. I offer flexible appointment times and have experience of working with a wide range of people. Some of the issues people have brought have included: depression, stress, relationships, trauma and bereavement

Sometimes life can be really hard. Everything feels like too much, and we wonder how we can keep going. We can get overwhelmed with guilt for not coping, shame for having failed in the past and we can end up not really liking ourselves very much. We might self-medicate with substances which we know don't really help, but they seem better than nothing.

People seek therapy at different points in their lives and for many unique reasons. You may be feeling anxious, depressed or 'stuck'. There may be a sense of not reaching your potential, or difficulties in a relationship. It may be challenging health or mental-health. You may have experienced a transition, loss or bereavement, wish to work through difficult life experiences, or make sense of your own behavior patterns... ​I work with several therapeutic models and will follow your lead to work in a way most helpful to you. In a safe, collaborative relationship we can work together to understand where you are and what you need.

No matter what brings you to therapy, it is important. You might be finding that distressing thoughts or feelings are getting in the way. Or perhaps you experience numerous unpleasant physical symptoms. Emotional response is a normal response, but understandably, it can be unpleasant, and might feel uncertain what to do when it happens. Sometimes we all need a bit support and guidance; we don't have to deal with everything on our own, especially when it gets tough. I offer evidence-based therapies within a context of kind, supportive therapeutic relationship. I currently work for mental health organizations and in private practice.

I'm an experienced and engaged therapist working with people whose current strategies of relating and coping are no longer working. As children and throughout life, we learn to behave and feel in certain ways, whilst these patterns are necessary to survive initially, they may get stuck in repeating similar relationships and situations. Therapy supports awareness, adaptation and letting go of what is no longer helpful.

Hello I’m Selene. I have 20 years of experience as a counsellor. I am a warm and open-minded person with a good sense of humour. I offer a welcoming and confidential space where we can together create an empowering therapeutic relationship. I believe you are an expert in your own life and my role is to support and challenge you reconnecting with yourself and your strengths. Counselling is an opportunity to give yourself the time and space to imagine who you want to be. Sometimes fear and shame make us stuck and disconnected from others and not able to ask for what we want. Therapy can help you free yourself and open connection.

I am a down-to-earth, empathic counsellor, offering you a space to feel heard, understood and supported. I can help you make sense of your life and how you feel - exploring how your past impacts your present, how to cope today and how you might move toward a better future whatever that might mean for you. I will take your feelings and issues seriously but I will also laugh and swear with you if that feels right for us! There can be humour and lightness in therapy, as well as challenging emotions and depth. I will be there with you through whatever comes up, with acceptance and compassion.

Life can sometimes feel overwhelming: anxiety, lack of self-esteem, self-criticism, grief, life changes – are you struggling with issues and difficult feelings that are hard to manage alone, perhaps even more in this current climate? Attentive, respectful and caring therapy can be a powerfully supportive and healing choice towards regaining a sense of hope and purpose. Together we work to gently uncover what you need to be able to live in a more fulfilled, meaningful and satisfying way.

If you've got problems, I can help.. As a therapist I am happiest when I am genuinely able to make a difference to someone and help them feel better. I have had a great deal of experience of working with many different people, each one of them with their own unique story, and their own way of seeing the world, each one of them also with the problems that sometimes arise for all of us as human beings trying to live the best we can. Maybe you feel anxious and don't know why? Perhaps you've had things happen that are still affecting you?

As a psychodynamic counsellor, I believe our earlier life experiences persist in affecting our ways of behaving, relating and feeling in the present, and in ways that are sometimes unconscious. Yet whilst our pasts may be a key to understanding ourselves better, good counselling should help us make changes that allow us to live more fully in the here and now and influence our futures. Of course, therapy can bring up difficult feelings, but it can also be a useful, rewarding and enjoyable process for those who want it!

Deciding to seek therapy can seem like a daunting process. Not only are you bravely taking steps to face the challenges in your life, you are choosing to share your unique story, perhaps for the first time, with a complete stranger. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, life transitions, or another form of distress in the complex spectrum of human suffering, or maybe you want to discover more of who you are. Whilst not aiming to solve your problems, I hope to help you develop greater self-awareness, understanding and acceptance, developing resilience, uncovering new meaning and potential for change.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Hove?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Hove specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
