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.

I am a qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist and work holistically which means that I consider mind and body; as our bodies can often give us important information that we hadn’t previously been aware of.
It takes courage to start therapy. Often, we are at our most vulnerable at these times. I believe the most important thing to establish first is trust. I am not here to tell you what’s ‘wrong with you’ or what you ‘have done wrong’ in the past. My aim is to meet you where you are and invite you on a journey for us to explore together, in collaboration, what is upsetting you and holding you back.

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 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.

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 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.

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am highly trained and experienced in using Gestalt Therapy to help people who experience problematic thoughts, feelings.
When dialogue becomes painful and difficult we can explore other creative styles that may suit you. You may feel lost, desperate, alone and have tried other avenues but still find your right back at the same place. At a Safe Space we can explore why you are not able to move forward and be the authentic person you can be. We can explore the blocks and barriers and old patterns that have surprised you in life. I have a strong ethos with supporting clients to explore and set their own inner boundary, therefore allowing and empowering you to find your own inner therapist.

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.

You can live an addiction-free life. You can live without having to hide a part of you from people all the time. You can have meaningful friendships. You can make the change that you need in order to be more confident and happy. You can learn to love yourself instead of living in shame all the time. You are not your childhood, nor your actions. You are worthy of love! I feel passionate about facilitating people to reach their potential and find their inner truth.

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.

Hello, I work close to nature, in a private and quiet garden cabin and my dog Bertie is with me if you would like him to be. I want to support you to be OK with yourself. Some of the following questions we might over the time we work together: What are your needs and are you able to express them? What you would like to change in your life and how would life be different after counselling? How do you see yourself and the world and how do you feel you are seen? I like to work creatively, using therapeutic tools to help you connect to different parts of yourself such as sandtray, two chair work, and IFS; exploring what works for you.

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.

The idea of starting therapy may be overwhelming. You may be feeling anxious, depressed or lost, and not knowing how you got to where you are now. I aim to listen to you share your problems, stories and experiences. I am interested in what you have to say and understand how difficult it may be for you to share your feelings with others, especially if they involve traumatic experiences. I work relationally, meaning that I am invested in supporting you to achieve your goals.

‘Nobody has the power to take two steps together. You can take only take one step at a time’ -Ohso. It takes courage to face the discomfort and uncertainty we are left with from our past. I believe we all hold the ability to heal form life’s experiences. By working with both the mind and body together, we increase awareness of what we are holding onto from our past that may leave us feeling distressed, isolated or stuck. Therapy can help identify and release emotional blocks or unhelpful patterns, so you can move forward in a new direction towards positive change. Sessions can be ongoing, short term, or a single session as required.
