Do you ever think that your life could be so much happier or more satisfying than it is? Counselling could be the first step towards making it so. Many of us grow up with negative influences around us: indifference, criticism, insecurity, rejection, sometimes even hostility and aggression. As we grow up we find ourselves absorbing these energies, and in adult life they show up as low self-esteem, as anxiety, as outbursts of rage or as depression. They interfere with our work, with our relationships and with our ability to enjoy and make the most of our lives.

I am a warm, caring, understanding and empathic person who is hugely passionate about psychotherapy, about people and about helping others come into a place of freedom. I totally believe in the transforming power of the therapeutic relationship. I have seen it transform my own life and the lives of countless others that I have counselled. I am now in the privileged position of using this passion to help enable and empower others to turn their own lives around as well.

At times life is tough and this can challenge our emotional health and well being, making us feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, depressed, angry or lacking in self esteem. You may be finding it difficult to put words to your current feelings or make any sense of what you are experiencing and this can be both frightening and isolating. I believe counselling can be a transformative and meaningful experience, with change made possible through a supportive therapeutic relationship, which helps us to move towards acceptance of self or empowerment to positive change. As such, I am dedicated to bringing about healing and growth in others.

Coming to counselling can be the first step towards reaching out towards another person when life can feel overwhelming and difficult. As a person-centred counsellor and somatic arts therapist I offer a warm, non-judgmental space in which I listen attentively and accompany you in the exploration of your story, feelings and any difficulties you may be struggling with. I believe you hold within you the potential for your own healing and I endeavour to create an atmosphere of trust in which you can explore freely in your own way and at your own pace.

Maybe you're a bit different... maybe you're neurodiverse, maybe you're non-binary, maybe you've got some 'diagnosis' labels. You're looking for something a bit different, not scented candles and warm words but someone to engage with who's going to 'get it' and work with you. Maybe you're ready to commit to unpicking the tangle of threads that lead to this moment, maybe you're delaying, waiting for some 'perfect' moment.

Sometimes life can feel a huge strain and our normal ways of coping can feel inadequate. Old issues and feelings can surface and feel like they are taking over. When this happens it may be time to root out the problem so the present situation becomes more bearable. EMDR can help do that. In an initial 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, EMDR can help.

Having experienced at first hand the hugely positive impact counselling has had on my own life, I chose to train as a psychodynamic therapist to help others experience the same profound benefits. I now use an integrative approach, which has enriched my work with clients. Working with you, we will together examine and uncover often unconscious or repressed memories which in turn can drive unhelpful patterns of behaviour. We will explore the sources of your problems and aim to deal with the underlying issues, not just try to find a way to cope with them. Only by making peace with the past can you look forward to a happy future.

From time to time everyone experiences stress, sadness, anger, relational conflict and grief which we often suffer alone. Accepting help from others can be difficult but maybe you feel you’ve toughing it out on your own for too long. Whether you are struggling with an identifiable trauma or you’ve reached a point where recurring feelings are becoming unmanageable; a course of psychotherapeutic counselling may help you make sense of what is happening and enable you to gain and maintain some stability. Feelings of fear, anger, rejection and lack of confidence are difficult areas and discussing them with friends too raw and personal.

As I work relationally and with unconscious processes I work well with any presenting issues that are related to attachment. These may be experienced as anxiety, depression, OCD, bereavement issues, substance use etc. You may have difficulties forming meaningful lasting relationships or have recognised a pattern in things going wrong in your life which make you unhappy. You may have current issues with your children that are echoing past hurts of your own that need attending to. I can help you to explore these issues within the safe and holding relationship that we can create together.

Hello and a warm welcome. Sometimes it can be hard to find the right counsellor, especially if you are feeling lost, anxious, low or completely overwhelmed by life. The process of finding someone who you feel comfortable with can be confusing and perhaps a little daunting and yet it is so important to find the right person for you. I hope this goes some way to helping you making that decision. Something may have happened in your life such as a loss, a traumatic event, a relationship breakdown, or you may just feel you have ‘lost’ yourself along the way. Perhaps you feel lonely, confused, trapped or in complete despair?

We will all encounter challenges during our lives. It may be difficult to ask for help but in reaching out we show strength - it takes courage to be vulnerable, open up and acknowledge we need support. I specialise in working with low self esteem, transforming deep-rooted issues, anxiety, depression and feelings of being stuck - whether it be in your relationship, in your job, or life in general. I have been working on an individual basis with clients both short and long term since 2015. Counselling can allow you to gain inner clarity and strength, as well as help you to live a more meaningful life.

I am a chartered psychologist specialising in relationships, depression, anxiety and stress, sexuality and gender, eating disorders, physical health conditions, parenting and many other difficulties. Whilst labels/diagnosis can serve an important function, I believe it is necessary to focus our attention on the unique ways we experience our difficulties and how this impacts on our relationship with ourselves, others and the world.

There are moments in our lives when the difficulties we face can feel too much. We feel like we can’t manage them alone, even with partners, relatives or friends. Counselling can offer the opportunity to unburden ourselves and explore our issues in a supportive, confidential environment. Sharing our feelings, being really heard and accepted can enable a deeper understanding of ourselves and other people. Over time, the process can become a way to unearth our innate potential and discover future possibilities.

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 Lewes?
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 Lewes 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.
