You may be a woman who is struggling with depression, relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, or simply a sense of emptiness. You may feel trapped in, or emerging from, an abusive relationship. You may have experienced a loss recently- death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, even ageing poses its own special challenges. I specialise in working with women in particular, by telephone, video link, and online. I am able to be flexible in the way I work, and combine different methods to suit my clients. Working by telephone or online can be very helpful to clients who are unable to travel.

It may be you have reached a time where you need the help of another to reflect and move forward. Seeking counselling at these times is common, instinctively knowing we need to work with a non-judgemental other to re-consider. It may be you are struggling with anxiety or depression, health issues or issues arising from life changes. Specific challenges such as redundancy or relationship breakdown can trigger emotional responses which are extremely hard to cope with. Or you may have a more undefined sense of dissatisfaction, and wish to explore ideas which will strengthen you. I will support you to develop tools to support yourself.

It’s hard to be human. Sometimes we all need a bit of help. A place to take stock. Work out where we are or process uncomfortable feelings - maybe old traumas that are still causing us problems in a our day to day lives. Improve our relationships and discover what might be holding us back. Recover from grief or change. Challenge ourselves- unblock our creativity - find our flow! Build our sense of ourselves - come out of darkness and find hope. Therapy is a space for you and a relationship that offers support and challenge and skills to make these changes.

Hello, I am a queer-identified therapist and I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for a number of years. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is troubling you. Most of us experience mental health challenges at some point in our lives, and there is still so much pressure to appear like we have it all together. Often just feeling heard is the first step towards healing. There is strength in admitting that we can’t do it all on our own and that we need a bit of help to get through life’s difficulties.

I am an experienced psychodynamic therapist where I work with adults in my private practice in Hove. Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth process which is often open ended, guided by free association rather than a set agenda. This form of therapy can help you to gain an understanding of your own thoughts, feelings and beliefs in relation to your past experiences. Counselling is therefore an opportunity for self-exploration through your relationship with your therapist. I provide a compassionate and nurturing environment for you to be curious, at your own pace, about yourself and your life.
