I work either as a counsellor/supervisor as a Somatic Experiencing practitioner, using a body-centred approach (Focusing-oriented) with psychodynamic, person-centred, humanistic, transpersonal and Family Constellation techniques.
I am a London-born and now Brighton-based BACP counselling course lecturer (East Sussex College), with over twenty years’ experience in therapy work. Being an integrative counsellor means I draw on multiple disciplines to help resolve issues like: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, PTSD, abuse, relationship issues, grief, blocks to sexuality and work-related issues. I will try to help you process and clear any negative and stuck experiences so that you can feel better, with the freedom to make new life-enhancing choices.

Taking a warm, sincere and non-judgemental stance, I use the Person-centred approach to help my clients connect with how they are feeling, and the Psychodynamic approach to understand their history in order to identify the root cause of their concerns.
I have personally experienced what a difference counselling can make by encouraging my clients to explore their emotions, their uncomfortable thoughts and their feelings in a safe and calm environment. People often feel they are suffering alone and I know exactly how that feels too. I am able to provide support for issues which are particularly difficult to talk about such as shame, guilt, stigma, rejection, taboo or discrimination. My aim is to facilitate my clients progress towards feeling empowered, enabling them to make their own decisions and to regain hopefulness.

At times life can be distressing or leave us feeling less able to cope. Perhaps you feel at odds with yourself; unsure of how to move forward or aware that you don't want to continue feeling as you do now.

I lean towards the psychodynamic as it seems to offer very useful ways of understanding & therefore (re)-structuring relationships which may have become damaged/confusing over time.
The decision to try therapy can seem very daunting, but you have already taken the first step if you are here in this directory. Dealing with difficult issues, loss, bereavement, trauma, divorce/separation, identity , etc can feel utterly overwhelming. Initially, the prospect of sharing such experience may feel like a step too far. My own and clients’ experiences have shown me time & again that it is through the process of talking therapy that in sharing the burden the healing can begin. I have a passionate belief in the power of the wounded, with support, to find some reconciliation, with themselves, their history & in relationship

As we begin to make sense of troubling, confusing or conflicting feelings and experiences, it can become possible to discover greater ease, choice and fulfillment in the present. My fees for individuals are £70-90 per session, and £120-150 for couples.

As a psychodynamic counsellor, I think a better appreciation of your early life experiences, can lead to a new perspective on your feelings now.
Taking the first step to talk to someone can feel difficult. Perhaps you're clear about how you feel or maybe you're confused and it's difficult to put your feelings into words. You may have felt this way for a while and you're not sure why. Maybe you're in a difficult relationship or you feel that your relationships don't last. Many of us struggle to make a life transition or cope with a change or loss in our lives. Perhaps you feel your life is lacking meaning. I can help you make sense of these experiences by understanding their meaning for you and help you gain a greater understanding of yourself in the process.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Brighton, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
