I specialise in psychodynamic counselling but have experience working with more skills based approaches like CBT.
I believe the first steps towards counselling can be a very daunting prospect. If you are feeling anxious and reluctant about taking that step. I am here to help make the process an easy one. I have worked with many issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, stress, anger, bullying, to name a few. Together we can help to break negative cycles of behaviour or thought patterns. Helping to regain control of your life. Whilst creating a greater understanding as to why this might be occurring. If you find it difficult to talk, then together, we can help to find the words that may be unspeakable.

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.

Thanks for stopping at my profile. I'm an experienced and dedicated psychodynamic therapist and I work primarily with adults in my private practice in Hove. I am very passionate about psychodynamic therapy as I've had the first-hand experience of how it can help people overcome and resolve a variety of issues, from mild to severe. Psychodynamic therapy is an in-depth psychological intervention which is explorative in nature and focused on free expression. Often open-ended, it offers rewards for those who undertake it that can be life-changing, including a robust sense of self, easier relationships and an ability to live free of fear

Sometimes painful memories, strong feelings and intrusive thoughts become too overwhelming to manage. When this happens, it's not unusual to feel anxious, low in mood or just aware of feeling "stuck". You might be thinking "what's happening to me", and with no apparent answer, this can make things can feel unpleasant, destabilised or even frightening. Or you might feel that something more specific, like a bereavement, relationship breakdown or traumatic experience have made life seem more of a struggle and less of a pleasure. This is often the point when we seek help from someone.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

It could be you have recently hit a tough time in your life and need a space to make sense of it. It might be that a relationship has become difficult; with your partner, at work with colleagues, with your children or close family members. You may be suffering symptoms of anxiety and depression and you are finding it harder to function in daily life. It may be that you are transitioning from one stage to another in your life; leaving home, starting a family or approaching retirement and you need somewhere to work through some of the feelings of anxiety, fear and uncertainty that such a change can bring.

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.

I work closely with women who have struggled with self esteem & identity, relationship issues, difficulties in motherhood, life transitions, attachment and early trauma, and transgenerational trauma. I am particularly interested in the structural power differences that impact people, so I work closely on issues to do with patriarchy, race, culture and more.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Hove, 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.
