I am here for you if you're going through something that's difficult, confusing or unbearable (on your own or as a couple/relationship). No matter how hopeless it feels, bring it to the safety of our therapy room and together we'll find a way forward for you. Therapy with me is a space to slow down, feel safe, and expand your awareness so you can find a way through. It's also a place to experiment, take risks, and even be rebellious. You might discover parts of yourself that you couldn't see before, like the roots of a tree. As an LGBTQ+ therapist, respect for Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity is at the heart of my work.

People come to therapy for various reasons. Some people come to therapy because they are feeling low, experienced a traumatic episode, whilst others come to therapy for the enriching experience that it is. Psychodynamic therapy is not limited to poor mental health. It is an opportunity to get to know yourself, and why specific scenarios will cause you to behave in the manner that you do. It is time for you, and only you. Once a week, you are invited to flee from distractions, pressures and demands of the external world for an exploratory experience of your inner world.

I have extensive experience working with clients who have encountered issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship breakdown, sexual abuse, LGBT+ issues with family and community. In my background as an NHS staff counsellor I worked with workplace burnout, difficult family/ workplace dynamics, trauma and cross cultural issues. Most difficulties cannot be reduced to a lable, as you are a multi faceted unique human being. I will support you in developing a greater awareness of your own unique and real, values, beliefs, and meaning systems developing a more healthy and harmonious sense of self.

We all experience difficulties at times in our lives, whether it’s facing up to loss, bereavement, life changes and challenges, a relationship breakdown or a shocking diagnosis. Or you realise you’re just not feeling ‘yourself’ and could be experiencing low mood, anxiety or depression. Perhaps life just isn’t shaping up in the way you’d planned. Therapy could be all you need to work through these difficult feelings and get you back on the right track, help you work out what might be causing you to feel this way, and to make sense of past and present challenges to bring into focus a clearer sense of yourself.

Sometimes the experience of life causes our innate creativity to become flattened, stifled or stuck. Patterns repeat; we may use alcohol, drugs, sex or self-harm to numb and avoid painful feelings. My therapeutic approach is tailored to meet individual client’s unique needs. I am registered to work with both adults and children and frequently work with those who experience anxiety, depression, anger, shame, isolation, loneliness, relationship and addiction issues.

A psychodynamic therapist, I bring specific training and experience in trauma, in terminal and chronic illness & bereavement, alongside specialisms in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (GSRD) and LGBTQ + affirmative practice. I have particular experience with supporting people through the process of questioning and discovery their gender identity. My work is deeply informed by my long-term past occupation as a gardener. This work taught me a great deal about presence. It taught me also about the nature of transformation, of the gains and the losses that can come with it, and the deep connection between the two.

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.
