By building a relationship based upon trust, empathy and acceptance therapy enables a greater awareness and understanding of how and where difficulties have arisen and provides the conditions for change to occur.
I offer individual counselling on a weekly basis in Brighton.
I work relationally to help clients understand how past experiences and relationships might be impacting current difficulties.
Counselling can help make changes to these often hard-wired patterns and facilitate the development of more healthy fulfilling relationships.
I specialise in Relational Psychotherapy and draw upon the philosophies and techniques from Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, attachment and object relations theories in my work.
Everyone has a unique story - an integrative approach allows a flexibility where therapy can be tailored to a client’s individual needs and experience.

We will meet for an initial assessment to explore your situation. It is important that you feel comfortable - this initial session gives you the opportunity to get a sense of what it might be like to work together. If we then decide to work together we would meet regularly at a time that is convenient for you. Appointments are usually weekly and at a regular time. They take place at my private consulting rooms in central Brighton.
£45-£55 per session
