How I work
Life is complicated. At times, we find ourselves struggling to cope with these challenges. The cost to us of living with unresolved issues can significantly impact upon our lives, on our sense of self, and on the relationships we have with the people around us. What challenges are you facing right now?
I am trained to work with unconscious material. Time and time again I witness how peoples relationships improve, and how their lives simplify, as their understanding and connection with themselves deepens. How do you cope, and how is that working for you?
Talking therapy can be deeply cathartic. However, some people find it helpful to engage with therapy creatively too. I am experienced in working therapeutically with art, role play, sand trays and in nature. Can you clearly express yourself, and do you feel heard?
At times, it may also be useful for us to look at the nature of our relationship. This can offer insights for self enquiry and develop further understanding of how you relate to others in your life. How do you take support in your life?
I specialise in adults and young people; offering individual therapeutic interventions from a small, highly personalised, private practice setting in central Brighton. I specialise in both traditional and contemporary stances and am qualified in Psychodynamic, Client Centred, Eco-therapeutic, Life Coaching and Solution Focused interventions. In order to improve accessibility, I also offer sessions via Skype.
Alongside my private practice, I have worked for various charitable organisations. These include SAHA, an organisation providing better outcomes, including therapy, for young homeless people in the UK. The Rock Clinic, Brighton, improving accessibility by offering therapeutic interventions for those on low incomes. I am also highly experienced in working in with young people. For over a decade, I have been providing practical and emotional alternatives for those experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties in Schools, FE Colleges and in Universities across Sussex.

I am experienced in working alongside CAMHS and in supporting those with Diagnostic labels.
