I am an experienced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I provide a warm, reliable and creative service to all my clients, and never cease to be humbled and inspired by those I work with and their individual life stories. I am interested in your life, your thoughts, feelings and behaviours – and what is and is not working for you. I believe therapy enriches our lives. Through our explorations, we can increase your self-awareness to affect meaningful change. Sessions are in person in central Brighton, or online.
My approach is Integrative, non-judgmental and collaborative: we agree to find a way of working together that suits your individual personality and needs. Predominantly, I draw on the theories of Carl Rogers (Person-Centred Therapy), Carl Jung (Analytic Psychology) and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing) in order to build trust in our relationship and then sensitively draw attention to unconscious processes and bodily sensations to promote awareness towards personal wellness. I may suggest incorporating active practices in session, for those it suits, such as mindfulness or use of a sand-tray. If psychosexual concerns are the focus of our work, we may discuss techniques and exercises that promote increased sexual health.
My practice is sex-positive and kink positive, informed by up-to-date clinical knowledge in this area. GSRD (gender, sexual and relationship diversity) affirmative.
I offer a safe, confidential space to individual clients aged 18+.
