I am a BACP Registered Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, specialising in anxiety, offering face-to-face sessions to adults in Brighton and Hove, and online video sessions.
I draw on various approaches when I work, which includes Person Centred Approach, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Solution focussed therapy. I offer CBT techniques and creative work when I feel they may be of help to you. I also work holistically, meaning that we will consider your physical and spiritual needs, as well as looking at your psychological and emotional needs and wants.
I work in a warm, understanding way and we will work at your own pace to make sense of any challenges you are facing in your life, and being curious about how your past may by influencing your current life.
My background is in the NHS, and I have also worked as a counsellor with As You Are in Southwick (offering support for stress and anxiety), Martlets in Hove (bereavement counselling) and BIMM Brighton (British and Irish Modern Music Institute, providing counselling for students), and as a group facilitator with Survivors Network.I have experience in counselling a wide range of issues including stress, anxiety, OCD, phobias, panic attacks, low self-esteem, depression, relationship issues, bereavement and loss.
I trained at Wealden College of Counselling and Psychotherapy and qualified as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor in 2019.
In addition to this, I have recently attended training in the following areas:
