Life can throw us off course sometimes. When that happens it can help to talk through our problems with someone who can really listen, someone who can help us see the wood for the trees. As a fully qualified psychotherapist I can offer you the space and time to work things through.
Our 50 minute sessions will give you the time and space to explore, reflect and develop new ways of looking at issues, worries and concerns whether current or long standing. Counselling can give you the opportunity to make changes to improve the quality of your life both personally and in your relationships with others.
Your sessions will be completely confidential and are yours to bring whatever is on your mind, whether issues are about work, life worries, big or unexpected change, illness, bereavement and loss ; parenting, relationships and childhood or perhaps the idea that things not quite working out for you it would be helpful to consider why.
- Qualifications & ExperienceAccredited qualifications
Level Intro and Level 2 Counselling skills certificate from Varndean College
PG Dip in Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from University of Brighton
MSC in Psychotherapy from University of Brighton
Long term work with clients at the Rock Clinic, and short term work with students at the University of Sussex Counselling Service provide a useful combination so that in private practice I am able to work with clients on a timeframe that works best for them and what they need, whether that be a short burst of weekly sessions, or longer term sessions up to twice per week.
