Counselling in Brighton & Hove

Maybe you're feeling stressed and low and don't feel good about yourself. Does it seem like other people have got their lives sorted out but you haven't? I have the expertise, as a therapist, to work with you to try and bring some understanding for yourself as to what is going on.

Have you lost someone close and your life feels empty? Do you feel you have lost your way in life? Sometimes in life we need a bit of support. Counselling can be just what we need to get back some balance in our lives. Being able to talk things through, in confidence, with a supportive, non-judgemental therapist can bring relief from our worries. It may also help us to embrace life in more creative ways.

Difficulties and stress in the present may have stemmed from early life experiences. Understanding this can help towards changing how we view life and relationships; especially in connection to recurring patterns of behaviour. Counselling explores past and present feelings and the links between past and current relationships.

I am an experienced in counsellor and work with people who have a range of problems and concerns and I abide by the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Therapy is helpful for a wide range of issues including: low self esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work related issues and bereavement.


I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Psychodynamic Counsellor, offering counselling in Central Brighton and Hove. I am a friendly and open minded therapist.

I bring a rich and diverse background to my work as a therapist. I have a background in the visual arts, as well as art and design education. I have participated in psychotherapeutic personal development groups, and many mindfulness based practice groups and retreats. I have also led creative visual art self-exploration groups. In addition to this I have experience of a mindfulness based approach to therapy.

My core training is Psychodynamic but I also like to include other approaches when it is appropriate. I have undertaken further training in Mindfulness, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy. Both open ended and short term therapy are available.

I abide by the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) is a membership organisation and a registered charity that sets standards for therapeutic practice and provides information for therapists, clients of therapy, and the general public.

My counselling practice, in both Brighton and Hove, is in comfortable rooms, which are easily accessible by public transport, and have parking nearby.

Counselling sessions are available in Central Brighton and Hove. I also work online.
