15 Years Experience

I have over 20 years experience working with people who suffer from Anxiety, Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)/Trauma, Anger Management, Divorce and Relationship Issues, Self-harm, Work-related stress, and other mental health issues. I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist living in Brighton who is recognised by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as well as the British Psychological Society (BPS), registered as a Practitioner Psychologist.

Get help with work related stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and relationships. Build confidence, discover a sense of self, be happy.

Learn Mindfulness.

Adults-Kids-Teens-Families.

I also specialise in women’s wellbeing (antenatal support), sexual health (individuals and couples), child and adolescent therapy and testing, family and marriage counselling as well as special needs support. I offer Supervision for psychology and counselling students and other therapists. Medico-legal reports available upon request.

I work with clients who have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety. Other conditions and issues that I have experience working with are eating disorders, Trichotillomania, hoarding, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), bipolar, children of divorce, women going through divorce, relationship advice, anger management, bullying in the workplace as well as within the school system. If you would like to speak to me about something, please feel free to contact me.

My therapeutic approach is eclectic, following the Humanistic approach as well as the Behaviouristic approach to counselling. Humanistic counselling offers the client an opportunity to explore the whole self, instead of specific problems or issues relating to particular periods in their life. Even though we have a predisposed make up of who we are the behavioural approach assumes all behaviours are learnt, and that our experiences and environment make us who we are. With that, each client has different experiences and that is where the person-centred approach to therapy takes place. Because every client is different, treatment will be different. However, there is a consistent foundation of wellbeing that we will develop together to ensure the outcome of happiness or any goals that you set for yourself. I believe that people can achieve success by creating and achieving short-term and long-term goals as well as by practising the art of wellbeing.
