About Me

.I work as a counsellor in Brighton and Hove, offering face-to-face and online sessions. I qualified at Middlesex University and hold a BA Hons in Integrative Relational Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I am also a trained facilitator of the Systemic Constellation method which I use in my work to explore the transgenerational effect on present issues. I am a registered member of BACP which means I am bound by their professional and ethical framework. I began my counselling career working in a women’s centre, followed by a time in NHS primary care. I gained experience working for Care for the Carers before moving to private practice where I work with a diverse range of clients who have issues which are both varied and complex. Lately I have concentrated on developing my experience of working with trauma focussing on PTSD, educational trauma and transgenerational trauma. I have a particular interest and experience in working with young adults especially those who are neurodiverse

Therapeutic Approach

My approach is: ​​Integrative - combines a number of specialisms specific to your individual needs Relational - looking at negative dynamics within your relationships, past and present, and how these can affect mood. The counsellor-client relationship is a core part of relational therapy and how it can be used to build positive relationships with others outside of the counselling room. Psychodynamic - helping you understand unconscious behaviour, influenced by past experiences, which is having an effect in the present Systemic - enabling you to recognise behavioural patterns through intergenerational exploration. ​I also use creative interventions including Inner Child, Visualisation, Phenomenological and intergenerational exploration when appropriate.

Background

Before becoming a counsellor, I had a career in overseas travel and then I worked for many years as a learning support specialist. I balance my work life with a keen interest in all things to do with craft and also long cycle rides.
