About me

Once you've decided to have counselling, choosing your counsellor is an extremely important first step, so here is some information about me.

I have been working as a counsellor in Brighton since 2004 and I'm also a BACP accredited counsellor. In addition to being a counsellor, I teach a popular counselling skills course for adults at Varndean College in Brighton.

I am an empathic, non-judgemental and genuine person, and I like to work with clients so that they can find their own way forward with their issues. We work together, exploring and gaining insights into the underlying issues and blind spots. Therefore, the counselling process helps to build your self-awareness, which will make you feel a stronger and more self-confident person.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means I am able to use a number of counselling approaches according to the needs of my clients. I have had extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a leading American Cognitive therapist, Christine Padesky. CBT is an approach to therapy favoured by the NHS and recommended in the N.I.C.E. guidelines.

I also believe in the practice of Mindfulness, and sometimes introduce Mindfulness exercises in the therapy if I feel my client would benefit, such as in cases of anxiety and depression. My free introductory session (for 20 minutes) allows you to see if you would like to work with me. There's no obligation to continue after that first session.
