Counselling and Psychotherapy



How I work


I began practicing in 1999 and qualified as a therapist in 2001. The model of therapy I use is known as integrative and brings together a range of therapies in a coherent appropriate manner.


This model recognises that there is not a “one size fits all” approach and that there is greater benefit in drawing on other theoretical models when responding to the needs of the client.

I draw on person-centred, transactional analysis, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution focused approaches.


I am committed to continuing professional development and attend regular training and workshops to inform and broaden my practice.


I am BACP Registered and I undergo regular clinical supervision and hold full insurance in line with BACP guidelines for best practice.




People go to counselling and therapy for many different reasons, often people seek therapy for the first time because someone close to them, or their GP has suggested they get help. Others seek counselling because they have identified certain goals or issues they would like to work on.


A common misconception is that people who go to therapy are “crazy”, on the contrary, having a mental health issue is no different from having a physical ailment and there is no shame in looking after our own mental health.


Most clients are people simply struggling with common everyday issues. The help of the right therapist can promote self-actualization, empower self-growth, improve relationships, and reduce emotional suffering.


A therapist or counsellor is there to work with clients collaboratively on whatever is most distressing or important to them. Often in therapy, a client and the therapist will explore much more than just the client's initial presenting problem--that is, the main problem that brought the client to therapy. Together, the client and the therapist will decide the goals of therapy, and if the therapy should be short- or long-term.





I offer a full (50 minute) introductory session of £20 (to cover room hire costs) for us to meet to discuss the issues or concerns you have, your aims of counselling and to decide whether or not we would be able to work well together. You are under no obligation to continue if you decide it is not for you.


If we do decide to work together, my fees are on a sliding scale of £45 - £65 for a 50-minute session depending on your view of your means to pay.

I can also offer a limited number of concessions to students or unwaged at £35 per session.



I offer £65 - £85 per 50 minute session, again depending on your view of your means to pay.


I work from a central Brighton location easily accessible through public transport. On-street parking is available.
