My Approach

I believe therapy depends on building a relationship in which anything whatsoever can be talked about. It is this relationship that allows painful beliefs, desires and experiences to be explored with curiosity and compassion. My way of working is warm and accepting and is rooted in psychoanalytic theory. Unconscious feelings and desires often conflict with their conscious counterparts. In exploring these we expand self-understanding and acceptance, alleviate friction and achieve greater self-compassion, choice and empowerment. I am trained in EMDR.

About Me

My name is Alicia, I offer both open-ended and time-limited psychodynamic psychotherapy. I work in person in the Brighton area and can work remotely. I am an Associate Practitioner with Brighton Therapy Centre and a Staff Psychotherapist at the University of Sussex.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I am trained in EMDR and can incorporate this approach within ongoing Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. While it is widely known as a trauma therapy, EMDR can be very effectively used in a wide-range of difficulties including OCD, bereavement, disordered eating, addiction, anxiety and depression
We develop as human individuals in relationship, relationships both internally and externally are fundamental in our psychical make up. Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a relational therapy that works with and fosters the development of the fullest possible relational capacity.
Our erotic lives can become restricted by psychosexual difficulties including erectile difficulties, inorgasmia, vaginismus, vulvodynia. Other aspects of our lives can become affected by addictions to sex or pornography. We can feel conflicted and ashamed about our particular desires. I have worked with several individuals who have experienced difficulties in their sexual lives and I have undertaken further training in this area. I believe in the importance of integrating our erotic selves and achieving a rich and rewarding sexual life.
Trauma underpins a wide-range of psychological and emotional difficulties. While it is often thought of in terms of events (singular or repeated) that are objectively distressing or terrifying, trauma can describe any experience that overwhelms the individual's psychical capacity. I have worked with many individuals with trauma and have training in grounding, resourcing, working with dissociation as well as approaching trauma psychodynamically and with EMDR.
