Working in private practice in Eastbourne, East Sussex, I have been helping people work through the challenges of life, work and relationship for over 20 years. I trained and qualified through the University of Brighton where I am now a Senior Lecturer and run the MSc psychotherapy course.
I recognise that life is not easy. We don’t have to have suffered a traumatic experience in order to need a helping hand and a supportive ear. Life at today’s frenetic pace can be terribly isolating, so it can be helpful to have someone to talk to; someone who is trained to listen, wholeheartedly and non-judgementally; someone with whom you can explore how you feel and put words on those feelings. My aim is to provide a safe space in which you can take a step back from your situation and find some clarity.
My core training is in humanistic psychotherapy: the main influence being ideas from Gestalt. I am also heavily influenced by ideas from Buddhist psychology and other experiential traditions (such as Focusing-orientated psychotherapy). My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is one that prizes the power of the relationship developed between the therapist and client.
