Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support.


 As a Humanistic Psychotherapist I will work alongside you as a professional guide to you as the expert of your own experiencing. I can incorporate relaxation, mindfulness, CBT, gestalt models into the work, which are tailored to the needs of each unique client, so I may make suggestions or invite you to try different approaches that could be beneficial, it is always your process that is central to the work, and we work together in collaboration. It is not my job to give advice, answers, or solutions but to actively listen and support you in making healthy choices.


I offer face to face, 1.1 sessions in comfortable, confidential offices in Brighton and Hove locations. I also offer telephone and online zoom sessions. I work from a soundproofed office in my home (all online/telephone sessions are from here), or  Hove Practice Rooms. The sessions are 50 mins long, and take place (as a minimum weekly), to support therapeutic process.

Office and appointment hours.

Mondays:  6-6.50pm, 7pm-7.50pm,

Wednesdays: 6-6.50pm, 7-7.50pm

Thursdays: 11-11.50pm, 1-1.50pm, 3-3.50pm, 5-5.50pm, 7-7.50pm

What To Expect When Making Contact?


On making contact via email or telephone, please feel free to leave me a message stating your name, contact details, and indicate a good times to ring that are free from interruptions.


I will contact you back within 48 hours to arrange a free 15-minute initial telephone assessment.


If you are happy to proceed we can then set an appointment time for a working assessment session. As this is a session where we get to know one another before continuing therapy. Counselling sessions are £45 for face to face, and Zoom or telephone counselling. The contacts I have given are used by myself only, and to preserve your confidentiality I will never speak to you in a place we could be overheard.
