I am an Associate Practitioner and have worked at Brighton Therapy Centre since 2019.
I am a qualified and accredited Psychodynamic Psychotherapist registered with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I hold an MSc in Psychotherapy and undertake regular CPD training to remain up to date and to enrich and deepen my practice.
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 work with people experiencing a wide range of difficulties including psychosexual and relationship issues, anxiety, depression, obsessions and compulsions (OCD), trauma and PTSD, delusions, disordered eating, self-harm and psychiatric problems. I have experience of working with trans clients, neurodiverse clients and disabled clients. I am open to exploring all kinds of experiences of prejudice, including racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia and homophobia. These conversations are not easy, but I do all I can to foster a safe relationship in which they are possible.
I see clients weekly at Brighton Therapy Centre and can work remotely if needed. I offer open-ended therapy and time-limited work. I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).
