Currently, I am in my second year of training in Psychodynamic therapy at the University of Brighton. As a therapist, I aim to provide a safe, and non-judgemental space for the client, in order for them to explore how their past experiences (particulary through childhood) may be manifesting into their current lives. I am interested in using the therapeutic relationship itself to explore the clients current relationships, in order for them to have a better understanding of themselves, and themselves in relation to those around them.
Alongside my training and working with Brighton Therapy Centre, I am a mental health recovery worker with West Sussex Mind. In this line of work, I support individuals under a CBT-based model. The contrast between working CBT-based and Psychodynamically has sparked an interest and deeper understanding that each individual is different. This work has enabled me to meet individuals whose mental health issues may stem from homelessness, race, gender, sexuality, relationships, bereavement, and poverty.
Working and studying within the therapeutic setting is my passion, however, I also have an interest in art and textiles. I graduated in 2019 with a BA Hons degree in Textile design. I would be interested in integrating both art and therapy later in my career.
