About Counselling Brighton Hove
I am an experienced couples and individual’s counsellor.
A free first session, with no obligation on you to continue, Individuals & Couples. An experienced, BACP registered, fully qualified counsellor, I provide acceptance, empathy, warmth and understanding to individuals and couples. I offer a place where you will not be judged and your trust kept in the strictest confidence. This will be true no matter what issues you choose to bring.
I like to work informally and collaboratively to help you with your problems and issues so that together we can find a way through them. My strengths are: warmth, patience, kindness and a very good sense of humour - when appropriate.
I have a lot of experience of - and a professional interest in - working with issues around anxiety, anger, bereavement, creativity, depression, self-esteem, loss, betrayal, learning disabilities especially autism and aspergers, couples and relationships, separation, careers, young people, personal development and work related stress.
I believe that any of us can find ourselves in difficult situations where, for many reasons, life can become a struggle, or hard to bear alone. I provide humanistic counselling therapy from a person-centred theoretical basis. Person-centred counselling works from the belief system that we have, at our core, the need or drive to develop, change and improve as best we can. I firmly believe that given the right circumstances a person can fulfil any number of their possibilities in life. Counselling offers a safe environment for you to change and grow but also to come to terms with and find acceptance of parts of yourself or your life that you may not like. I would very much like to be able to help you in this.
I have consulting rooms in both Brighton and Hove, notably Poets Corner in Hove (BN3) and Fiveways, Brighton (BN1) and am happy to try and meet in a venue suitable to you where possible.
My training, work experience and any achievement
have a Postgraduate Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from Brighton University and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Sussex Counselling. I adhere to the BACP ethical codes and standards of practice. I also have an Advanced Post Diploma Certificate in working with couples in a Person-Centred way.
As well as private practice, until recently, I counselled in 2 settings in the local community. One was in the NHS and the other a charitable service. In those roles I worked with adults, children, young people, vulnerable adults with a learning disability and carers. The varied life-experiences and problems such clients have brought to our sessions together has granted me invaluable understanding upon which to base my general practice.
I have experience of working with clients long-term as well as in short-term, more solution-focussed, therapy.
