Person Centred Counsellor. Offering Counselling in Brighton and in Hove. Weekdays, Evenings and Weekends.
Whatever it is that you are finding difficult to deal with in life, I will help you explore it with warmth and understanding in a confidential, non-judgemental space. I work in quiet, comfortable surroundings, offering counselling in Brighton or counselling in Hove to both individuals and couples.
Some of the more common reasons people come to me for counselling are bereavements, anxiety, depression, work related stress, drink or drug use, relationship problems, obsessive behaviour and gambling or other addictions. Maybe you are experiencing general feelings of worthlessness or low self-esteem. Perhaps you have an underlying sense of ‘impending doom' that never seems to go away. If so, then counselling can help.
As a Person Centred Counsellor, our therapy sessions are not about me or my opinions, they are about you and whatever issues you want to talk about. My aim is to help you understand yourself more. Working together with me in a counselling relationship can help you to recognise negative or destructive cycles in your life, so that we can look for ways to prevent them from happening over and over and again. At the same time we can identify more positive cycles that are helpful for your wellbeing.
I can help you with drink problems, prescription or illicit drug abuse, problem gambling, gaming, internet or other obsessive behaviour. My deep understanding of addiction and all the issues surrounding it comes from my personal experience of addiction, alcoholism and recovery.
I have a good understanding of the 12 step program and have spent time counselling in a Brighton and Hove residential rehab.centre.
My extensive training, wide range of counselling work and life experience helps me to understand and enables me to help you explore your own personal issues and obstacles, whether they are current problems or issues from your past, that still affect the way you are in your day to day life. Together we will work towards strengthening your inner resources in order to build up your confidence and help you to feel more optimistic about the future.
You might be seeking counselling because you suffered childhood abuse, trauma or abandonment. You could be struggling with generalised anxiety disorder, a personal loss, or a bereavement. Perhaps you feel generally troubled, but can't quite work out why, or you are living with a sense of unease which you are unable to shake off.

Counselling sessions will help you to understand some of the reasons behind emotions or behaviours that are bothering you. I will help you to explore anything that is affecting you, in a genuine and compassionate way. Together we will work towards finding a solution. Whatever issues you are finding difficult to deal with, I can help.
You can make a start now by contacting me by text, phone or e-mail - whichever suits you. I offer a low cost first meeting with no obligation, so that you can find out if you’re comfortable talking with me. If you feel ok to do it, why not call me for an informal chat.
