Training & Experience
Counselling & Psychotherapy in Brighton & London
I hold a post-graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis counselling, awarded by the Psychosynthesis Trust and I am currently undertaking a psychosynthesis psychotherapy MA.
I have experience in working with 12-step members, relationship issues, co-dependency, addictions, traumas, performers, family constellations, depression, self-esteem, anxiety & stress, panic attacks, family & relationship concerns, career or life choices and questions of meaning and spirituality.
I also work with anyone who feels lonely, excluded, alienated, frustrated, stuck, put-upon, inadequate, unrecognised, rejected, misunderstood, or just a bit sad– in other words, all of us, at times.
Over the last 20 years I have worked as an actor and enjoy working with creatives of all kinds. Over the past 12 years I’ve worked closely with the NHS , training healthcare professionals in communication skills, enabling them handle complex and challenging issues.
Having sat in the client’s chair I know what the experience of being a client is and how vulnerable one can feel being witnessed by another. This was one of the most important parts of my training as a counsellor, and I believe has given me more empathy and more compassion for anyone who decides to give counselling a go.
The first line of ‘A road less travelled’ by M Scott Peck is;
“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult – once we truly understand and accept it – then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”
I offer counselling in London & Brighton offering weekly 50 minute sessions.
I have full public liability insurance and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I also attend regular supervision and keep up to date with regular CPD (Continuing professional development)
