FdSc, BACP Registered
I am a qualified professional counsellor and trained in Person Centred Counselling at the University of Brighton.
I currently run my private practice in Brighton and Hove where I work with individuals and couples and I have worked in the past in both charitable and college settings with adults and young people. As well as working as a counsellor, I also worked as a tutor teaching counselling skills courses in a college setting.
My aim is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and accepting space for you to explore in absolute confidence your life, feelings, thoughts and difficulties that you may be experiencing.
I work in a humanistic way, which means that I believe that every person is unique and has the ability to grow towards their own full potential and find their own answers within themselves. My wish is to help you explore and make sense of your situation and be with you on your journey as you work through your issues.
I strongly believe in finding a way of working that most suits you, and in offering you a space that most reflects your needs, so I sometimes draw on other approaches to produce a unique therapy adapted to your own wants and wishes.
I have considerable experience and a professional interest in working with issues around anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationships issues, separation and divorce, personal development, boarding school survivors, pregnancy issues and miscarriage.
I work in an LGBTQ Affirmative way and I welcome people from all lifestyle choices and sexual orientations.
Having a multi-cultural background I welcome working with people for whom English is not their first language and offer counselling in both English and Italian.
I am BACP Registered and I undergo regular clinical supervision and hold full insurance in line with BACP guidelines for best practice.
I am committed to continuing professional development and attend regular training and workshops to inform and broaden my practice.
I offer face-to-face counselling and video Skype Counselling.
