People think about counselling for all sorts of reasons:
These feelings may be a response to something that has happened and be unfamiliar or frightening, counselling can support us in a crisis and through distressing and difficult times. In a safe environment feelings can be expressed and explored with kindness and compassion. Trauma can be explored sensitively and psychological wounds can be soothed.
We might have been holding down feelings for a long time but they keeping reappearing. Counselling can bring unconscious thoughts into awareness as we discover negative patterns that keep repeating in our lives.
We can begin to understand the meanings we have given to life events and look at the limits we have imposed on ourselves, counsellor and client can work together to find more freedom and acceptance.
With a background in the creative arts, research and education, I work with blocks in creativity and offer support for realising arts and writing projects. I also offer focussed sessions on difficulties completing academic projects.
I approach each client as an individual and between us we seek out the way we want to work together, which might be short-term or open ended but it will always be a collaboration.
My own experience of therapy in times of crisis and loss has been a significant influence on the way I work with clients.
I work in Hove, BN3, and Lewes, BN7, from quiet, comfortable rooms easily accessible by public transport.
I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work under their code of ethics. All my work is supervised by a senior UKCP supervisor.
