I conduct individual therapy and counselling sessions in East and West Sussex and am based between Brighton and Worthing.
I work with individual adults on issues such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD), phobias, eating disorders and substance misuse, among others.
I specialise in working with people who have encountered childhood trauma or experienced traumatic events in their life that are impacting on how they function in the here and now.
I have extensive experience in working with people with longer-term mental health problems, such as bi-polar and psychotic disorders.
My therapeutic approach.
The work we do together will be based on an in-depth assessment of your individual needs, taking into account the way you view the world and the environment in which you live.
As a Clinical Psychologist I am trained in a number of therapies including cognitive behavioural therapy, and systemic and psychoanalytic approaches. In addition I have completed further training in psychodynamic practice, attachment and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).
I practise in an integrated way: following assessment we will discuss the most appropriate psychological approach (or combination of approaches), and then work within that framework to help with the problems you have identified.
