I have been working in schools as a Counsellor for over seven years with Hove YMCA, at the Priory School in Lewes and currently Shoreham Academy. I have worked with Community CAMHS as a Primary Mental Health Worker. Prior to this I was an Advocate and worked with children in the care system.
As individuals we all think, feel and behave in different ways in different situations. As an integrative practitioner I work with each individual according to there own unique needs integrating knowledge and skills from different therapeutic models to suit the client. I also respect and put the client in the context of the systems they inhabit, be they families, communities, work/ school environments.
My work with clients has embraced a wide range of issues including substance misuse, attachment issues, bereavement, relationship and family issues, mental health including depression, anxiety and self-harm.
Being part of 360B offering low cost counselling in Brighton and Hove is a valuable part of my work ensuring the local community are able to access talking therapies by qualified and professional counsellors.
