Counselling Brighton, Hove and Horsham

I am an accredited psychotherapist offering psychotherapy and counselling in Brighton, Hove and Horsham. My site is designed to introduce you to my work, explore whatever issues you are going through and help you arrange  either counselling or psychotherapy.

I make it a goal to ensure that every client that contacts me finds their way to a counsellor that meets their needs. This may be me, or it may be one of the many other counsellors that I am connected with across the South of England.

About Me

I have been working as a psychotherapist for 10 years now. I was originally working as a management trainer before completing my training and moving into the world of mental health. My education focused on philosophy This has led me to take up existential psychotherapy – a method that I hope you will find as exciting and as challenging as I do.

I trained initially at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, where I received my MA. Since then I have gone on to begin a second MA in Child Psychotherapy with Terapia. As a counsellor I have worked with Sussex University, Surrey University and am currently in the middle of a project with Brighton University. My background in training has led me to deliver courses to trainee counsellors and those with an interest in promoting mental wellbeing in others.

While I work with a wide range of client groups, I work well with issues around bereavement, disability. I also, due to another career I used to have in game design, am an appropriate counsellor for anybody that spends considerable time online, social networking or gaming. In order to make myself as accessible as possible to clients I also offer online counselling.

If you’re considering counselling or psychotherapy then contact me to discuss an initial meeting. You can mail me at info@counselling-brighton.co.uk or call/text me on 07714 324542.
