I offer both short-term and long-term counselling on a 1:1 basis, to people over the age of 18. Sessions are weekly and are generally on the same day and time each week. Each session lasts for 50 minutes and I charge £55 per session. If you have accessibility needs of any kind and would require different lengths or frequency of sessions, please contact me and we can have a conversation about your needs.
I offer a concessionary rate of £40 for students and people who are in receipt of benefits.
*Please note that all low-cost places are currently taken*
I believe it is really important that you find the therapist who is right for you. I offer a free 15-20 minute zoom call to help us establish whether we are a good fit for working together. There is no pressure to commit and you don't have to make a decision on the day.
There are a number of ways in which we can work together:
This is my therapy room in Central Brighton, a short walk from the Old Steine. The room is light, spacious and fairly neutral. The therapy practice is based on the ground floor and is mostly wheelchair accessible, please note that the bathroom is too small to accommodate wheelchairs. Let me know if you need any physical accommodations at all and I will do my best to adjust the room accordingly.
Tea, coffee and water are always available.
In addition to working in the therapy room, I also offer Outdoor Therapy in Stanmer Park. I think most of us are aware of the benefits of spending time in nature and with so many lovely places nearby, it seems to an obvious choice to take therapy outside! I have chosen Stanmer Park as it is accessible by car and by bus, and it provides us with woodlands as well as wide-open spaces. Outdoor Counselling can be a walk or spending time together talking on a bench or sitting under a tree. It's a really individual approach and like everything else in therapy, one size does not fit all and there is room for exploration. We will meet in the therapy room or online prior to our first outdoor session, to discuss confidentiality, suitability and any concerns or questions you may have about working outdoors.
An additional way of working together is online, via Zoom. Working online can be very practical and time-efficient. There is no commute to the therapy room and we can speak from the comfort of your own home. This can be particularly useful if you find accessing therapy rooms difficult due to accessibility issues, health problems, or if you prefer to speak to a counsellor who is not from your local area. Some clients appreciate a mix of in-person and online sessions and I'm very happy to accommodate this where possible.
