How I work

How do I work?

I offer 50 minute sessions, and they are your time and space for us to work collaboratively so you can find the best way for you to work through whatever difficulties you are struggling with. These sessions may be online via Zoom or face to face at Rochester Gardens in Hove.

Short term work / Long term work.

I offer open-ended counselling, so it is up to you how many sessions you would like to have.  I would suggest having a minimum of six in mind, as it can take some time to build up our relationship and trust and for you to fully receive the benefits of our sessions. You may not know at the outset how many sessions you want and we can continue to discuss this along the way. 

Sometimes people find that once they have started to address one issue, they become aware of other issues lurking beneath the surface and they wish to dig deeper.  For some people, knowing they have my support weekly for a longer period of time is what they need in order to make the significant changes they may need to make. The choice is yours and we can reflect between us whether you wish to continue with further sessions.

I work with Adults, Couples, Familes, Young people aged 16+ and Groups.
