Clinical Psychology and Psychological Therapy

Psychology Services working across Sussex, Brighton and Hove

A warm welcome to my Brighton and Hove Clinical Psychology Practice. I offer a range of psychological approaches in my work, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Therapy (EMDR) and Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, as well as coaching. I work with adults, young people over the age of 14, and couples.

I work with people experiencing a range of issues, including:

    Feelings of depression or low mood
    Finding it difficult to manage feelings of anger
    Struggling with grief or trauma
    Experiencing anxiety, stress or feeling overwhelmed
    Finding it difficult to manage at school, college or work
    Feelings of panic, or experiencing phobias
    Feeling stuck as a couple or as a family
    Struggling with alcohol, drugs or food
    Adjusting to life changes, or
    Struggling to get the best out of your work or your life in general

I have worked for over 20 years in the NHS and have now developed a private practice working across Sussex, Brighton and Hove. I enjoy balancing working part time in the NHS and part time in private practice as a Clinical Psychologist. I offer a comfortable and informal space and aim to work where you can talk in confidence and work together to make the changes that you would like to make in your life.

I offer a range of psychological therapy treatments, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

Psychological therapy treatments include working with people experiencing anxiety and depression, addictions, eating disorders, relationship difficulties as well as anxiety disorders, including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and panic disorder. I specialise in the treatment of trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma.

I am a warm an approachable individual and have over 20 years experience working as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS and private sector across Brighton and Hove as well as Sussex. I use a range of approaches including CBT, EMDR and Clinical Hypnosis.
I offer practical support, strategies and a clear treatment plan to guide our work together. I also draw on training and experience as a Clinical Psychologist in a range of evidence based methods - in my experience therapy is most effective when different approaches are adapted to meet the needs of each person. I will work with you to develop an individualised programme using the treatments that will be helpful to you. This could include working with CBT, EMDR and other approaches. The work I do is also short to medium term and time limited, with a review at four to six sessions. I am also registered as a Clinical Psychologist with most health insurance companies.

Choosing a therapist can be daunting. I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation where you can find out more about how I work - please click here to arrange a time. I can also share what availability I have, the therapeutic approaches I use, including CBT and EMDR, and give you the opportunity to ask any questions if you have any.
