What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment helps you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, discuss what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment session in Kemp Town, Brighton.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine which issue concerning your childhood and/or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.


Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, emotions and behaviour. It offers you psychological treatments and mental health support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you ease symptoms.
