What to Expect

An introductory assessment session allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange a preliminary assessment appointment in Hove or Worthing.

  • Bipolar
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • OCD
  • Panic
  • PTSD
  • Self Harm

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and challenges unhelpful ideas which perpetuate the problems you experience. The aim of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

Counselling

NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide what issue regarding your childhood and/or adulthood you discuss. An aim of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and discover a way forward which is right for you.

Psychodynamic Therapy

NICE suggests psychodynamic therapy for
  • Depression
  • Self Harm
Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious meaning of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in being conscious of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to enhance your self-understanding to give you options.
