Independent Psychological Therapies and Clinical Supervision in Brighton and Surrounds

Welcome to Brighton Psychology Service

Independent Psychological Therapies and Clinical Supervision in the Brighton area and Internationally (online)

I am a Brighton based experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years experience in the NHS at the Maudsley Hospital, South London and also locally with Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.  We can work together using Schema Therapy (ST) and/or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) depending on what best suits you and what you need.  I am accredited as a therapist and supervisor in both of these therapies.

I am also a Schema Therapy UK trainer, meaning I support other clinicans to train to become Schema Therapists (  I have been involved in applied research during my PhD and clinical training.  I have continued this thoughout my research and clinical career, publishing in academic journals and contributing to books.

I believe wholeheartedly in the value of good quality clinical supervision as a means to provide the best care possible for clients.  I am an experienced clinical supervisor and am able to provide supervision to individuals and groups. 

As a psychologist I believe that everyone is special and that their unique life journey has shaped both their sense of themselves and influenced their relationships with others.  My aim is for us to work together to create a shared understanding of your earlier life experiences and how they might have influenced your current struggles.  We will develop goals together and I will work creatively and with empathy to support you whilst you make important changes.  

I also work with numerous Private Health Insurers (including BUPA), please get in touch to discuss options.

Please get in touch if you would like to explore any of the options further.
