There's a short wait, usually a day or two, to be seen.

No long wait or complex assessment procedure.

I'm a fully qualified, registered full time professional with experience in couple psychotherapy.

I see couples, including LGBT and of all ages.

I work with people who are conflicting, or who are separating or divorcing but wish to improve future communications or with couples who just want to improve an already functional relationship.

Couple therapy has a coaching element, for example recommending exercises and methods for couples to use at home.

Affordable rates: £60. I am unable to give concessions but am very happy to provide therapy sessions fortnightly.

*What you need to know before committing.

If you are planning to commit to therapy, it is a collaboration on both sides which requires a few rules.

If you commit I expect you to show up or give me at least 48 hours notice. There are two reasons for this, one, someone else might have wanted that slot, and two, no therapist can remain in practice if people constantly cancel sessions because this is a business, it is how I earn my living, so if you do, you need to pay, on the day.

Reasons for not attending cannot include things like school holidays and childcare, work, or sporting fixtures on TV. Therapy is a serious commitment and part of our therapy is to learn how to prioritise. It's hard, but worthwhile, people often want to know how long their therapy will last, I'm afraid that's rarely going to be just a few weeks.

About Me

I have been a counsellor for 29 years. My practice is within travelling distance of Brighton, Moulsecoomb, Lewes, Hove, Portslade by Sea, Southwick, Shoreham by Sea, Rottingdean, Peacehaven, and Worthing.

You are welcome to call me to discuss your needs and issues.

Before calling, it's important to decide whether you really are available to commit to a consistent period of therapy.

My main approach is a blend of counselling styles, eg Gestalt, NLP, CBT, Solution Focused, Transactional Analysis, Transpersonal and Existential. I sometimes use a holistic, body oriented approach. While I am qualified as a counsellor, my therapy is not just a 'talking cure' I have excellent techniques for getting to the root of issues. It's also important to choose a therapist with experience for some issues.

Preparing to embark on therapy

Therapy is a commitment. In the first session, you can decide whether you want to work with me, and I will assess whether I can work with you. For therapy to be really effective, it's important to attend regularly.

I need to prepare a good space to work in, and prepare myself for the session so I expect clients to show up.

Sessions cancelled at less than 48 hours notice will be charged, so please do not make an appointment unless you are sure you can turn up. I am always open to rescheduling.

'I think that the work we did was the opening of the lock that was holding a "floodgate" full of "stuff" behind it! I think we did some very important work together, and I thank you for being the person who helped me on the first step of that particular road.'

- Sarah K

If you are in distress I can join you in your journey for a while and support you in finding more effective ways to address difficult issues and arrive at a greater sense of Self. This means creating a safe and non judgmental relationship in which we can work towards acceptance, resolution or change.

'I spent a year with Rhiannon, she filled many roles in our sessions but to me she has been a teacher. She has encouraged me to know, trust and understand myself in both mind and body. I am now reaching and aiming for goals that I had almost given up on.'

- M.C.P.


Therapy on average takes between six weeks and six months depending on the circumstances. Some people find a year or more is necessary.

Therapy progresses in four ways:

1 Identify, explore
2 Achieve insight
3 Support to accept, cope
4 Support to plan lasting, realistic healing

Rhiannon is a most creative, yet down to earth therapist, extremely safe, equally at home in the realms of the mind and the emotions.

- A Kennedy, former supervisor.
