My name is Aaron.

I am a practising Buddhist and Adult & Child Counsellor & Arts Psychotherapist & Somatic Experiencer (SEP)in Hove & Brighton.
I have been seeing children, young people, adults and couples in Brighton, Hove for the past 15 years. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in Brighton & Hove in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.

I offer Counselling , Psychotherapy & Somatic Experiencing ( SEP) , and Comprenhensive Resource Model ( CRM).
I provide a safe and confidential space, be able to talk and work through your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential setting.
I provide face-to-face, individual Counselling , Psychotherapy and Healing, to anyone experiencing a range of emotional issues, with the aim of enabling you to live your life fully and happily.

Sometimes Counselling and Psychotherapy is all someone will need to get to a better, more balanced place.
But sometimes it is not enough.

I am finding more and more people are finding ‘Talk Therapy’ not enough. So many of our behaviours and responses are rooted in our bodies responses. Often ‘talking’ is not enough to get to the root cause of our issues. Hence why I offer ​​Somatic Experiencing® and Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM). Both of these modalities, are powerful body based therapy's, that are capable of relieving physical, emotional and psychological shock, stress and trauma. They help mobilise the body's innate self-healing systems - the same physiological processes that mend broken bones and fight disease.

If necessary, I will also combine Counselling, Arts Psychotherapy and Somatic Experiencing and Comprehensive Resource Model, into a holistic approach that will suit your needs.

I know choosing a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Somatic Experiencer ( SEP), is not easy. You need to find someone you can trust.
The first session is an opportunity for you to see if I'm right for you.

‘I wanted to say thanks again so much for all your help over these last few months. I have really enjoyed the sessions we've had, even when (as often) they've been challenging, emotional or painful! You created an environment that enabled me to feel relaxed and safely vulnerable, and i found you to be be kind, understanding and completely non-judgemental. In short you were exactly the kind of therapist I'd hoped I would meet but wasn't sure existed, having never had therapy before! ‘
