About me

Whatever is worrying you or causing you distress...you don't have to cope alone.

Whether you need to feel supported through an emotionally difficult time, have particular issues you want to explore in some depth, or want someone alongside you as you make changes in your life - talking to a qualified and experienced counsellor, in a safe, non-judgemental space, can really help. There is a lot of truth in the old saying " a problem shared is a problem halved".

My broad training and experience enables me to tailor my approach to suit you and your specific needs - Humanistic at the core, yet incorporating aspects of other models eg: Solutions-Focused, CBT, Coaching, Motivational Interviewing, Creative Arts Therapies.

  • I offer face to face counselling to individuals in a small, comfortable, private therapy room in Littlehampton.
  • Daytime, Evening and weekend appointments available.
  • Potential for telephone counselling once face to face relationship has been established.
