About me

My name is Tony, I am a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Face to Face counselling

I offer face to face counselling from Southbourne and Worthing in West Sussex.

Home visits

Throughout my work in the community with people with physical and psychological issues. I understand the need to offer home visits so people feel safe and comfortable in their own space.  

Walk & talk therapy

I'm a great advocate for Walk and Talk therapy, I take a holistic approach in realigning the physical emotional and psychological state of the client. My experience connecting with nature can greatly enhance the therapeutic process. For W&T therapy I use various locations around Southbourne, Chichester, and Worthing (both coastal and countryside), some of which are accessible for people with mobility issues.


I am trained as a humanistic counsellor, I believe the therapeutic relationship is an equal collaboration between counsellor and client, which I feel is most important in creating the safe non-judgemental space. This supports and enables the client to express themselves in ways that they may not be able to in everyday life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed a certificate in counselling followed by a Postgraduate Diploma, I then furthered my education to complete the BA (Hons) in Humanistic Counselling. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhered to their ethical framework for counselling professionals.

I worked with a well-established bereavement organisation for over three years, in which time I gained a good insight into loss and grief and how it affects people in very different ways. Grief and loss can also mean much more than losing a loved one, Grief can come at us in many different forms. A loss of a relationship, a loss of good health, fitness and varying degrees of sight loss.

There can be a sense of isolation in grief, there can also be a pressure to get over grief. The impact of grief is far reaching.

I am a qualified drug and alcohol counsellor, working with clients in varying degrees of addiction, from abstinence and containment. I believe that anybody in any stage of addiction should have an equal right to counselling, it’s clear that by making initial contact with me they have already begun their journey to abstinence.

I have vast experience working with trauma, secondary trauma and abuse.

I work with whatever the client brings and whatever diagnosis the client may have.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
