About me

Hello, I'm Bud. I am a qualified Humanistic counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer a very supportive counselling service, where I place you at the heart of our work.

I work both remotely using Zoom, as well as face-to-face sessions at a location central to Chichester Town centre. 

I provide a safe, trusting and confidential space. The personal qualities I bring are empathy, acceptance, warmth and compassion. I will accompany you on your journey as we explore together the things that are important to you.

Sometimes we don't always feel we can talk to our friends or family, so we hold on to things and suffer in silence.  People find that being heard and feeling accepted can make a huge difference. Life can be extremely challenging and I understand how facing things alone can be so hard. However, reaching out for help is the first (and really brave!) step to living a more fulfilling life.

Please bring whatever you are struggling with to the safety of our therapy sessions and together we will find a way forward.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
