Hello, my name is Caspar. I am a highly experienced qualified and accredited Psychotherapist and experienced Supervisor.
Are you sometimes feeling overwhelmed with life/work/relationship pressures? It's a really difficult time right now, and we are facing more pressures in life than ever before.
Are you feeling anxious about going back to work?
Are you struggling with honest and open communication in your relationships?
Are you battling addiction issues (gambling, alcohol, drugs, sex, food)?
Are you holding on to past hurts, that are painful to express?
I offer individual and Couple Counselling to adults from my therapy room based in Hove and online via Zoom.
I have over 25 years' experience of providing short and long term Counselling and Psychotherapy, plus I have 12 years' experience of providing supervision to both trainee and qualified therapists. I also bring 30 years working experience in community mental health services, across London and Sussex.
My specialisms include:
- Relationship problems.
- Sexual problems.
- Mental health issues.
- Low self esteem.
- Identity & sexuality.
- Work based stress.
My approach includes focusing upon current issues that people may be struggling with and how these may be connected to past hurts, struggles, traumas and life events.
I have a passion for supporting people to make significant positive changes to their lives, and I strongly believe in the transformational potential within all of us.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
