About me

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.
  • Bereavement.
  • Mental health issues.
  • Low self esteem.
  • Identity & sexuality.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • 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.

Alongside my counselling and psychotherapy training I have over 30 years' experience of working in mental health services. I have worked with hundreds of individuals and couples from many diverse backgrounds with an equally diverse range of presenting issues.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

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.

BACP

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.
