About me

I offer long term therapy and short-term solution focused therapy to adults over the age of 18 and have a specific interest in depression, anxiety, the underlying causes of difficult relationships and self harm. I am a qualified BACP counsellor, and work with adults and young people (University students) as a volunteer in the Chichester and Portsmouth area, counseling both face to face and more recently on the phone due to the Corona virus. My private practice is based in a lovely rural location that's easily reached by car from Alton, Petersfield, Portsmouth and Winchester.

I believe in the research that suggests that the relationship between the client and therapist is the key to the successful outcome, rather than the particular model of therapy being practised. Psychodynamic counselling hopes to make the unconsious consious and looks at how past and present events, challenges, relationships and traumas have affected you and continue to influence your state of mind and behaviour. It is an equal partnership, in which together we will carefully and sensitively explore your feelings, thoughts, memories and dreams. We will work to discover the underlying causes of whatever is troubling you, and hopefully help you to greater self-awareness, so that you can manage the challenges ahead. All our work is confidential.

I do not have wheelchair access. Onsite parking available when face to face counselling resumes.

Member organisations


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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.


An initial telephone consultation discussion, with no obligation to continue, is free. This is an opportunity for you to get a sense of what therapy is like, ask questions and consider if you could work with me.

Sessions thereafter cost £45 an hour (concessions available). We would talk weekly at the same time for a duration of time agreed and decided upon by you. The length of therapy varies.

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.
