About me

Working with a range of psychological issues such as anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, eating disorders, post traumatic stress and phobias I am an experienced Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Practitioner/Supervisor and EMDR therapist based in Worthing. My therapy rooms are within easy walking distance of West Worthing station and there is parking available on site.

I offer a free, no obligation initial meeting to discuss what you are looking for in terms of counselling or therapy to ensure that you are getting the right support for the areas you want to work on. Please call me on 07776 258515 to arrange this appointment or you can contact me online through the directory.

CAT is a weekly time limited therapy which lasts between 16 and 24 weeks and EMDR is also a weekly therapy that is helpful for trauma and phobias, particularly post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Member organisations


The Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy

The Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) is a registered charity. They welcome members of the public, health professionals, ACAT accredited professionals, and anyone interested in finding out more about CAT. They list CAT practitioners.


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.
