About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

***During these unprecedented times I am working solely online with clients via a secure platform.  I am offering a free 15 minute zoom consultation where we can explore whether I am the right therapist for you** *

I have a BA Hons Degree in Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy and offer short and long term therapy to adults and young people both online and face to face. I am a registered member of the BACP and work in accordance with their Codes of Ethics and Professional Practice.

Life isn't always easy to process on your own and talking with an impartial professional outside of your network can be a transformative experience. You may be feeling alone, vulnerable, anxious, depressed, angry or overwhelmed with a combination of these feelings. I can help you to explore this in order to empower you to make the necessary changes to live a more fulfilling life.

I work with clients experiencing a wide range of psychological and emotional issues and believe very strongly in the healing experience this unique therapeutic relationship can offer a client.

What to expect from me..

I will strive to provide you with a relationship where you will feel safe to talk openly and honestly about your inner most thoughts and feelings in a confidential and secure environment. Hopefully the therapeutic relationship that we will build will allow you to understand yourself better.  I focus on understanding and exploring your unique world and how you perceive it. You may want to address a specific issue and/or together we could work to understand your values and beliefs, your relationship with yourself, with others, and with the outside world. I work collaboratively with my clients as I believe you are the expert on you and that therapy is done with you, not to you!

For young people a 50 minutes session may seem daunting, when this is the case I can offer 30 minute emotional support sessions.

I offer a free 15 minute zoom consultation. We can explore whether I am the right therapist for you and can discuss what you would like to achieve and ask any questions.

I have availability to see clients from my home in Woodgate (PO20) or in the centre of Chichester and online.

Please feel free to call, text or email me.

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

As a Humanistic therapist I work with your individual experience of what brings you to therapy.  No two people's experience of a similar issue will effect them in the same way.  I am therefore able to see clients who are facing a very broad range of issues and not limited to the issues listed above.

Therapies offered

  • Gestalt therapy
  • Humanistic therapies
  • Person-centred therapy
  • Transactional analysis

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.
