About me

Everyone, at some points in their lives, could benefit from support. Perhaps you are struggling with relationship and family issues, loss, anxiety, depression, or feeling that you aren't coping with life's difficulties.

Most people find it helpful to talk things through with someone. It is often most beneficial to talk to somebody who is not part of your everyday life and has no connection to your family or friends.

Counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore any problems you may be encountering or past traumas that persist in troubling you. Counselling is not about giving advice but helping someone find their own path through their difficulties.

It is important that, whoever you choose to see, you feel comfortable and at ease with them. I can offer you a space to talk and think about your concerns in a quiet, calm, confidential and, above all, non-judgemental environment. My private practice is in Pulborough but I also work in Horsham.

I understand it is a difficult step to make that initial contact and I will endeavor to get back to you promptly. We can then arrange an inital meeting where you will be able to tell me what you would like to gain from counselling and together, we can decide if this is the best approach for you. There is no requirement to sign up for a series of sessions, as it is about building a relationship and finding a counsellor you can talk to. Everyone's needs are different. I am able to work with you on an open-ended basis or for a fixed number of sessions, whichever is most appropriate.

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.

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.
