About me

I am an integrative therapist who believes that we all have the ability to feel better if we are prepared to explore our inner world. This can be a difficult task and for this to be possible we need an environment which is calm and comfortable where we can be helped to make sense of our lives through warm encouragement, acceptance and insight into what might have happened which has caused us to feel unhappy, worried, confused or stuck.

As an integrative therapist I use a range of theories including, humanistic, psychodynamic, CBT, gestalt, Jungian and TA. The benefit of having such a diverse range of theories means that I am able to blend these ideas in a way which helps me and my client understand how, when and why their lives have not progressed in the way they would like and also offer a wider view of what is possible and useful in order to move forward.

My aim as a therapist is to help my client achieve their own goals by working through and accepting the events of their life; sometimes we do not even know why we feel the way we do. Gaining a greater understanding of ourselves gives us an opportunity to make new choices.

Due to the nature of counselling being an evolving process I offer open-ended counselling. This does not mean a client will necessarily be working longer term; what it does mean is that it is the client’s choice as to how many sessions they would like.

Training, qualifications & experience

Most of my work has been with adults but I also have experience with teenagers and the elderly. Some of the issues I have experience in cover: alcohol and drug addiction, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-harm, sexual identity and orientation, bullying, sexual and physical abuse, neglect, confidence, death anxiety, loss, anger, career, autonomy and independence, low self-esteem, relationship issues.

In addition to my private practice, I am the Clinical Supervisor at The Information Shop in Chichester, which is a charity offering free advice, counselling and other services for young people between 13-25 years old.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Therapy.

Previously I have worked for an agency which offers counselling for young people and as an honorary counsellor within a drink and drug agency.  I also counselled patients in an NHS hospital caring for patients with long term health problems, terminal illness, recovery and rehabilitation.
