About me

Sometimes life’s challenges can feel overwhelming and hard to manage and it’s difficult to know what to do and where to turn to. Here is where counselling can help but it can feel like taking a huge and sometimes scary step in booking that first appointment.

Let me see if I can help you make that step into counselling. What I can offer you is my long standing experience as a counsellor in a setting that is calm, confidential, non -judgemental and warm feeling so that you can talk about the difficulties that you are facing in your life.

Thinking in terms of myself and how I work I would describe myself  as a qualified and very experienced counsellor based and working in the Crawley area.

My experience covers working and helping my clients with a wide range of issues including anxiety, loss, low mood and depression, stress, personal development, life stages and relationship issues.

In addition I have worked with clients interested in building their self- confidence and resilience and looking at different life stages such as becoming a parent and the changing needs of being a mother or father to ever growing children, ‘ empty nest’ feelings and menopause.

I have been qualified and practising as a counsellor since 2003and I hold a BACP Accredited Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling.I am also a registered member of BACP and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy

My way of working as a counsellor is termed Integrative which means that I can draw upon different types of therapeutic approaches to meet the individual needs of my clients.

Over the years I have worked in different locations in West Sussex as a counsellor including dedicated counselling services, NHS counselling services and Schools. I have decided mostly to work in Crawley and Horsham as I feel by working and living locally that I am in touch with the issues and difficulties that are around for local people

My practice is situated in a quiet area of Crawley with free on street parking available .I can offer my clients a range of appointment times covering day and evening appointments and I can offer sessions on a long or short term basis as required.

My usual fee is £40 per 50 minute session but I do have a limited number of concessionary spaces available for clients who otherwise might find it  difficult to access counselling

I am happy for you to contact me by email or telephone with questions you may have before arranging an initial 50 minute session to discuss together whether counselling is something you would like to undertake with me.

Please do take a look at my website for more information about what I am able to offer you

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.

Accessibility

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.
