**I am now able to offer face-to-face, online and telephone sessions**
I’m a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor working in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.
You may have a very clear idea of why you are looking for a counsellor. Alternatively you may feel that something just isn’t quite right for you, but are unable to work out exactly what it is.
Talking to a counsellor can open up a completely different way of understanding yourself and how you live your life. You may want to make a change, or just learn how to cope with a situation in your life. Counselling can give you the time to make sense of it all.
I have trained as an Integrative Counsellor, which means I have an understanding of many different counselling approach, so I am able to adapt the way I work to best suit your needs.
The most important part of counselling is the therapeutic relationship. It's important you feel comfortable in the way we will work together. I offer the opportunity to talk openly in a trusted, confidential and safe environment. A chance to be yourself.
Everyone can be their own harshest critics – sometimes we just need another voice to question how we have come to see ourselves the way we do. The answers can be surprising and can move you forward to where you want to be.
Taking time for yourself to explore issues and concerns, with no judgment, empathy and honesty, can provide you with the insight to manage things differently. Over time this can enable you to make the changes you need in order to live the life you want.
I hope I've been able to give you some idea of what to expect from counselling and what I can offer, however, there are more details on my website, the link is above.

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.
