About me

I am a trained BACP certified counsellor and Holistic Therapist. I started my exploration of Humanistic Psychology 15 years ago when I found myself looking for a deeper meaning in life. I worked as an executive leader and manager in the corporate world, most of my career until I retrained to become a counsellor and executive coach (APECS). I have 25 years of experience of working with people. I studied at Middlesex University, graduating in 2011 as a Psychosynthesis counsellor. I've also studied synthesis of meditation and western psychology, and graduated as a holistic Therapist 2006.

Counselling & coaching can give you a better understanding
of yourself and it can be helpful to solve some difficulties you are
experiencing. It will give you a choice to make some changes in your life.

Over time I’ve helped men and women, with the complexity of life
challenges. Finding identity and direction in life when you lose track:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Divorce or Separation
  • Relationship difficulties - I work with couples
  • Bereavement
  • Low Self esteem
  • Addictive behaviours

I work face to face and online both on the South coast and in London.  I am also offering a bespoke couple program in London.

I am looking forward meeting you,

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

​Where do we begin? 
The initial session is an opportunity for us to meet and to discuss what has brought you to counselling/therapy or coaching, it is also to identify what you are hoping to gain from the therapeutic work.

Where will we meet?                                                                                                          
I am based in Fishbourne near Emsworth and Chichester, on the south coast of England, 10 minutes walk from Bosham train station.

How long is the process?
We will give consideration to how many sessions feels right for you. Therapeutic work can be short term (generally 4-10 sessions) or longer term and more open ended.

How does it work?
In the initial session, we can identify a structure to the work that fits with your hopes and expectations. This can be adapted and changed if needed.

​How long is a session?
​The session will last for 60 minutes.

Counselling/therapy and coaching to me, is a humanistic approach with the view that we all have the capacity to heal ourselves. I listen without judgment and we will look at alternative ways of problem solving. My role is to create a trustful working space to facilitate exploration, understanding and healing. It can also be helpful to understand the links between the body and our mind. I draw on the work from Dr R Assagioli, C.Jung, Winnicott, Faisal Muqaddam and A.H Almaas

Wheelchair user access
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.
