About me

Whether you are seeking therapy due to a period of crisis or to manage a longer term issue it can help you gain an increased sense of well-being and control. This can enable an understanding of the deeper causes of such feelings as distress and anxiety. Through a thoughtful and non-judgemental exploration of life's challenges and difficulties in a supportive space a sense of understanding can lead to healing, growth and change.

I offer both long term and Time Focused Therapy (short term) so that I can fit in with the availability of my clients. Please email or call if you would like further information or to set up an initial appointment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychotherapeutic (Psychodynamic) Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to the BACP's code of ethics and guide to best practice.

I work in a group practise in Chichester, West Sussex and offer a secure and confidential space for my clients. The practice is located in central Chichester and is convenient for parking as well as rail and bus routes.

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.
