About me

A qualified and committed Humanistic & Integrative therapist, possessing the necessary qualities needed to work effectively with adults, adolescents and children.

I work within a private practice in Arundel and from my home in Chichester providing counselling to those impacted by the effects of metal health, additional needs and trauma.

I value individual difference, honesty, integrity and the want to find your own path. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers through the unique counselling relationship. I have sound knowledge of a range of theoretical approaches to counselling and their application, and am able to deeply empathise whilst retaining an objective and realistic approach to a persons individual needs.

There can be times in life that leave us feeling alone, anxious and desperate for a break from our own mind. These are the times that you are likely to find yourself in search of help and a sense of direction as to how to heal or make difficult decisions. The pain of depression and anxiety can be unbearable and cruel, however I whole heartedly believe that a chance to explore and re-process a situation can lead us to find resolution and a choice of change.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
