About me

Perhaps something has happened in your life that you’re having difficulty coming to terms with – such as illness, bereavement, or some other event or loss.

Maybe you’re feeling low or struggling with anxiety or self-confidence.

Or you might want to make some changes – large or small – and feeling unsure where or how to start.

Counselling and coaching, or a combination of the two, provides a safe space for you to explore such issues – and also the associated thoughts and feelings that you may be finding it hard to talk about with other people - or, perhaps, admit to yourself.

It’s your agenda that matters – not mine – and I work with a wide variety of issues, short-term and longer term.

We can meet at The Rooms at Evelyn Road in Worthing or online (via phone, video, live chat or email) - or we might use a blend of these.

My coaching and counselling approach is rooted in:

·         Person-Centred

·         Transactional Analysis

·         and Gestalt.

I also draw on elements of:

·         Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

·         Solution Focused Brief Therapy

·         Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

·         Mindfulness

Training, qualifications & experience

My professional qualifications include:

·         Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling

Member organisations

BACP

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.
