About me

With practices in Petworth, Horsham and Chichester, I am an experienced Person Centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist, a BUPA Provider, and Accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work with adult and young people, individuals, couples and groups on a short medium or long term basis. Within my practice I also offer Counselling & Clinical Supervision and Experiential Group Work. As well as private referrals I receive referrals from organisations offering Employee Assistance to businesses & corporations. I also work at Chichester University as an Associate Lecturer.

Other experience has included working as Counsellor/Psychotherapist within a PCT GP Practice and an NHS Trust Mental Health Day Centre; as a Group Facilitator for a Families Project in Brighton and for a NHS Mental Health Day Centre in Hove; as a tutor at City College Brighton & Hove.

As a Counsellor/Psychotherapist my aim is to offer you a space and a relationship of trust and safety to enable you to begin to explore feelings, attitudes, beliefs, values, pain, difficulties and to meet and explore confusion, fear, new found awareness and or life changes that may come about.

I hold a belief in the Person Centred approach and that offering the core conditions of Unconditional Positive Regard, Empathy and Congruence enriches and supports a therapeutic journey toward deeper levels of self awareness, self acceptance and clarity, enabling a life led more closely to own values and beliefs. As well as the Person Centred approach, my work is influenced by, and I may use techniques from, CBT, Gestalt and T.A., as well as more creative/expressive approaches including art and movement.
