About me

Hello, I'm Rosie. I offer a confidential, space for you to come and explore thoughts, feelings and issues you may be currently struggling with.

I believe compassion for self and others is central to finding contentment and much of my work focuses on this. Without self compassion, our loud critical voices can prevent us from living in the moment and allowing others close to us.

People come to counselling for many different reasons, such as trying to make sense of a difficult period in their life or possibly an increasing need to understand a problem that has always been there.

I am a Humanistic counsellor and believe each of us has the ability to grow, heal and to ultimately find fulfillment within ourselves. My job is to be alongside you on your journey, reflecting back what I see and at times gently challenging unhelpful beliefs and coping strategies you may have adopted to get through a difficult past. Whilst these coping strategies may have been necessary once they may now be holding you back.

First Session and Working Remotely

Looking for the right counsellor can be overwhelming, especially when you are feeling vulnerable and lost. With this in mind, I am happy to offer a 30 minute introductory session at no charge. This is a chance for us to meet and for you to decide if I'm the right person for you. We can also use this time to look at what it is you would like to get out of counselling.

Due to the current situation with Covid- 19 I am offering all my sessions remotely, either via video call or phone calls. When it feels safe to do so i will be giving my clients the option to return to face to face work or to remain working remotely.

Location and room

My room is located in central Hove with plenty of parking including the option to park at Tescos for free if you spend over £5 in the store. There and also good public transport links nearby.  It is dedicated to counselling and is welcoming and private (please see photo).

I can offer both short term counselling, usually between 6 - 12 sessions, or more open-ended counselling depending on your needs and circumstances. I am experienced at working with both Adults and Adolescents.

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.
