About me

For full info on my services and other useful resources please visit my website: www.whitestonetherapy.com

I offer professional and confidential Psychotherapy, Coaching and Counselling in Haywards Heath, surrounding areas in Mid-Sussex, and the City of London.  I also offer Online therapy services to clients throughout the UK and abroad. In addition, I work as a clinical supervisor for other therapists (see website for details).

My Sussex practice is easy to reach for those living in areas such as Burgess Hill, Lindfield, Balcombe, Cuckfield, East Grinstead, Horsham and Brighton.  Weekday, evening & some weekend appointments are available.

My clinical approach is Integrative (including CBT, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Existential, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis) and incorporates Coaching approaches and techniques.   This allows a focus on deep psychological change, and also the ability to work in practical, solution-focused ways with my clients to develop their strengths.

Working Together

Life is full of challenges and demands. Mostly we are able to respond to them effectively, however there may be times when we feel out of touch with ourselves and unable to access the inner resources we have previously relied on.

Therapy can help those who would like to: make sense of the past; handle emotions differently; overcome feelings of depression or anxiety; improve relationships with others; live life with more passion, confidence and contentment; be free of self-doubt or shame; make professional changes; improve performance; make difficult choices; move beyond abuse or trauma; deal with things that hold them back in life.

I offer a non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your situation and to understand it better. Some people enter therapy with clear goals, others feeling overwhelmed and as a last resort. Some feel stuck in an old groove, and this is also ok, therapy can still help. Our work together may help open up new perspectives and insights; a deeper understanding of how you think, feel and behave. I offer support and also, at times, some challenge to help you move beyond your comfort zone and get you where you'd like to be.

Please do get in touch.

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.
