About me

At some stage in our lives we may all hit a low point or crisis. Depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences, separation, bereavement, illness, relationship issues, work-related issues and other profound life challenges can leave us feeling sad, distraught, helpless or hopeless. Counselling can offer you confidential and safe space to talk. It supports you in developing ways to cope and improve things.

I am an experienced, qualified and BACP registered counsellor and work with a person-centred, integrative approach to meet your individual needs. I offer a free 30min 'getting-to-know' session where we can discuss what is bothering you and what you would like to get out of counselling. I will meet you with empathy, impartiality and without judgement and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I offer both short-term and long term work; day-time and evening appointments available. I work in private practice from modern, comfortable and easily accessible premises in West Worthing.

Choosing a fitting counsellor to work with can be daunting. Call or email me to arrange for an initial session to find out if you feel comfortable working with me. A 30-minute 'getting-to-know' session is free and without obligation.

I also offer intensive 1-2-1 Systemic Constellations work. Are you faced with a complex situation or question? Are you looking for insights and clarity about it to move forward? Systemic Constellations Coaching is an amazingly effective one-off intervention that can transform your life-path, your career or your business.
