I am a professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I see clients face to face and also offer phone and online video sessions. I have been seeing clients through a number of organisations for several years. I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues, personalities and ages and see clients from 16 years and up. I provide couples counselling; working with both of you to help resolve relationship difficulties.
I am also a qualified clinical counselling supervisor, offering one-to-one or group supervision to both qualified counsellors and trainees.
Everyone experiences difficult times at some point in their lives and sometimes we need a space to talk and work through those difficulties. Counselling is an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and supportive environment with someone who is trained to help. Everyone is different and every experience is different; I like to help people understand what has got them to this point and then help them to look at ways they can make changes to benefit their lives.
People come to therapy for many different reasons. You may be experiencing current difficulties or wanting to work things through from the past. You may be feeling low or anxious and not even know why. You may even just want a space to feel supported and heard. Therapy is not simply about responding to crisis but also about self and life exploration. Sometimes it can feel easier to talk things through with someone external to family and friends.
As an Integrative practitioner I understand every person’s uniqueness and draw upon the three main theories of psychotherapy: psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural whilst incorporating ideas of Existential Philosophy.
If you are experiencing difficulties in your relationship or wondering how to move forward. If you've 'lost' something you once had or are struggling to get past something, then perhaps having some sessions together would help. Couples counselling is an effective way to explore what is going on for each of you, and between the both of you. It's really important when seeking couple's therapy to ensure you are seeing a counsellor who is trained and qualified in working with couples.
My counselling practice is located in Horsham town centre.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
