Sometimes life takes us places we did not expect to go and reaching out for help may feel very difficult. Reading this is the first step, so thank you for taking the time and energy to read this.
Counselling can offer an opportunity to explore any difficulties in a safe non-judgemental environment, offer support as you talk through your own thoughts, feelings and behaviours in an attempt to gain a better understanding of your experiences.
As a Humanistic counsellor I understand that everyone has their own unique and individual way of seeing and experiencing the world. Through counselling I aim to offer you the opportunity to experience a working relationship where you are fully accepted as an individual and helped to find solutions which best suit you.
I have a ground floor counselling room close to Littlehampton town centre which is warm and comfortable and has good access for disabled users. (See photos) I am able to offer both open ended long term or short term work and flexible appointments times.
I have experience working with a wide range of life issues including: depression, anxiety, stress, loss, separation, or issues around life changes such as marriage, employment, retirement, caring roles, addiction, eating disorders, sexuality, relationships and self-harm.
I also offer walk and talk therapy, giving you the opportunity to talk through your issues while walking.
As a member of the BACP on the accredited register, I am committed to its Ethical Framework of Good Practice.

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.

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).
