I can help you to rebalance your life and improve your relationships - especially the most important one that you have with yourself and your Inner Child!

We all have times when life seems challenging or our past catches up with us. This can be an overwhelming and isolating experience and I believe that to navigate through these periods, we need to find a space for ourselves and a supportive, open and constructive setting. I offer a safe, friendly, professional environment that challenges and supports you as we work together to process your thoughts, feelings and fears. I strive to help you achieve a sense of relief and well-being, as well as presenting you with the opportunity to work towards change and understanding.
My job is to help you look after your emotional and mental wellbeing in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. We will work together to understand and clarify your concerns, explore your difficulties and identify meaningful and lasting changes you would like to make in order to improve your life. My job will not stop there as I will empower you to achieve your goals, find your own solutions to your problems, develop your own strengths and skills that you can use when dealing with life challenges.
Welcome. You may be here because of a period of crisis or for support to manage a longer term issue.

There are many reasons why we reach out for help in times of confusion and pain and you do not have to be alone.
We all experience problems in our lives and sometimes they can feel too big to carry alone.

Whatever concerns you; talking things through with someone and expressing yourself can help you to understand your feelings and thoughts. This promotes healing and helps you to move forward.

I am a Humanistic counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults and young people in the Chichester area offering long and short term therapy. I work face to face in my therapy room, offer walk & talk sessions and online session. You may be struggling with your thoughts, your feelings, your behaviours, and your life situation at the moment. Not knowing how to overcome these difficulties can feel overwhelming. I can help you explore this in order to empower you, to make the necessary changes to live a more fulfilling life.
Living in the world can sometimes bring difficulties. Loss and bereavement, relationship problems, isolation and loneliness, addiction, infidelity, lack of purpose, and questions of sexuality are some of these: anger, shame, sadness, escapism, losing our way or simply putting ones head-in-the-sand are ways that we respond. When this begins to interfere with the quality of how we live, we may seek counselling. We want to live better.

I can help you gain insight & understanding into your past & present in order for you to make clearer decisions about your future. As we work together it will become easier for you to make decisions in order to make your life, work and relationships happier, balanced and more satisfying. This a unique opportunity to be your true self without having to please another person. You will have my unconditional support.
Life can throw many challenges at us, and whilst we may often cope well, we sometimes need a little support from someone unrelated to our lives. This is where effective counselling, tailored to the individual, has its place. I am experienced via the NHS, charities and private practice in helping clients explore many issues including anxiety, depression, trauma & PTSD, addictions, lifestage and relationship issues. I am also trained to work with sex offending issues, sexual addictions including online pornography and other paraphilias. I offer a totally non-judgmental, confidential space to safely explore your current difficulties.
Do you sometimes struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, sadness, depression, stress or a lack of confidence? Do you keep repeating the same old patterns of behaviour? Just want it to stop? Together we can look at where these patterns began by exploring your past experiences and relationships in a safe, non-judgemental environment. Whether you have a problem that needs some time to look at or something specific that you need help with right now .... using either long-term or short-term therapy, we can work together to help you find a solution and get back to the enjoyment of living. Appointments may be available at short notice.
I work with young people and adults. I have extensive experience of working with trauma and sexual and domestic abuse. The basis of my model is person-centred. I integrate other counselling approaches but always maintain a client-led process based on client need. I work relationally with clients to support them in their personal journey towards growth, understanding and hope. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.
No matter what brings you to the process of looking for a therapist, welcome! Counselling shouldn’t be a copy and paste experience; you feeling seen and heard in the therapeutic relationship we share is my top priority. You take the lead in what we do together, and I will adapt my practice to meet your needs. I celebrate difference and have held space for clients from all backgrounds and expressions. I recognise the impact of oppression and marginalisation and aim to provide an environment where you can feel safe to discuss any issue. No issue is too big or too small, and I will accompany you through that exploration.
I've been where you are now, looking for a therapist and not sure who to choose! Deciding to have therapy and choosing who to embark on the journey with can be a daunting prospect. But, you’ve taking the first step to sharing your difficulties and that’s a great start. Having had my own therapy I know how important it is to find the right therapist. I offer a safe, welcoming space for you to share what is happening for you. I won’t judge or tell you to do things. I will support you with the choices you make. I offer appointments from 8am to 8pm and may be available at short notice.
Sometimes it can feel as though you are in a never-ending loop, repeating unhelpful and negative patterns of behaviour which damage your feelings of self-worth and value. I can support you by enabling you to understand your behaviour patterns through exploring your emotions, anxieties and any past or present trauma. We will work through any old and unhelpful perspectives and feelings about yourself and your life, enabling you to make positive changes - putting the pieces of your puzzle back together, leading you to loving your life and accepting every aspect of it. This might be one of the most important journeys you will ever make.
Sometimes life isn’t straightforward, throwing challenging issues at us. We can feel overwhelmed and unable to cope alone. A safe space to talk in privacy and confidence with a “neutral” person who is prepared to really listen and help find different ways of looking at the problem can be invaluable.
It's Time For You! Are you always there for everyone else, and now need someone to be there for you? Then you have come to the right place! We all need help sometimes, and taking the first step of asking for help is often the hardest. I know, because I’ve been there too. You need time for yourself. How can you be there for others if you are feeling burnt-out? Have you suffered a loss or bereavement? Are you feeling low and anxious? Whatever difficulties you are facing, my job is not to diagnose you, give you advice, or tell you how to fix things. My job is to be by your side as we explore ways to help you find your own answers.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential environment for you to talk through your concerns you find difficult to deal with on your own or to discuss with friends and family. I will listen to you with empathy and in a non-judgemental way. I will support you as you become aware of how events and concerns impact your emotions, thoughts, choices and behaviour. Together we can explore to make sense of your experiences and to discover new ways to deal with similar or new experiences. You can develop and gain more self-understanding; and acquire a sense of security, significance and self-worth to help you in the future.
I love working with couples & individuals who want to make changes in their lives. Perhaps for you it's a struggle with anxiety or depression. Maybe you are unhappy with a relationship, feel trapped, betrayed or dissatisfied with how things are. I offer couples weekly or intensive half and full day sessions to really kick start your progress towards a happier future. Possibly you hate your job and want to do something different but you're not sure what or how to make that big step forward into a different world. Perhaps you've lost your confidence and your self esteem has hit rock bottom and you need a positive way forward?
