As an integrative psychotherapist I work with adults who have concerns about their mental health and more general every day worries and concerns, where a place to sit and talk for a while, with someone who won't judge and isn't connected to their everyday lives, is needed. I have worked with a range of needs from simply having a desire to discover more about yourself and how you are in the world, to feelings of low self esteem, anxiety, depression, dealing with loss and change, relationship worries, unfulfilled potential and stuckness (this list is not exhaustive)

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.

Are you struggling to cope or experiencing low mood? Do you feel uneasy or ‘not like your usual self’ and you don’t know why? Are you wondering where your anxiety comes from? Do the same patterns seem to repeat throughout your life? Your well-being is central to everything we will work on. Counselling is your time & your space to reflect upon your current worries, fears, problems & reflect upon your experience of life. We will identify and focus on what’s currently draining you, then incorporate techniques to ‘free up’, balance & improve your energy. This is your counselling so you will decide how you wish to use your sessions.

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?

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.

Walk-Talk Therapy: Do you want to re-connect with nature? To feel more grounded, mindful & to just slow down? We will walk in the beautiful woods and fields near my counselling room in the South Downs. Walking & being in nature releases endorphins which in turn reduces depression and anxiety. Life is often so busy that nature becomes removed - this will give you time to reconnect. For some people face to face traditional counselling is too anxiety provoking, so walking in parallel can feel more comfortable.

Do you struggle with relationships, connecting with people, and find social situations difficult? Is it hard to feel good about yourself and put yourself first? Maybe you feel stressed, exhausted and fearful, juggling life's responsibilities. It can be overwhelming holding it all in.

Working through issues with a supportive counsellor, who won't judge you, can help clarify what blocks your progress. Change is possible and can lead to a healthier, more balanced life and more fulfilling relationships.

People come to counselling when their life is not going as they want it to be. With sensitive listening, empathy and gentle observation I can help you to become aware of what is troubling you and why. You may be having difficulties in one or more of a wide range of difficulties including anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, divorce and separation, family issues, guilt, loneliness, injury, loss and grief, low self esteem, relationship issues or stress. I can help you by really listening in a non-judgemental way and supporting you as you listen to yourself, which will lead to greater self-acceptance, understanding and resilience.

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.

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 or couple, has its place. I am experienced via the NHS, charities and private practice in helping individual and couple clients explore a wide range of personal and relationship issues. I specialise in working with trauma, sex offending issues, sex and pornography addictions and other paraphilias. I offer a totally non-judgmental, confidential space to safely explore your current difficulties.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Chichester are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Chichester then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Chichester, or Child Psychologists in Chichester.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Chichester psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Chichester specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
