About me and my therapy practice


"Embracing transformation of self within the process of healing, allows us to move through our pain and suffering into a place of hope, acceptance and peace. This powerful journey that is always within our reach, encourages us to seek our own truth, meaning and authenticity. In turn this can bring deep existential, spiritual and holistic awareness of the life we are living and the person that we need to find peace and make ourselves whole." Shelley Lamprell-Josephs (2022)

I am a compassionate Counsellor, with a whole-person approach. I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help in challenging times. I am here to offer you the best support possible.

I am currently working as a Clinical Lead and Training Manager for a Counselling Service in Chichester, and previously as an Adult Team Manager for a Trauma & Abuse Counselling Service in Portsmouth. I was a Counselling Lecturer for the Open University, and at Colleges in SE London, Hampshire and Sussex, as well as a CPD trainer. I started my professional life as a Nurse and then moved into social care, to become a Social Care Manager and Trainer. I have over 30 years experience with people who have had a wide range of physical, emotional, social and mental health issues.

My particularly specialist knowledge /interests are in: Neurodivergent conditions (i.e., Autism, ADHD and Dyspraxia etc) and Trauma. Additionally  I have specialist knowledge of abuse, Loss, Chronic Illness (including ME, Fibromyalgia, Lupus and other Immune System diseases, etc), Palliative / end of life issues, Spirituality, Life meaning / purpose.

I use an individualised, integrative approach to counselling, which means that I assess your own personal needs to find the right form of counselling for you. My specialist approaches include: Person-Centred / Humanistic, Transpersonal, Existential and Gestalt Therapy. I strongly believe that every human being is unique and entitled to access the help and support they need.

Practice description

I have an Enhance DBS Check and I am fully insured for both my therapeutic and clinical supervision work.

I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation session, as I strongly belief that it is important for you to decide if you feel you are able to connect with me to do the work you need to do, either for therapy, or supervision.

If after our initial session, you would like to begin working with me, I will discuss with you your availability, and will do my best to offer you the days / times that are best for you. There is no set minimum or maximum amount of sessions that you have to have. This is a collaborative decision that we can discuss during our work together.

If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact me without obligation.

My first session

Your first session with me (after the free initial assessment session)  will last for 1 hour, but could be extended to up to 1½ hours if needed. 

To begin with, during this session, I will do my best to help you feel safe, secure and comfortable, so that you are able to talk openly and without judgement, about anything you would like to share. There is no pressure whatsoever to talk about anything you are not comfortable with.

We will discuss together the best way forward for your individual needs, how you feel you would like to proceed (i.e., booking future sessions or not.......there is no pressure to do this though. The decision to begin working with me it is completely your own choice, and there will be the opportunity to review our work together as required. 

We will also talk about best ways to make counselling as successful for you as possible, including working together,  commitment to sessions and the work we are doing, cancellations / changes to appointment (notice needed) and payment for sessions. There will also be an opportunity to ask any questions you have about any aspects of my skills and knowledge, or the counselling sessions.

If you have any queries prior to your first session, please feel free to contact me and I am more than happy to discuss these with you.

About me and my therapy practice

I have been Clinical Lead for a team of Counsellors and Volunteer Students at a Trauma & Abuse Charity, as well as a working as a Counselling Lecturer at a Hampshire College and the Open University. I have had over 15 years experience as a Manager / Supervisor / Clinical Supervisor within my health, social care and training roles.

I have worked for the NHS, Local Authorities, Voluntary Sector (Charities) and Private Companies in nursing, social work and leadership roles prior to my counselling and psychotherapy work. I have a Higher Education Supervision qualification, as follows:

Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy Supervision

I work compassionately and empathically with both students and qualified therapists in a pluralistic / integrative and holistic approach to therapy. I am passionate about therapy that looks at the whole person, working in a totally individualistic way, with each client and supervisee.  I have extensive experience in working with humanistic, existential, transpersonal, gestalt and creative / art therapies, which all offer a wide spectrum of theories and tools that benefit clients holistically.

I particularly specialise in areas such as trauma and PTSD, abuse, chronic illness, bereavement, loss, palliative care / end of life issues, life purpose and spirituality, but also depression, anxiety, eating disorders and disability issues.

I currently offer supervision to qualified counsellors and students in Hampshire & Sussex, and individual supervision, face to face in my therapy workspace, from my home in Bedhampton, Havant (Hampshire) and on Zoom.

I have a relaxed, empathetic and supportive  approach to my supervisees, and like to encourage you to be able to speak openly about both personal and professional issues related to your client work. I use my intuitive skills and insight to help separate any transferential issues, in order to see clearly where support is needed. 

This session will also offer the opportunity for you to ask questions and share expectations to create the best possible supervision journey together.
