About me and my therapy practice

After working in Finance and Business, I made the decision several years ago to retrain as a counsellor. I currently have a private practice in Pulborough and also work as Assistant Clinical Director for a community interest counselling group.

Everyone, at some points in their lives, could benefit from support. Perhaps you are struggling with relationship and family issues, loss, anxiety, depression, panic attacks or feeling that you aren't coping with life's difficulties.

Most people find it helpful to talk things through with someone. It is often most beneficial to talk to somebody who is not part of your everyday life and has no connection to your family or friends.

Counselling provides an opportunity for you to explore any problems you may be encountering or past traumas that persist in troubling you. Counselling is not about giving advice but helping someone find their own path through their difficulties. It is about having someone to listen.

Practice description

It is important that, whoever you choose to see, you feel comfortable and at ease with them. I can offer you space and time to reflect. A place away from your everyday routine to talk about your concerns in a quiet, calm, confidential and, above all, non-judgemental environment.

We can work together on an open-ended basis or for a fixed number of sessions, whichever you prefer. Everyone's needs are different, counselling is about building a relationship and finding someone you can talk to. 

My first session

I understand it is a difficult step to make that initial contact and I will endeavour to get back to you promptly. We can then arrange an initial meeting where you will be able to tell me what you would like to gain from counselling and together, we can decide if this is the best approach for you. We can work together on an open-ended basis or for a fixed number of sessions, whichever you prefer. Everyone's needs are different, counselling is about building a relationship and finding someone you can talk to.
