About me and my therapy practiceI am a fully qualified, friendly, professional and highly experienced counseller based in Adur and Worthing. I am a person-centred counsellor, which means my main focus is on building a strong, trusting relationship with you so that we can explore whatever is on your mind on your terms and in your own time. I am here to listen to you, and to provide a space for you to feel heard and genuinely supported, and together we can work to find a way forward for you. If you are struggling with an issue in your life, a difficulty, mental health concern, relationship difficulties, or a life change, then counselling can help you to better understand what is going on and to have somewhere to fully express yourself. My interest is in providing you with a supportive and confidential space in which to do so. Counselling with me can help you with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, feeling down, making a decision, relationships, loneliness, anger or anything else that may be worrying you. I am also trained and qualified in solution-focussed therapy, where we work for a shorter period of time in a very focussed way to help you to find solutions. I am an experienced and trained mindfulness practitioner which can also help you to find a quiet time in your day for reflection and relaxation.
Practice descriptionWhen you come to me for counselling, you can expect a quiet, safe and supportive place to talk openly and freely. You will be respected, listened to and genuinely heard, and we will focus on building a deep and trusting therapeutic relationship. I am friendly, approachable and have a long track record of success in working with a range of clients. I currently work from a relaxed and calm space in Broadwater, and online, with some availability in Lancing and Shoreham. In addition to my formal counselling qualifications, I have extensive additional training, including in subjects such as:- anger- addiction and substance use- trauma- stress- sex- sexuality- LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy- anxiety- panic attacks- depression- adverse childhood experiences- homelessness- debt- autism spectrum- learning disability - health anxiety This is not a full list; do talk to me if you would like to know more.
My first sessionI offer a free 20-minute assessment so you can get to know more about me and I can get a better understanding of what you are hoping for from counselling. Having someone that you can connect with, trust, and someone you feel safe with, are all very important in counselling. Our first meeting will be a chance for you to explore whether I am the counsellor you need and want and for me to explore how I can best help you.
