About me and my therapy practice
I'm a qualified and BACP Registered, Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. As well as an Accredited member with the NCPS. I offer psychotherapeutic counselling for individual adults in a safe, professional, confidential and relational space. In-person therapy is via my private practice in Horsham, West Sussex. Online video and telephone sessions are also available.
You might be looking into therapy because a specific issue is causing you difficulty, pain or suffering. Alternatively, perhaps it’s a more general sense of unease, distress or conflict you are facing. A sense that 'something isn't quite right'. Maybe you are drawn to the emergent potential within the psychotherapeutic space or want a deeper understanding; that of yourself, you’re relating with others and the world around you. Whatever you bring, I strive to offer an accepting and supportive environment, where the pace and depth in which we work is fundamentally of your choosing and invitational.
What else to expect -
I will pay close attention to what you might need from our work together, doing my utmost to 'walk alongside you' in understanding, exploration and support. Acknowledging with regard and respect your experiences, thoughts, feelings and memories. Those of your present, here-and-now, as well as those past; how you came to be where you are. Inviting the whole of your experience and in my relating with you through such a process, we might explore the potentialities and possibilities by way of your deepening awareness, fuller experiencing, sense and meaning-making.
I believe the Psychotherapeutic Relationship is a collaborative one. A relationship that promotes, stimulates and facilitates our meeting and connecting. As well as finding ways of working together that further your life in the direction you wish.
Once agreed, our sessions each week will take place in the same location, my private practice - 1 Market Square, Horsham, RH12 1EU.
Parking is easy, with on street, car park and supermarket parking close by. Both Horsham bus station and Horsham train station are within a 5-10 minute walk.
