-discuss your difficulties together
-work through and learn to understand both of your patterns of behaviour
-blame each other less
-encourage you both the have an equal voice during the session

In working together in this way can offer you both more insight and clarity about yourself and your relationship with each other.

I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor (BA Honors Degree). I also hold a Diploma in INLP (Art and Science of Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Couples Counselling. I continue to attend workshops as part of my professional development. A registered member of the BACP, I adhere to its guidelines. My registration number is 373152. I run my private counselling practice in Chichester and also work as a volunteer counsellor for the NHS and the University of Chichester. I am passionate about working with couples and families, and I am aware of the different challenges they may face. Such challenges can feel intimidating and bewildering, and in some instances, can trigger difficulties and stress within the relationship. I strongly believe in the value of counselling for couples; by providing a safe and reassuring environment for two people to explore and express their feelings helps to empower them to communicate more effectively. Allowing couples to understand one another with greater clarity and empathy, counselling is an established and effective means of overcoming life’s obstacles and curveballs. Counselling also promotes a better relationship with self and helps to bring about a clearer perspective, giving couples the best chance of reaffirming a firm foundation for their relationship and allows them to move forward with a renewed focus.

I offer a trusting therapeutic relationship where both partners are equally supported so you can find a deeper understanding of yourself and each other. Working with a successfully researched based model, I support couples to see patterns of behaviour, address their responses in conflict and identify ideas they’ve formed about each other. Working with this emotionally focused and attachment based model, couples are able to explore deeper underlying emotions in a calm confidential environment. Within therapy, you can expect to improve communication, find a closer and healthier connection with one another and re-introduce a loving and caring relationship. I offer practical methods so couples can develop the resources to become self-supporting.
Beckley, Hastings, Battle, Robertsbridge and Wadhurst
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with individuals and couples in the Southeast of the UK. I particularly enjoy working with couples as I often witness how much, even in the midst of conflict, two people can bring out the best in each other.
Couples often come to counselling after a long struggle, continually falling into familiar patterns of conflict. Deciding to come to couples therapy is often the point where there is greater potential for change. As human beings, we often need a life crisis before real change is possible.
My work is based on creating a safe environment in which to explore difficulty. Becoming aware of one’s needs and desires and gaining the confidence to voice them, as well as having the communication tools to facilitate deep listening, enables individuals to feel heard, which then facilitates the building of trust and intimacy.
Another aspect of couple’s therapy is identifying the patterns of behaviour that can lock you into difficult dynamics. When these are explored and understood, increased awareness fosters compassion and kindness.
I have a diverse training which includes a Diploma in Couple’s Counselling, as well as Transpersonal, Psychodynamic, Gestalt and Jungian training. I also teach self-esteem and mindfulness courses. I am accredited by the UKCP, one of the two main bodies regulating the counselling and psychotherapy profession, and abide by their code of ethics and practice.

I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor.

Nearly all couples will experience difficulties in their relationships, some can last for years and others are more easily overcome.
I understand that making the decision to come into couples counselling can be daunting; it can seem almost like a formal acknowledgement that things in your relationship are not exactly as you would like them. Despite the emotional challenges involved in reaching out for support, the acknowledgement of your relationship problems can be the first step in solving them. I have helped many couples, each with unique conditions, from different backgrounds and having different issues; no relationship issue is too strange or shocking to me.
Worthing, Shoreham-by-Sea, Littlehampton, Arundel, Ashington, Washington
I am a UK BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist with over 10 years’ experience working with both couples and individuals.
We are all unique and different in the way we relate, and I can tailor therapy to your individual needs. Often a couple will seek therapy when there is a breakdown in the relationship . This might be after an affair, losing connection to the other and drifting apart or a build-up of painful experiences that has led to difficult and non-communication. I can help you listen, talk and even argue in a healthy way.
We all bring our pasts in to a relationship and by gaining and understanding into our basic ways of behaving we can do things differently, breaking lifetime habits that we have learned from childhood.
I offer a warm, non-judgemental approach and a safe, confidential space either face to face, telephone or online counselling for both couples and individuals.

I am a fully qualified registered counsellor having completed a BACP Accredited Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling.

All relationships are complex and experience difficulties along the way. It may be that you are stuck with a long-standing issue, dealing with a recent affair or struggling to maintain a connection with your partner. Whatever brings you to couples counselling, I see our relationship being fundamental in establishing a therapeutic, empathic, non-judgemental space, which is central to us working collaboratively and effectively.
I approach my work with warmth and compassion in order to empower couples to resolve problems and to set and work towards relationship goals.
All relationships are unique, and thus our sessions will be led by you in how you would like to progress our journey together. I will support you to find effective ways to communicate with each other to enable healing and/or a deeper connection with each other.
“Human beings in their essence are born in connection, they are hurt when they feel disconnected, and healed again in re-connection.” Hedy Schleifer, 2019
Relationships can be challenging at times and there are times when we have to face these challenges. These difficulties can be due to our past experiences, lack of trust, lack of connection or communication with one another. We have hopes and needs for our relationships. Not having those needs met can cause us hurt or loneliness. Having experienced therapy as both a client and therapist, I feel has given me great empathy, understanding and warmth towards couples who work with me. I work in a safe and non judgemental way.
I have experience working with the NHS as a CBT therapist (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). This experienced has proved very effective when working with couples and issues such as depression and anxiety. Part of the work we would be doing is looking at how certain patterns of thoughts and behaviours have come about and looking at how you would like your relationship to be like in the future. The focus here is on the couple as opposed to the individuals and what the dynamics are within the relationship. The client is essentially the couple. We would work together to challenge some of the habits and negative cycles that may be contributing to the difficulties you are both facing in your relationship.
Relationship from the word Relation (n.)
Relation means to be connected. The connection between two people can be strained, ignored or even ended depending on the circumstances.
