Psychotherapy and Counselling in Chichester
Counselling Therapy and Psychotherapy in Chichester, West Sussex and within easy reach of Arundel, Petersfield, Midhurst, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton; and Portsmouth, Hampshire.

Hello and thank you for visiting my website.

You may have looked at other counsellor's or psychotherapist's websites already, and found them to be virtually the same.....with a list of 'issues' worked with, qualifications held, and fees due.

It can be confusing and difficult to decide who to contact to get the help you want. Qualifications and fees alone are no indicator of a therapist's effectiveness!

Research has shown that the best indicator of success is the relationship that we co-create between us – even if we only work for a short period of time. I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy - which means that I integrate the most effective methods from the very broad range of therapy styles I have also studied. I have also trained in Kinesiology and I am particularly interested in nutritional influences upon the moods, perceptions and psychological/emotional health.

I have a keen interest in neuroscience, quantum science and energy psychology/medicine - all of which inform my practice (as well as being a valuable part of both 'The Ripple Effect' Process and Quantum Psyche Process that I have created and written books about....please see 'Links' page.

There are 4 levels of psychological difficulty which I list here to help you to more clearly understand your present circumstances and needs:-

Level 1
Temporary difficulties linked to external events/situations, and a change/decision is sought. Time is needed to explore own preferred outcome. (e.g. workplace problems; grief; life transitions)..

Treatment - short-term Counselling.

Level 2
Interpersonal (me-with-others) and Intrapsychic (me-with-me) relationships; mood disorders and self-esteem problems that may be masked by dysfunctional behaviours; Traumatic event(s); Childhood issues that interfere with your present-day life; attachment and intimacy problems; difficulties with limits and boundaries; pathological grief.

Treatment options – Psychotherapy (weekly); 'The Ripple Effect' Process (Psycho-Emotional-Education) and Quantum Psyche Process.

Level 3
Chronic and/or acute disturbance of personality and reality; severe childhood trauma(s), abuse or neglect; Personality Disorders including Multiple Personality Disorder (called D.I.D.); untreated P.T.S.D.; addictions to drugs/medications/alcohol; lack of Ego-strength or integrity.

Treatment - Long-term psychotherapy - preferably more than once a week.

Level 4
Brain-damage or organic retardation; profound mental illness; sociopathic and/or psychopathic behaviour; severely disordered personality; sexual and/or violent criminality.

Treatment - Psychiatric services
