West Sussex Counselling’s Beginning 

The History

I began my formal counselling diploma training at Chichester Counselling Services (aka “CCS”, a BACP Accredited training centre). After qualifying I continued working in charity for a further 5 years until, in 2010, I became interested in setting up my private practice.

Along with renting rooms within Charterhouse Counselling Ltd, I took the opportunity to rent room from CCS, who had begun to offer accommodation to private practitioners.

It was working in Chichester in 2010/11 that I met with my first lesbian couple – and hence LGBT Couple Counselling sprung into life.

Although I am no longer working (physically) in Chichester and surrounding areas of West Sussex, LGBT Couples from the local area still work with me using video counselling…

Chichester LGBT Practice Location

Chichester Counselling Services was originally at the top floor of 40 North Street, Chichester, when I joined as a counselling student. By the time I was ready to enter private practice, the charity had moved to 32 Little London, Chichester PO19. It is currently living at 106-108 The Hornet, Chichester PO19 7JR (the first floor above Hargroves Cycles).

Chichester was my first location as an established Private Counselling Practice, in addition to renting rooms within Portsmouth’s Charterhouse Counselling.

Along with my new practice here, I established the website: (remember when the first Apple iPhone was released that same year?!).
