Counsellor and Clinical Supervision in Chichester, Havant and Westbourne

Hello, my name is Mayvrill Freeston-Roberts and I am an experienced counsellor and counselling supervisor, working with adults, couples and young people in the West Sussex area.

During the current Covid-19 crisis, I am offering virtual Zoom and telephone counselling, so I can support you while keeping us both safe.

We all go through difficult times in life, and if you are ready to make positive change, counselling can be the first step to feeling better. As an experienced therapist, I am here to listen, guide and support you without judgement. We can work together to enable you to improve your life now and for the future.

Please contact me for counselling support in the Chichester, Havant and Westbourne areas, and discover how I can help you to move forward.

Counselling Can Make a Difference

Professional counselling can help to transform how you feel and how you cope with life’s challenges. Counselling is very much about change and encouraging you to discover your own resources, allowing you to gain confidence and build a meaningful life again.

It can be reassuring to know that you can feel much better with a few sessions of counselling. As your therapist, I will support you as you work through your concerns, untangle dilemmas and gain clarity. Therapy will help you to become more self-aware and better equipped to resolve issues, encouraging you to feel more in control of your life.

About Me

When you come to me for counselling, you are in the safe hands of a therapist who has more than 20 years of experience as a counsellor and over 10 years as a counselling supervisor. I love my work and I feel fortunate that I can provide a warm, safe space to help others build a more fulfilling life.

As a mature counsellor, I am equipped with the skills and knowledge to effectively support you – or you and your partner if you come for couples counselling. My extensive training and experience have taught me that you hold some of the answers to your own dilemmas. It is my job to work with you and encourage you to find the solutions that will allow you to flourish.

I have a big family and I understand the ups and downs, and the disasters and richness, of family life. There is much to be learned from this, which I will bring to our sessions together, helping you to find your way through your own experiences.

The counselling approaches I use are humanistic, solution-focused and integrative, and I will tailor my strategies and techniques to your needs. I will come to every session with respect and without judgement, so you can feel able to speak openly.

I have experience in supporting clients who have struggled with:

  • Stress, anxiety and feeling overwhelmed
  • Workplace, redundancy and career dilemmas
  • Bullying
  • Maternity, parenting and adoption issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Gender dysmorphia and gender issues

I am registered with and accredited by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy.

Please contact me for counselling support in the Chichester, Havant and Westbourne areas, and discover how I can help you to move forward.

Counselling Supervision

In addition to my own therapy practice, I also offer counselling supervision for both trainee and qualified counsellors. I believe that good supervision is essential to help us become the best counsellors we can be.

I have been qualified in clinical supervision for over 10 years, having studied Robin Shohet and Peter Hawkins. This supervision model compliments my way of working in that it allows me to nurture your professional development with support and encouragement whilst providing a space to debrief and reflect on client work.

As with choosing a counsellor, I believe it is important that our working relationship is compatible and trusting. If you are in the Westbourne, Chichester or Havant areas and you would like to explore how we could work together in supervision, please contact me.


My therapy room is at The Wow Clinic in Westbourne, West Sussex, which is within easy reach of Chichester, Havant, Bognor Regis and Portsmouth.
