I am

Barbara Hann, Reg. BACP, Dip. Psych. Couns, Cert. Cybertherapist and I live in Chichester West Sussex PO19 and in Carhaix-Plouguer 29 France. My telephone number in England and France is 01243 942666.

About me

I am a qualified Cyber-therapist, able to work with you online, through email, live chat or secure video link, as well as offering telephone and face-to-face counselling. I specialise in time-focused therapy as well as open-ended work, so if you are unsure about committing to long term counselling, time-focused may be for you. I also specialise in working with women on issues that affect them in a specific way, and have helped clients navigate many different problems, listed below.  I find that my experience, combined with a woman's perspective, allows me to to offer understanding and compassion for women of all ages, from teenage to those in later life. Your initial consultation is free of charge, and we can decide together what will best meet your needs.

You may be experiencing difficult feelings following a recent event.

You may have difficult feelings that have built up over time.

You may have a a particular issue you want to explore, or something you want to change, but don’t know how.

You may just feel like you need to talk to someone who won’t judge you.

I offer a creative approach, responding to what you need, and working with you to help you lead a more satisfying life. I believe deeply in our ability to make changes in our lives and ourselves.

Training, qualifications and experience

I worked for some time in Art and Design education, before deciding on changing careers, and following my desire to help people improve their lives on a one-to-one basis.

I was awarded a Diploma in Education Coaching by Newcastle College, and followed that by studying for a Coaching Diploma with the Coaching Academy. I may use some of my coaching skills and experience if it will be helpful to you. I then achieved a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, a three year course run by Chichester Counselling services, and accredited by the BACP. I learnt to work psychodynamically, helping people to understand how their past experiences can affect their lives. Since then, I have qualified to work in a variety of ways, to adapt to the needs of my clients. I can work in a more problem-solving way with you, or use creative processes, such as Art, or explore mindfulness techniques. I qualified as an online therapist, studying a course that allows me to expand my work to reach people who may find face-to-face counselling difficult in some way.

I currently work with young people as a University Counsellor, with adult clients for a local counselling charity, and with private clients.
