Hello and welcome. I am Malcolm Bateup and I offer a unique blend of therapy and wellbeing services, from counselling to psychotherapy, based on your needs to help you be the best you can be.

A fuller but not exclusive list includes:

  • Bullying and harassment

  • Stress

  • Self confidence & esteem issues

  • Trauma

  • Rejection

  • Anger management

  • Body image dysmorphia

  • Gender identity

  • Sexual abuse

Everyone is unique, I use an integrative approach which takes the best bits from all therapeutic methods


Malcolm Bateup

As a caring and open empathic person, I offer counselling that puts you at ease and makes you feel safe to enable you to be able to open-up about sharing difficult life issues.Malcolm Bateup self help book 'Live your life like you have lived it before'

I believe this approach comes from my own personal life and lived experience of mental health and led to my self help book Live your Life Like you have Lived it before’  being published in 2018.


With over 25 years in the health and counselling, and as a certified member of all the leading professional organisations. I have worked with individuals and couples, in Shoreham-by-Sea and across Sussex, on issues including relationships, addictions, sexual problems, anxiety, depression, conflict and lots more.


My accreditations include:


Face to Face Counsellor

I am delighted to be able to offer traditional face to face counselling once again following the relaxation of lockdown rules.

My comfortable room at the Yoga & Wellness Rooms in Shoreham is a safe, quiet and relaxing space to chat and explore feelings and issues.

The space is large enough for couple counselling as well as individual sessions… all current recommended Covid protocols will be followed.


Walk and Talk Counsellor

Is there anything easier than walking and talking? Stripping away the intimidating therapy room and the anxiety induced by a formal appointment, my Walk & Talk  counselling does what it says.

The physical act of walking can really help you understand & process thoughts and feelings, and so it’s the perfect way to help discuss issues that are troubling you.



Safe & Secure Video Counselling

As the Pandemic has made us all engage with technology and look for alternatives ways to communicate, online video based counselling has become increasingly popular. Sessions on video allow the participants to be in a location they feel comfortable to talk


Relationship Counselling

Couples counselling can be daunting process. I create a relaxed environment where individuals feel at ease to express themselves and be affectively listened to.  In feeling safe to open up and talk, it is easier for the couple to explore issues impacting their relationship.

My relationship counselling helps couples with issues ranging from marriage guidance to domestic violence.

Giving you the skills to help you to cope more effectively and feel more in control of your life going forward

Malcolm is continuously supportive and adaptable to my needs. Even after I walk away from my session, his advice resonates with me throughout my week. He just provides comfort.  My sessions with Malcolm have filled me with hope.

Cannot recommend Malcolm enough. Couples counselling has helped us gain new perspectives about each other and the same we can relate overcome challenges and reframe our relationship together.

Malcolm is very easy to talk to and makes me feel safe and secure. Which is very important when you are talking about your most private thoughts and feelings.

Shoreham Woman, 2020

Malcolm was very compassionate… and empathetic with what I had been through. The sessions also helped me find clarity and new perspectives with my relationship.

Worthing Woman, 2019

We had split up when we started counseling, but with Malcolm’s help we are now living together and our relationship is stronger than it ever was.

Malcolm helped me to accept who I am and enabled me to build up trust and form relationships in the future.

Malcolm enabled me in time to come to terms with my identity as a gay man and to be proud of who I am. Thanks to Malcolm I am now in a new relationship and studying for a degree.
