About me


Approachable and down to earth, I will work with you to understand more fully the root causes of your problems or challenges. Through developing your self-awareness and ability to self-reflect, we will explore your thoughts and feelings and learn new ways of talking about them. In doing so, we will bring about a change in your relationships or circumstances. 

Greater self-awareness and understanding will help you to uncover new ways of listening, and being listened to. You will experience the closeness and completeness that we feel when we are truly understood and able to be ourselves. 

Many of my clients lives and relationships are transformed through counselling. For others, I will help to solve a specific problem, allowing them to move forward with greater confidence and less anxiety

How I work:

Sessions can either take place in my private counselling room in my house in Ascot, or in your own home. I can offer appointments (usually within one week) in the evenings and on Fridays and Saturdays during the day. Online and telephone counselling is also available.

Typically my counselling relationships last between 6-12 sessions. However, sometimes one or two sessions is enough to create the shift that clients are looking for. And occasionally my clients stay with me for longer term therapy. Every relationship varies depending on the needs of the individual or couple. 

My sessions last one hour. In our first meeting I will help you to identify and articulate the issues that are causing you concern. Throughout our relationship I will draw on the range of skills and tools that I have acquired over my 20+ years of experience, tailoring my approach to your needs.

My experience and training tells me that difficulties can be resolved. Clients come to me with a range of issues; most will have tried to work things out for themselves, and may have feelings of hopelessness about making a change for the better.


CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

“From the word go, via my initial email to her, Mova just ‘got’ me.  She gave me the words, space and guidance to recover from a betrayal that I didn’t think I could recover from, and helped guide my husband and I onto the road to repairing our marriage.  I’d highly recommend both Mova and counselling to anyone that believes their relationship is worth fighting for.”


"I sought help from Mova a couple of years ago when I was in a very low state in my personal and professional life. With Mova's gentle guidance I managed to make sense of my situation. Week after week Mova guided me empathetically to find my own solutions and to focus on the positives in my life.
Today I feel strong and ready to embrace my life and this is thanks to Mova's invaluable help."


"New to counselling, I was sceptical on if it would work for me but had reached a point in my life where I knew I needed external support. Mova came highly recommended by a previous client. I found Mova incredibly easy to talk to and she helped me to discuss and open up to find the root cause to some issues. By gaining an awareness of my patterns of thought and behaviour, as well as the reasons for it, I was able to consciously analyse them and remove those which were no longer relevant or serving good purpose in my life. I felt an enormous growth and change in me within a relatively short period of time and increased confidence. I noticed changes within 2 sessions. I highly recommend Mova for anyone seeking a great counsellor". 

“I just wanted to write a quick email to really thank you for everything the counselling you have provided has brought me… Your sessions have changed my life and the way I perceive things. You really did help me get through the darkest period of my life and I will forever be grateful for that. Just having someone to sit there, listen and most importantly help me understand everything definitely has changed the way I think. Of course I still go through my ups and downs but I feel more positive about everything now and I know that if I go back to feeling low I can always go back and see you to clear my head.”

“I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thank you for our last session which was a real ‘eye- Opener’ for me. After reflecting on our discussions, I can really see how the loss of my mother and the ‘wounds’ I carry inside because of it indeed launches this huge tidal wave of pain when I now am confronted with difficulties. Since Saturday I have already had two incidents with this whole divorce hell where I felt the familiar reaction of overwhelming pain and worthlessness creeping up and I did manage to stop myself getting into this awful state by focusing on the actual matter and taking
actions to deal with it immediately rather than seeing myself as a victim and powerless of changing the life around me.”

"From the minute we met with Mova we both felt relaxed, even my husband who was not sure how this was all going to work. Mova really listened to us and just gets it, life, family, relationships and talked to us like real people. Not like a typical counsellor and made us feel this is normal. We did work things out which feels great again and we know her door is always open, cannot thank Mova enough."

“Just wanted to thank you for all your help and support over the last few months. I’m not being complacent or thinking that I’m totally out of the woods but I’ve definitely made huge progress.”

"Mova is a wonderful mix of compassion, insightfulness, wisdom, warmth, and very importantly, well judged humour! She had the ability to understand and clarify our seemingly complicated personal issues, and worked with us to steadily unravel many layers of confusion and sadness, resulting in deeper mutual understanding and a hope for the future through clearly defined and agreed life goals. She never judges - she just understands and her calm, yet dedicated approach to us meant that we could relax and talk, knowing that her expert guidance and support would move us in the right direction."

"My 13 year old son had been suffering with anxiety for 2-3 years before I brought him to see Mova. He had been through the traditional CAHMS programme to no avail. All I can say is that his treatment with Mova was transformational. I saw an anxious child with low self esteem blossom into a more assured, happier and relaxed boy within a matter of a few weeks. When I have asked him what made the difference, he told me that Mova just understood him and enabled him to face his fears and address them, rather than hiding them away and (unsuccessfully) trying to forget them. Mova was always calm and kind with my son, but also gave him the courage to think and feel differently about his fears and himself, with amazing results."


I work in the evenings and a Friday and Saturday through the day in a private room in my home. I have parking and am usually able to offer an appointment within one week. I offer online face-to-face counselling via Skype for those who find travel prohibitive.

Hi Mova,

We saw Mova as a couple for around 8 sessions & always found her to be so easy to talk to, very impartial & full of helpful & practical advice that translated to our daily life. We both felt she was very insightful & somehow seemed to just 'get us' without the need on our part to go into in-depth explanations. We would recommend Mova without hesitation for someone looking for a welcoming, practical & straight-talking counsellor.

Many thanks again for all you did for us,

Hi Mova,

Just wanted to thank you for all your help and support over the last few months.

I’m not being complacent or thinking that I’m totally out of the woods but I’ve definitely made huge progress.

Your advice re. my “date” on Friday night was perfect. We already have the next two “dates” in the diary.

Thank you again and regards

Hi Mova,

I just wanted to write a quick email to really thank you for everything the counselling you have provided has brought me. I have been meaning to write a card but have forgotten every time and if I don't write an email I will never get round to saying my thanks!

Your sessions really have changed my life and the way I perceive things. You really did help me get through the darkest period of my life and I will forever be grateful for that. Just having someone to sit there, listen and most importantly help my understand everything definitely has changed the way I think.

Of course I still go through my ups and downs but I feel more positive about everything now and I know that if I go back to feeling low I can always go back and see you to clear my head (if you'll have me!!)

Thank you so much again,
