Professionally qualified and experienced, I have been working in caring professions for over twenty years. I have worked with clients from every walk of life and with a wide range of issues. We are all human, we all suffer, have difficulties and we can all improve the quality and experience of our lives.
I am based five minutes from Dorking and twenty minutes from Guildford in the beautiful Surrey Hills.
In addition to my accredited counselling training I also have a 1st Class Honours degree in Psychology. This gives me a much deeper and informed understanding of things like depression, anxiety, memory systems and relationships than most counselling courses can provide. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and was a member of the British Psychological Society for 18 years.
I offer a confidential, warm, non-judgemental and respectful relationship in which, together, we can explore your difficulties. I have the professional training, skills and experience to help you to help yourself. Being heard, without being judged or told what to do, can help you to discover more about yourself and what is bothering you, what you want from life and ways to get more from your life. Even if the issue is itself impossible to change, for example an illness or trauma, you can still change the way you live with the issue.
My primary approach is Person-Centred but I also draw on other approaches depending upon your needs. When clients want specific techniques to help manage persistent difficult thoughts or feelings, I can support you using ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) and Mindfulness.
I work in open-ended counselling or am happy to contract for time-limited counselling. I also have a few low cost spaces available; please email for details.
I have regular supervision with a qualified supervisor and participate in a peer supervision group.
I am a committee member for a charity based service which provides Continuing Professional Development workshops. This allows me to have greater access to a wide range of training which enhances and updates my practice on a regular basis.
I am fully insured and work to BACP code of ethics.

I see clients in my home next to the beautiful Surrey Hills in Westcott, less than five minutes from Dorking. It is a family home and there are pets in the house; whilst the pets do not join us for counselling it may not be suitable for people with extreme allergies. My counselling room is on the first floor and there is a small step into my house.
