About me

In my 12 years practice experience, clients tell me that finding a counsellor can feel daunting, keep going! Are you feeling unhappy, confused, dis-satisfied, upset about aspects of your life, but everything you've tried hasn't brought the change you've wanted?

What drew me to counselling was a sense of just how much our personal history and modern life takes out of us, and I wanted to find a way of redressing that balance for others. 


I am a BACP accredited  counsellor committed to working in the Guildford area.
I offer daytime and evening appointments in my private, comfortable, relaxed, ground floor office in my house, that opens out onto my garden.  (see a picture of my office below)


I work on a 1-1 or couples basis, short-term and long-term, face-to-face/Skype/phone.

I aim to get an accurate sense of what life is like for you, so together we can work towards the solution to your problem, and find the change you want to make.   This would happen through:
forming a good, solid working [partnership; really listening to you; helping you through knowledge; objective perspective; feedback and utilising all the psychological models at my disposal for your benefit.

Above all, you'll know that you don't have to face your problems alone anymore.

Being a trusted professional is important for me and the counselling industry as a whole, so I continue to train and invest in my skills and expertise for your benefit.
