About me

When we are experiencing distress, painful emotions or dissatisfaction with life, sharing feelings and thoughts, and receiving empathic understanding, can be healing and empowering.  I offer warmth, acceptance and respectful listening; the chance to reflect and express yourself in your own time and in your own way. Counselling and psychotherapy is not about giving advice or fixing a problem but supporting you to use your own inner strengths to move forward.

I am an Integrative, relational Counsellor and Psychotherapist which means that I draw on a range of theoretical approaches and tailor them to you as a unique individual.  I can offer weekly, day or evening sessions in Guildford town centre with nearby parking and public transport.

My experience is within a counselling agency, hospital cancer centre and school, working with a wide range of issues that include grief, bereavement, depression, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, anger, panic, relationship issues, stress, abuse, loneliness, trauma and long term illness.

Special interest

Through my ongoing work at The Fountain Centre in the Royal Surrey Hospital, I have developed a special interest in working with people living with cancer and untreatable cancer and their families.

How I Work

My Integrative approach is based on humanistic, psychodynamic, attachment, Gestalt and cognitive behavioural theories. Above all, I offer a caring and confidential therapeutic relationship where we work together towards your self awareness and acceptance, enabling you to explore your choices. I will value whatever you choose to bring to your sessions - your personal experience.

By reading this, you have taken the first step. Our initial session will give you the opportunity to talk through your reasons for seeking counselling and to choose whether you would like to continue.
