About me

I am a qualified counsellor based in Shere near Guildford and by working from home, I can provide a quiet, safe space, to respectfully listen and help you 'to just talk'. By offering empathy and acceptance without judgement, together we can explore and understand life's difficulties that may be just too overwhelming to deal with alone.

My Approach

As a Humanistic Counsellor, my approach is to respond to my client's uniqueness, being non directive with a belief, that the relationship I develop with my client, is the core to therapeutic healing. I offer confidentiality and compassion to help you experience greater self awareness and deeper understanding of your feelings, enlightening the opportunity for personal growth.

Experience

Alongside my private practice I work as a volunteer counsellor for Age UK and Parent-TIme, both being based in Guildford providing a broad experience including depression, anxiety ,family matters, health issues, work and relationships.

I originally trained and practiced as a Landscape Architect before becoming a mother of three. Motherhood enabled a change in direction for me to work in a supporting role, both in education, and for a Surrey based Family Mediation Service. Through a deeper personal awareness and greater understanding of the difficulties and challenges of family life, I became a counsellor and feel I am able to offer empathy and understanding to those in need of that extra support we all need from time to time.
