Hello & welcome, finding a counsellor takes courage especially when life has become overwhelming, my approach is down to earth & friendly enabling you to talk about whatever is on your mind. I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic & Integratively trained counsellor registered with the BACP, working with the knowledge of many therapeutic skills to suit your individual needs.
I offer one to one sessions in a confidential and safe space in my private practice in Holmwood near Dorking.
I have experience of working with many issues including; anxiety, relationship issues, depression, divorce, panic disorders, eating disorders, body image issues, lack of confidence & self esteem issues.

Together we can think about how past experiences in life may have impacted on your ability to cope and function day to day.
