About me

Professionally trained counsellor working in Godalming and Farnham offering individual counselling to adults and young people. Daytime & evening appointments, £20 introductory session. Experienced working with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, loss and bereavement, self harm, stress, low self esteem and self confidence.

I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk through any issues or challenges that you may be experiencing. I understand that seeking counselling can be a daunting prospect and do my upmost to create an environment where my client feels comfortable and at ease.

My aim is to provide you with a relationship built upon trust, openness and honesty, where you can feel accepted without judgement. A counsellor will not give advice or offer the answers to your problems but will remain alongside you and help you find your own way forward. Working from a Humanistic approach, we will focus upon what is happening for you in the present, however, past and previous relationships clearly affect our present so these are explored as they arise. I take the lead from my client and work at their pace and challenge when appropriate to facilitate different/new perspectives and to help increase self awareness.

Approach:
I work from a Humanistic approach to Counselling, integrating Person Centred, Existential and Gestalt therapies.

Type of clients: Adults 1-1 and Young People 1-1 (From 12 years old)

Format: Face to face long term, short term or time limited therapy.
Ideally attendance will be weekly, at a regular time that is mutually convenient.

Training, qualifications & experience

Ba Hons in Counselling (University of Greenwich)
Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling (University of Greenwich)

My experience has been developed from working with Bereaved/Pre- Bereaved clients and their families at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham. I work one to one offering counselling support to adults and children at the hospice, at home and school. I also plan and facilitate support groups for primary and secondary age children. My current part time role at the hospice includes working with patients and carers through their losses and grief alongside a variety of other issues and challenges.

I have also worked with young people (12-24 years) for the Youth Counselling Service in Guildford (NHS/Virgin Care). This short term work provided a safe space for the young person to understand, explore and find ways to cope with issues like anger, depression, anxiety, self harm and relationship issues.

I have attended a wide range of additional training that includes; Working with Anger, Safeguarding Adults, Working with Relational Trauma and Dealing with Disorganised Attachment, Child Sexual Exploitation, Working Relationally with Addiction, Working Systemically with Genograms and Transactional Analysis 101.

I am committed to my own continued professional development and regularly attend further training to enhance my practice. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their guidelines for ethical practice, which includes regular supervisory support for my client work.
