I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Farnham offering a safe, confidential space to talk. Experience includes anxieties, depression, bereavement and relationship issues. I welcome Adults, young people 16+
Making the decision to seek counselling can be an overwhelming and apprehensive time. I offer a safe, empathic and non judgemental space in which you are able to explore aspects of yourself in confidence. I aim to value you as an individual, nurturing your capabilities and strengths, encouraging psychological growth and potential for change.
I follow an integrative approach to counselling and I believe that valuing each one of us an individual is essential. I am able to tailor counselling approaches and methods to suit your needs creating a personal experience. I am able to work with current issues as well as past experiences that may assist you in your psychological development. I use a range of techniques from empathic listening, art, and other creative mediums.
I consider our relationship as a key factor in your therapeutic experience and believe that strong authentic relationships enhance healing and allows for personal development.
