About me

Life doesn't always run smoothly and sometimes we could all use someone to talk to. You may feel guilty, alone, overwhelmed and be struggling to see a way out. I aim to provide a welcoming and safe space in which you can talk about and explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgement or criticism.

Counselling can be the first important step in looking at what is troubling you. My role is not about telling you what to do, it is creating a space for you to express your thoughts and working with you to grow and bring deeper understanding of your ways of relating and responding. It can be difficult to understand how we relate in our world and in our relationships, however, exploring this in therapy can offer you a greater insight into how you are and explore what you wish to be.

Through this exploration we can develop the ability to heal problems of the past and build an internal support system that allows you to make more positive choices going forward. A cornerstone of my work is to help you develop a deeper understanding of yourself, in order that you can take control of your life, rather than letting events control you.

I believe that given the right conditions, people have the potential to make positive change. I aim to give you a sense of being deeply understood, helping you to resolve conflicts that prevent you from enjoying your life in the ways you wish to.

Relationship and Couples Therapy

Creating a safe and non-judgemental space in which couples can talk and investigate their relationship is essential. I understand how difficult relationships are in our times and how everyone suffers if they go wrong. Some relationships run into trouble after the first honeymoon period and many people then feel as if they have done something wrong or are even with the wrong partner. In creative couple work this is understood as a necessary and useful stage in any relationship where real growth can happen. Relationships can offer us a great way to learn and heal if we can harness their potential.

I often find that the key to success lies in finding the right way to communicate – both within the counselling environment and outside it. Problems may seem insurmountable, deadlocks may seem unbreakable but if we are able to listen to each other and hear each other's points of view, compromises and clarity can be reached.

Relationship counselling can also be helpful to couples who want to gain some understanding into their patterns and ways of relating, before difficulties arise and so I also offer pre-nuptial counselling sessions as well.

Therapy Space

I work from a private discreet office in New Haw and Weybridge, both provide ample free parking and are within easy walking distance of the local train station. My rooms are easily accessible from Woking, Weybridge, Walton, Addlestone, Byfleet and West Byfleet.

Training, qualifications & experience

Over a number of years, I studied to achieve a recognised, accredited qualification within the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), of which I am a Registered Member (MBACP).

I am also currently studying for a Diploma in Counselling Supervision which is due to complete in June 2017


FdSc In Integrative Counselling

Bachelor’s Degree (BA) in Counselling

I have many years of experience of working in an effective practice both privately and within charitable organisations such as MIND and Richmond AID. I believe this has enabled me to develop a sound and well integrated style to ensure I tailor my service to you as a unique individual.
