About me

I am a qualified Counsellor working in Milford and Godalming offering a compassionate, confidential and supportive therapeutic service to Adults and Adolescents.

I believe that we have the capacity and potential to live fulfilled lives but sometimes we experience a ‘stuckness’ and difficulty in flourishing individually, or in our relationships. People often come to counselling having felt stuck for longer than they can remember, and perhaps seeking support for the first time in their lives. It takes great courage to get to this point. You may come to counselling finding it difficult or even painful to articulate or name the problem. The feeling that something is “just not quite right” is often where we start on our journey together.

How I can help


As your counsellor, I am here to develop trust, offer acceptance, empathically listen without judgment, and help you experience a deeper understanding of your feelings (or absence of them). I help you move towards greater independence and encourage personal responsibility. Through working collaboratively, the counselling process will help relieve your distress as you discover insight and find new ways of looking at your situation.

How I work

I respond to each client in an individual way. I am non-directive and take a holistic view of my clients, encouraging wholeness of experience. Together, we will explore your unique personal struggle in a safe and confidential way. Please take a look at my website for more information.

Testimonials

Verity is one of those people who you seek out in troubled times because she is compassionate, kind, patient and above all, genuine. She is a fantastic listener and has the ability to instantly put you at ease. I would like to thank Verity for her invaluable support during some difficult times in my life. Anonymous client

Verity is a very unique therapist in that she is both an experienced art teacher and a counsellor. She can effectively use both these skills in a creative way to help people figure out who they are and how they feel inside. She is very experienced and makes anyone feel comfortable with her calm personality and gentle nature. I know that anyone who would start to work with her would benefit enormously. Tone Tellefsen Hughes DC, BSC, FRCC (paeds) Director of Luck's Yard Clinic.

Verity has always made me feel genuinely listened to and has therefore enabled me to talk about my feelings. This in turn has allowed me to explore my options in a more objective, calm way.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I sometimes use creativity to explore feelings, and may offer drawing, painting, clay/stonework and sand tray to encourage connection with emotions; however, my clients are always free to choose and I follow their pace and direction in every session.

I have an Art/Pastoral Educational background of over 20 years and run Therapeutic Art Workshops for Adults, Adolescents and Children.

My interest in working with young people has led to becoming a Co-Founder, Creative Facilitator and Counsellor for Teen Summit Surrey, promoting confidence, expression and self care for teenagers.
