About me

I believe that you have all the resources you need within you - maybe right now you just don't realise it! As your Counsellor I can help you to access these resources and enable you to become the best you can possibly be.

My approach to Counselling is Holistic - I believe that change takes place on all levels, emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual.

My aim is to provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment in which we can work together to bring about the changes you desire.

My private practice is based in North Holmwood, 2 miles from Dorking.

I also offer telephone counselling to clients all over the UK.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and abide by their ethical framework for good practice.

I qualified as a Person centred Humanistic Counsellor in 1995.

In 2004 I added to my counselling skills by completing training as a Master Practitioner in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).

(NLP offers a flexible approach to bringing about fast changes, empowering you to adapt to your ever changing world).

In 2008/09 I completed training as a Couples Counsellor.

I work with clients at a Cancer Help Centre, supporting people whose lives have been affected by Cancer..

I worked at a GP practice for two years and have many years experience as a Bereavement Counsellor.

I am experienced in facilitating face-to-face groups and telephone groups.
