About me

Confidential counselling for adults, teenagers and children in Surrey based at Fetcham, Leatherhead. Close to Dorking, Epsom, Ashtead, Bookham, Effingham, Cobham, East Horsley, West Horsley, Esher.

My counselling practice is available to clients of all ages. Counselling appointments for adullts, teenagers and children, are available in the Leatherhead area. After school counselling appointments can be arranged for children.

Practicing as an integrative counsellor means I am able to draw from a range of approaches to help clients explore their difficulties. These include psychodynamic, person centred, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), attachment, experiential and existential. Working within a range of different theories can help adults and adolescents to gain insight and understanding of their presenting problems from different perspectives.

For children a therapeutic space is created within which children can explore their issues and feelings and express themselves using art, drama, story telling, sand, puppets and play materials to aid exploration and expression in a safe environment. Counselling children requires special counselling skills adapted to assist children to express themselves using media, this is often referred to as Play Therapy.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
