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.

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.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
