About me

I am a BACP Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor in private practice in Banstead, Surrey.  I am within easy reach of both Banstead and Woodmansterne train station.

I work with people who may be facing a wide range of issues and difficulties that they feel are preventing them from getting on with their lives.  Some may be feeling low or depressed, or anxious about things they previously took in their stride.  Others may be finding the stress of work, school, or family life difficult to cope with.  Perhaps they are experiencing problems in their relationships with friends, partners or are suffering from low self esteem. 

Changes in their lives may have left them feeling confused, helpless, or angry without really knowing why.  They may feel lost, frightened, or 'out of control' following the ending of some stage of their life or the beginning of a new one.

For many, these feelings can be quite overwhelming at times: "I don't know what's happened to me", "I never used to be like this", "I don't know why I do these things, think these things, feel these things..."

Psychotherapy and counselling allows clients the opportunity to talk through their feelings, to be listened to, and to find their way out and on to a fuller, more balanced and enjoyable life.

Member organisations

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also offer Inner Child Healing.

What is Inner Child Healing?

Inner Child Healing is a deep and profound psychotherapeutic healing experience.  It goes to the source of the problem and cuts through much of the intellectual chatter which prevents us from living our dreams.  We connect and heal the inner child in order to become whole and feel joyful and loving.  Inner Child Healing is generally done through a combination of traditional talk therapy, guided meditation, heart-centered talking therapy and breathwork.  Inner child healing has roots in Jungian therapy as well as addiction recovery work, but is useful for many problems.

Who is the Inner Child?

The inner child is the creative, spontaneous, loving, trusting, confident and spiritual part of us that may have gotten lost or learned to hide earlier in life due to feelings of fear and shame stemming from experiences of trauma and betrayal.  This may have been due to abuse, mistreatment, misattunement or misunderstanding in childhood.  It is a rare child who has adults around him or her all the time who are able to be fully present to his or her aliveness.  As adults, we can return to childhood memories and ‘retrieve’ and heal that lost or hidden part of us to bring creativity, spontaneity, love, trust confidence and deep spirituality fully back into our lives.

Further information

I also offer Transpersonal psychotherapy.

Transpersonal therapy is practiced within the context and knowledge of traditional therapeutic methods of counselling and psychotherapy.

However, it also adds other techniques such as, guided visualisation, inner child healing, dream awareness, breath work and meditation.  Transpersonal therapy does not espouse a particular religious or spiritual view.  Rather it acknowledges the importance of developing inner resources as well as inner qualities upon a spiritual path or not.  It offers approaches from various spiritual paths including Buddhism, Native American Spirituality and Shamanism.  Transpersonal psychotherapy honour's Carl Jung’s belief that healing and growth occur through experiences of mystical and transcendent consciousness.  “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience.  We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”Teilhard de Chardin
