I work with individuals, couples and families at a relaxed and well-established clinic in Woking. I offer face to face and online sessions.
I specialise in individual work and my approach is a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive and mindfulness therapies, which allow a deeper resolution of presenting issues. Sessions are usually weekly at the same time each week for 50 minutes.
Sessions are usually fortnightly leading to monthly and are 75 minutes. Following an initial session as a couple, each individual has a one to one session to clarify your own relationship goals before starting couples therapy together.
Further details of the therapy:
I work from a psychodynamic perspective which essentially means exploring together the patterns and themes that have occurred and possibly reoccurred in your life. The idea is that the more we reflect on these patterns or repetitions, which we all encounter, the easier it becomes to break free of unwanted cycles.
This therapeutic process of reflection can open up meaningful possibilities, and new ways of feeling about one's situation and personal and family history.
I have a post qualifying certificate in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), and can draw on a number of other approaches including Jungian personality typing (similar to mbti), mindfulness, cognitive analytical therapy/mapping, and mind body work. Having this combination of therapies means I can tailor the sessions to the needs of each individual, couple or group, both initially and throughout the therapeutic journey.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work to a strict code of ethics and values. I am fully insured.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
