About me

Hello and welcome to my profile.

We are all in partnership with life, but sometimes we may not feel as if we are.

Could you benefit from a safe, non-judgmental and confidential place to take some time-out ... to explore your thoughts and feelings and find a way forward, helping you lead a more balanced and meaningful life?  No matter how challenging the circumstances, finding peace can be possible.

I am an experienced, qualified committed Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Stress Management Practitioner, Eating Disorder Practitioner and Clinical Hypnotherapist based in Lindford, Hampshire.    I offer counselling and hypnotherapy to all surrounding areas of Lindford, including Guildford, Hindhead, Haslemere, Grayshott, Farnham, Bordon, Alton and Petersfield.

I have been working in private practice since 2003 and my approach is to work alongside clients, listening to the issues that they present with, helping clients to develop specific strategies to reduce conflict, ease transitions - providing clients with the tools that will help them to manage their lives and make decisions.  Enabling clients to find their own unique way forward.

I offer short or long term counselling to:  Teenagers, Adults, Individuals and Couples with the aim of enabling clients to enhance their lives, feel empowered and live more fully.

As well as being a counsellor and psychotherapist, I also write and present workshops for schools throughout the Counties on Exam Stress/Anxiety, Stress/Anxiety Management for Teachers, Self-esteem and Confidence, Eating Issues and Self Harm. For businesses workshops on Stress Management. 

I am extremely passionate about helping people to achieve their full potential in their lives and beat low confidence, low self-esteem, stress and anxiety issues.  

I appreciate how difficult it is for most people to ask for help, but trust me when I say this .... taking that first step is most often the hardest step to take and what follows on from that becomes a way of reclaiming what is rightfully yours ....... Your Life..... Your Journey ..... Your Adventure...

Comments From Past Clients

Christine, Thank you for your investment in me.  For your continued support and encouragement and for your incredible ability to help me find my way through things, to help me to gain perspective and to propel me into being the person that I always have been.  You have an extraordinary strength and energy and you are an uplifting person to be around.  I feel better about the person that I am because of what I have learnt being with you  Surrey

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 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.
