About me

Most people, at some stage or another in life, feel confused, anxious, depressed, isolated, stressed, or unable to cope

  • You may find yourself stuck in negative patterns of behaviour, not knowing how to break free and move forward?
  • You may know there's something wrong and would like to make a change but are unsure of where to start?
  • You may have undertaken counselling before and prefer to look for a different counsellor or approach this time?

It is often useful to get someone's perspective on things who is objective, understanding and who will not judge you, someone who isnt a family member or close friend. To take the time and space to explore your feelings, to try to make sense of them in a way that you may not have done before; to help put the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together.

About me

I am warm, supportive, insightful and trustworthy. My greatest strength, as a Counsellor, is my ability to show sensitivity and compassion to people from a wide variety of backgrounds on a wide range of issues; no issue is too small. I am worldly wise, having travelled extensively, and I lived and worked in all four corners of the U.S. for 14 years. I adopt a holistic approach which looks at the whole person and I encourage that person to tap into their own inner strength and resources.

I have 18 years experience. I work integratively, incorporating a range of different approaches and I use and adapt these approaches according to the issues my clients bring. Over the 18 years, I have worked with people who have brought a wide range of different problems. The following are examples of such issues: Relationship difficulties/conflict resolution/communication strategies, anxiety, stress management, depression, addictions, bereavement, eating disorders, abuse, anger management, bullying, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, trauma, work related issues, multicultural issues, life balance, social skills & assertiveness, low self-confidence/self-esteem, sexuality, parental guidance, young peoples issues', life coaching and personal growth and development.

Although I do not specialize in any one area, I do have a particular interest and expertise in relationship counselling.

I have also worked, part time, for Surrey County Council Youth Service for the past 12 years. I help and support young people and their families from disadvantaged and chaotic backgrounds with their very complex problems.

About the way I work

If, after the initial session, we decide we are comfortable working together, we will then work toward achieving those goals. I believe that you do not need to attend for longer than is necessary for you to achieve your goals. I work in an active, participatory style, using the Cognitive Behavioural approach when appropriate, and I guide clients in exploring their options/choices in life.

Towards the end of the process, I do some Life Coaching, for example, encouraging clients to look at their strengths, achievements and future goals. All my clients leave counselling feeling they have gained a greater sense of self-understanding/awareness and self-esteem. They are more effective communicators and more emotionally literate, generally. Their relationships become stronger as a result. Having clarified a way forward, they feel they can now take back control of their lives and move forward more confidently.

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2002 I achieved BACP Accreditation. This means that the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists recognise I have achieved a high level of BACP training, best practice and counselling experience.

I keep my skills up to date with regular training and continued professional development. I hold a clear current Enhanced CRB check.
