About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy across Surrey with availability currently in Esher, Godalming and Guildford. My aim is to create an environment where you feel safe and comfortable to talk through your concerns. My approach is warm, empathic, and confidential, giving you an opportunity to feel heard and supported.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with Honours at Middlesex University in Integrative Relational Counselling and I am now a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP). My training is integrative encompassing developmental, psychodynamic, gestalt and humanistic perspectives. This means that I am able to fit my counselling and psychotherapeutic approach to your individual needs. I believe our therapeutic relationship is important and I strive to generate trust within our relationship which will enable you to open up and get the most out of the session.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
