About me

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Surbiton and Tolworth. I offer a warm, non-judgmental and confidential space in which you can talk freely and openly about your life, worries and stresses.

How I can help

It can be hard to take the decision to see a therapist when there are so many competing demands on our time and our resources. It can also feel like a big step to take. I believe that we should look after our mental health in the same way that we look after our physical health. Talking therapy can be an important tool in supporting this. Whether you are feeling low or stressed, or whether you simply want to understand yourself better, I can help you explore your feelings and difficulties so that you can gain some clarity, make positive changes and feel better.

I am trained in an integrative relational approach to psychotherapy which means my main focus is on developing a warm and therapeutic relationship with my clients. I draw on elements of humanistic and psychodynamic theory and I also use CBT where this may be helpful.

Next Steps

It is really important that you feel comfortable with your therapist. I offer a free, no-obligation initial half-hour telephone session so that you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you. During this session, you can tell me a little about yourself and what you hope to get from counselling. I can also answer any questions you may have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Roehampton University) and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have experience working in the NHS, in a GP surgery, and in a counselling agency. Alongside my private practice, I manage a counselling service for an autism charity and I have a particular interest in supporting people on the autism spectrum and their families.
