About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist providing a flexible approach to suit your needs. I usually work in Guildford, Godalming and Farnham offering day and evening appointments for individuals and couples. Whilst we all face the challenges of the Corona Virus I am offering both on-line and telephone counselling. With many people in self isolation and with the encouragement of social distancing it is so important to look after one’s mental well-being.

Counselling is not about giving you advice but provides the space to explore and discover your unique strengths so you can work through issues or ongoing problems you may have been facing for a long time.

Some of the areas I work in include:

- problems within close relationships

- anxiety and depression

- lacking in self worth and confidence in yourself

- stress related issues and anger management

- bereavement including suicide and miscarriage

- living with a life limiting illness.

Couples counselling

Many of us choose to live in a long term partnership - a healthy relationship is an ability to share and be open with your partner enabling you to discuss your needs in a supporting and loving environment. However there may be a number of reasons why the relationship may be floundering such as:

- pressures outside the relationship with friends, children, family
- having lost or not knowing how to communicate our needs to each other
- pressure from work and other commitments

Working with a counsellor can provide the neutral space to discuss what went wrong and to explore ways to resolve them using the couples own problem solving abilities. If the decision has been made to dissolve a relationship counselling can provide support whilst going through this painful process.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA (Hons) Degree in Counselling (University of Greenwich)
  • FdSc Foundation Degree in Integrative Humanistic Counselling (University of Greenwich)
  • Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP)

As well as working in private practice, I work as an associate counsellor at The Fountain Centre, Royal Surrey County Hospital - I provide counselling to people with cancer who may be facing a life limited prognosis as well as working with their carers.

I have worked in a variety of settings including a well-being centre counselling disadvantaged people with long-term mental health issues, learning disabilities and autism.

I have also worked as a counsellor to students at Royal Holloway University.

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-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.
