About me

Working in private practice at home or if you prefer at Esher Green GP Surgery and serving Esher, Oxshott, Cobham, Thames Ditton, Molesey and the surrounding areas. I also have many years experience offering online and telephone sessions.

I provide a confidential, safe and supportive space for people looking to talk about depression, bereavement, anxiety, pre/postnatal depression, relationship difficulties, addictions, work related issues as well as anger management.

Can I help?
I am a professionally qualified, experienced psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of emotional problems and have many years experience working with feelings of depression, anxiety and bereavement, addiction and postnatal depression.

I work with most of the large private medical insurance companies, so do get in touch to find out more.

The aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to create a confidential, non-judgemental place for you to think and talk about your difficulties freely. By understanding more about yourself and by developing a greater self awareness about patterns that are unconsciously repeated , it may be possible for you to find different ways of coping with painful situations and feelings. This, in turn, may help you to make different choices in your life.

Further information

A difficult decision?
Sometimes, deciding to go to a counsellor or psychotherapist can be a difficult step. Some people feel a sense of failure if they haven’t been able to sort out their problems by themselves. Others may find the idea of counselling or psychotherapy daunting. Therefore, it may help you to know a bit more about how therapy works and how I work to assist people in understanding and dealing with their emotional problems. I hope this website will answer some of your questions, and help you decide whether counselling or psychotherapy is for you.
