About me

My name is Babs and I am a counsellor and mindfulness teacher in the Fleet and Farnham area. My aim is to provide you with a calm, safe and supportive space to talk about what is troubling you; counselling can help you understand and deal with your situation better. I will listen, respect your needs and acknowledge your feelings to help you explore your options and alternatives.   You will not be judged, analysed or told what to do and we will work together to find a way forward, suitable for you – one step at a time. 

Our relationship will be based on honesty, acceptance and understanding.  I believe that: - we are shaped by our past and environment; - we have freedom of choice; - we are responsible for our own lives; - given the right support you can find meaning and happiness within your limitations.

As an Integrative counsellor I use a flexible approach, which I adapt to meet your needs.  Counselling can be challenging but you will also find it incredibly rewarding.

It is important that you feel comfortable and safe with your therapist; this is why I offer an INITIAL CONSULTATION for a reduced fee (£30) to discuss your concerns, explain how I work and answer any questions you may have. We will talk about what you hope to gain from counselling and how we could work together to achieve your goal.

My fee thereafter is £40.00 per 55 - 60 min session.

I also offer workshops and courses in mindfulness training/meditation. I teach on a 1-2-1 basis or in a group format and also run corporate training sessions.
