About me

It is not always easy to cope with life's problems or difficulties, especially when feeling overwhelmed and unsure. By reading this you have made an important step towards addressing those aspects of your life that are troubling you and bring about change.

I am a qualified and experienced psychoanalytic psychotherapist and counsellor and a member of the BACP and UKCP.

How to start:

Please feel free to phone or email me so that we can get a clearer picture of what you are looking for.  If you would like to go forward we will arrange an initial consultation, at a reduced fee, without obligation, to meet and talk about your requirements.

If you choose to work with me we will meet once, twice or three times a week for 50 minute sessions in a safe and private consulting room.

The length of therapy depends on what you want to achieve and the types of issues you bring. My training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy means that I am able to work with you up to three times a week if you feel that you would like to work at a deeper level. I am also experienced in offering short-term therapy for a set number of sessions usually between six to twelve.

My consulting room is located in Redhill, within easy reach of main bus routes and a 10 minute walk from Redhill station. It offers a safe, secluded and private setting in which to talk about the issues that are troubling you.  Sessions are available both during the day and in the evening.

My approach:

I provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space for you to explore difficulties and concerns. I can help you become more aware of yourself, your strengths and difficulties and explore how past experiences may be holding you back.

My approach is psychoanalytic, however I am trained and experienced in finding ways that suit each individual.

I am experienced in helping with issues such as sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, relationship and family difficulties, bereavement, post-natal depression, domestic abuse, phobias, loss, separation, divorce, addiction, self-harm, stress, anger and frustration.

I also work as a therapist to student and trainee counsellors.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

UKCP

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
