About me

Counselling

Whatever your reason for coming to counselling, my role is to support you without judgement and to provide a safe environment in which you can begin to explore your thoughts and feelings. Healing happens within the therapeutic alliance that we will form together.

Specialist Addictive/Compulsive behaviour support

If you are struggling to control certain substances or behaviour I would like you to know that there is help available. I am passionate about supporting people to recover from addictive or compulsive behaviours. I provide a safe, caring and non-judgemental environment with therapeutic interventions supported by the most up-to-date research.

About me

My private therapy practice in Bookham, Surrey was established in 2013, offering counselling, coaching and training to individuals and businesses. Alongside my general practise, I also offer specialist support to people experiencing problems with addictive or compulsive behaviours. Prior to training as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, I spent 18 years in the corporate world, including 10 years as a business director.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), hold a Senior Coaching Qualification, accredited by the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) and am currently studying for a MSc in Addiction Psychology

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

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.
