About me

Hello and a warm welcome. My name is Chris and I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist offering face to face and online therapy to adults who may be experiencing trauma, bereavement, and stress-related problems.

About me

I am an integrative counselling psychotherapist working in private practice in Farnham, Surrey. I have experience in working with individuals in the armed forces, civil servants, and people working and living in high-stress environments. By forming a trusting therapeutic relationship, which is both gentle and challenging, I walk alongside you and help you to try and make sense of feelings and help identify any issues that could be preventing you from living life with maximum potential.

How can therapy help?

Life can sometimes be confusing and upsetting. A major event or a series of smaller events can disturb our internal equilibrium and prevent us living life to its full potential. By sharing issues with someone who is trained to listen and attune to clients' material, helping them to unpick areas of confusion and upset.

There can also be issues from the past that result in repeated patterns of behaviour in the here and now that also prevent experiencing life to its full potential. In these cases a longer term psychotherapeutic approach can bring healing and acceptance from previous trauma or absent parenting.

My approach

I offer short term counselling sessions and longer term psychotherapeutic sessions.

As an integrative counselling psychotherapist my work is informed by humanistic models such as Person Centred and Transactional Analysis and Psychodynamic/Psychotherapeutic models.

Therapy is tailored to the individual client/patient according to their needs and what they wish to get from therapy.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
