About me

​I am a highly experienced psychotherapist and mental health trainer specialising in integrative therapy for relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression, a range of mental health difficulties and personal development. I am registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP.)

In this period, I am working online and by phone. I have considerable experience of both ways of working prior to COVID19.

I have worked as a therapist and counsellor for more than 20 years and am also experienced with self-esteem, trauma, loss, separation, family issues, identity (personal, sexual and gender), sexual difficulties, infertility, work life, parenting, personal development and life change.

​With a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy, I am able to draw on a range of approaches to choose the best fit for you and your needs.

I work with adults and young adults in Farnham at a location where there is easy access by bus, train and car.

I know it can be hard to reach out for help and will do my best to make the process as easy and comfortable as I can. I am happy to talk by phone before meeting and to answer any questions you may have.

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.
