I appreciate at times life can become incredibly challenging and confusing. The prospect of counselling can also be daunting, but I can be there to support you and facilitate the exploration of your thoughts, feelings and experiences.
Being a qualified Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist means I utilise numerous theories and techniques to help you get the most out of your counselling experience. I draw from various theoretical schools, including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt, Object Relations and the Transpersonal. These combined skills enable me to work from a relational perspective, with a goal to aid your therapeutic outcome through the counselling relationship.
No two clients are the same, so not being bound to a singular approach means that I can adapt to each individual’s needs.
My private practice is based in Woking, where I offer face-to-face (permitting absence of symptoms and in line with government guidelines), open ended or short-term therapy (to young adults and adults).
I also offer counselling sessions via Zoom, WhatsApp or telephone.

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.
