I am an experienced, qualified and registered Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I provide professional and confidential counselling to individuals, couples and families, specialising in relationships. I am based in Farnham Common and I am able to offer short-term or open-ended therapy, depending on your needs, in a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment, in which you are able to explore past experiences, current difficulties and future possibilities. I work with an integrative approach, which means that I integrate ideas and insights drawn from different counselling models in order to respond appropriately to the needs of individual clients.
There can be many reasons for seeking counselling or therapy including:
- relationship issues
- loss & grief
- life transitions or simply to discover more about yourself and how you relate to others.
I have specialist training in working with couples and families. I have worked in this area for many years providing support through difficult times, facilitating change and communication and finding ways to move forward.
We are all faced with life’s challenges. Sometimes having time out and talking with family and friends is enough of a support to get us through those difficult times. However, emotions and life experiences or circumstances can sometimes become overwhelming and professional help may be needed. This can include visiting your GP, as well as exploring talking therapies.
I am committed to my own personal and professional development. I do this by attending regular workshops, trainings and seminars; I also participate in monthly supervision.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
