Hi there, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist offering support to adults and young people in Haslemere, Liphook, Godalming and the surrounding areas.
As you are looking at this directory it is more than likely that you or someone you know is struggling at the moment. It may be something that you or they have been having problems with for a while. It could be a recent issue or a number of things that have all come to the fore at the same time. Most people through life encounter difficulties that they have to deal with. For some the difficulties can all become too much and they feel they need support.
As a counsellor and psychotherapist I offer a safe confidential space where you can explore and work through whatever issues you are stuggling with and wish to bring to counselling. It is important to build a strong therapeutic relationship between us so you feel comfortable and supported as you will be dealing with difficult and sometimes very personal thoughts and feelings. We will work together at your pace exploring whatever you wish to bring to each session, empowering you to develop your own strategies to cope and move forward with your life.
I am supportive, non judgmental, and caring with a wealth of life experience. I work in private practise with daytime, evening and weekend appointments. I also work for agencies in local GP practises in the area.
I offer an introductory session which is a chance for you to talk to me and see if counselling is something you would like to proceed with at this point in time. Thereafter I offer a regular slot each week for as long as we agree is right for you.
I am a registered member of the British Association Of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their principles of good practice in their Ethical Framework.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
