Hannah Regan Psychotherapist, FdSc Counselling, Registered MBACP
Uncertainty and fear of the unknown can trigger unsettling feelings for many of us. It is perhaps when we experience this sense of unease that we explore how counselling might help.
In light of the coronavirus outbreak I would like to reassure all potential new, current or returning clients that sessions can be conducted online via Zoom or Skype, as well as over the telephone. Should you have any questions concerning this please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Social distancing or isolation does not have to be a barrier to you reaching out and getting the support you need. You don’t have to face life’s challenges alone.
As a qualified, experienced counsellor I offer a safe, private and respectful space where we can explore and reflect on the challenges or struggles that have been thrown your way. It may be that you're feeling anxious, unhappy or unfulfilled with where you find yourself - together we can talk it through and by developing greater self-acceptance and understanding help bring positive change to your life.
My work covers a broad range of personal and work related issues that include loss, bereavement, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, sexuality, anger and long-term illness. I work on a 1-1 basis and according to what suits your needs best, therapy can be either short-term or long-term.
Finding a counsellor may feel a daunting process, but to help you through this I offer a free 30 minute face-to-face meeting to discuss whether counselling is right for you. I will also gladly answer any questions by phone or email without further obligation.
I offer daytime sessions from the comfort and privacy of my home in Shalford, Guildford which is also just a short distance from Godalming and neighbouring villages including Bramley, Wonersh and Chilworth. Free parking is available.
Training, qualifications & experience
FdSc Humanistic Counselling
NCFE Counselling Skills and Theory, Levels 1-3
As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to its Ethical Framework and attend regular supervision.
Alongside my private practice I have spent a number of years working as a volunteer counsellor at the Fountain Centre; a charity that supports cancer patients, their families and carers. This experience has led me to develop a special interest in working with people coming to terms with life changing or terminal illness and grief.
How I Work
I am a Humanistic counsellor which means my approach is rooted in the ‘here-and-now’ of how we live our life. Past experiences and relationships are explored in terms of the impact they have on the person we are today. To support this l integrate Person-Centred therapy with Gestalt and Existential philosophy as part of a therapeutic approach that strives to raise a deeper awareness and understanding of feelings, encourage greater personal responsibility and help individuals realise their potential.
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.
