About me

Welcome to my counselling page.

I offer short and long term counselling to adults in a calm and non judgemental environment. The first session is free of charge, which allows you to see how the counselling process is for you, before continuing.


Whatever you are finding difficult at this moment in time i offer a warm compassionate and non-judgemental approach to therapy.

I have extensive experience supporting people of all ages, these issues may be:

  • Stress, Anxiety and Depression
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self Esteem
  • Attachment issues
  • Grief and Loss
  • Addiction
  • Family members affected by addiction
  • Guilt and Shame
  • Loss of identity
  • Anger Management

I have considerable experience working around issues relating to Addiction. I am currently working as an Addiction Therapist in a residential treatment centre in Surrey. Which includes working with clients who have experience issues relating to the abuse of drugs and alcohol, gambling, sex and love addiction, depression and anxiety, abuse of prescription drugs and co-dependency. In addition to working with clients who are in active addiction entering into recovery I also work with families affected by addiction in the form of 1:1 work and also group therapy.

I have experience as a bereavement counsellor at a local hospice in West Sussex working with people who have experienced the loss of a loved one. This can be a very difficult time and through sessions can allow for the chance to process thoughts and feelings and the opportunity to heal.

All sessions are confidential. If you are new to counselling and the counselling process please get in touch as i am happy to answer any questions
