About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile.

If you are looking for a counsellor, chances are you are struggling with difficult thoughts and feelings and would like to find some help and support to deal with it. By talking about what's been going on for you I can help you to understand those thoughts and feelings better and look at what tools you need in your toolkit to get back to being you again.

I believe the best way for counselling to work is by exploring with you rather than leading you or trailing behind. I am able to offer insight where it is appropriate and if it seems helpful to you. In this way, you can discover and explore things that you might find hard to face alone with support and empathy. This is always without judgement and in a safe environment.

I am able to work long term or short term, depending on your needs and can also offer telephone counselling although an initial set up, face to face session is required.

As well as working with adults experiencing difficult thoughts and feelings I have experience in working with teenagers and young adults.

I offer a free and confidential telephone consultation. This is often a good chance to find out a bit about counselling and how it works as well as decide if you would like to book an initial appointment. The initial assessment session offers you the chance to meet me and find out about the process and whether it feels like a good fit for you before committing. This session is at a reduced rate of half the fee.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training:

  • Post Graduate Advanced Diploma in Integrative Therapy and Counselling

Experience:

Counsellor at Emotional Support for Carers 2012 - 2016

I provide counselling to support carers from all walks of life to cope with their caring role. This often focuses on feelings of isolation and loss although other issues may arise which I am able to approach using a range of therapeutic interventions due to my training as an integratively trained counsellor. I work in a time-limited, solution-focused way within this charity and often find that although the underpinning of the work is psychotherapeutic, it is delivered in a person-centred way using cognitive-behavioural techniques.

Surrey Drug and Alcohol Care

I provide one to one counselling to people who are experiencing difficulties with addiction and would like to address this issue in their lives. Addiction can be a complex and difficult issue to tackle but through understanding how a person relates to the addiction and substance can often help to learn different ways to cope and behave. Again, as with before, I am able to do this using both a psycho-therapeutic approach combined with CBT which I have found to have a good success rate.

Private Practice

I provide face to face counselling for a range of issues and difficulties such as anxiety, depression, stress and many others. This process is often like an archeological dig, uncovering the layers that often make up the belief systems we have in place that are preventing us from accessing out full potential and happiness. Once we have established these beliefs we can work toward changing them and elevating the symptoms that are making life tough.

I have extensive experience in dealing with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Attachment/relationship issues
  • Addiction
  • Isolation
  • Social anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Abuse; sexual, physical and emotional
  • Low self-esteem
  • Anger management
  • Personality disorders
  • Feelings of being lost/wanting to address the direction your life is taking.

Member organisations

BACP

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

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).
