About me

For those struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, sleep and relationship problems, my therapy room is a place where all my clients can unmask and be their authentic selves, and Autistic/ADHD clients can stim freely without judgment.

I can appreciate seeking counselling can be a daunting and overwhelming time for anyone,  so I like to take a slow and relaxed approach in my sessions and get to know the client and their individual needs.

It is important to me that we go at the clients pace at all times and that my clients feel comfortable and at ease with me. 

I have a deep empathy for the neurodivergent experience (ASD/ADHD) and the suffering it can cause, and aim to offer compassion and a judgement free safe space for all my clients. 

I am also LGBTQ friendly and consider myself an ally to the LGBTQ community.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with all neurotypes but my experience and training has enabled me to work effectively with neurodivergent clients (ASD/ADHD) as I am more aware of sensory overload, overstimulation and autistic burnout. For those struggling with eye contact my rooms can easily be adapted to suit clients needs.

I endeavour to help my clients regulate themselves and welcome requests for reasonable adjustments, so they can get the most out of our sessions together.

My degree in intergrative psychotherapy enables me to integrate different skills I'm trained in to adapt to my clients vastly varying needs, whilst giving empathy, compassion and a safe space to heal.

In addition to the traditional talking therapy I like to use art, sand play, pebbles and gestalt therapy in my sessions.

I also have additional qualifications and training in

• Art and Design (Diploma)
• Shame
• Child Sexual Abuse

• Mental health of Autistic teenagers 

Member organisations

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.

Further information

I have calm, quiet, discreet rooms in Camberley (Deepcut) and Guildford with various availability,  please feel free to ask me my current availability as it may vary from my website

Initially, I offer a 15 minute free phone session to determine whether or not we might be able to work together. 

If so, our first full session will entail us briefly going through the therapeutic contract together. This keeps us both safe and outlines the boundaries going forward for therapy. 

I will take some personal details with your consent, and I will listen to your needs, any questions you may have, and what you are hoping to get from therapy.

Following this our session will commence and this will be led by you at your own pace.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The Camberley practice is wheelchair accessible
