About me

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am a fully qualified counsellor in West Surrey/North West Hants area, specialising in working with couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy.

I offer a non judgemental, supportive space, that is confidential to help client's explore how they are feeling. It can be difficult to access emotions and to express them to someone you do not know. Therefore I take the time to build a relationship with my clients which is solid and built on trust.

Approach: Integrative, Transactional Analysis, Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Format: Long and short term counselling. Fully qualified to work online.

Member organisations


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.
