About me

When darkness falls it can be hard to see our way through, we can lose sight of who we are and what we want for our lives. I believe that in these moments there is nothing more valuable than truly being with another. My way of working is to provide a safe, accepting space where you feel truly seen and heard. Here I can help you to explore the past, understand your present and direct your future.

I am a fully qualified and experienced BACP Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist/Counsellor committed to providing you with a secure and confidential space to facilitate growth and change. My approach involves working through the therapeutic relationship itself, drawing on a variety of techniques to adapt to the individual needs of the client. This might include techniques from psychodynamic, person centred, mindfullness, and solution focused therapies. It is through our relationships that we understand who we are and how we relate to others and the world. I therefore believe that, in order to change and grow, the therapeutic relationship is key.

I currently work privately as part of 'The Practice' in Weybridge as well as Cranleigh School and YMCA in Horsham, where i have worked with a wide range of issues including bereavement, anxiety, bullying, depression, self harm, body image issues, relationship difficulties and anger management. My past experience also includes working in Heathside school, Westfield GP surgery and charities such as Kingston Bereavement Service.

Whatever you are going through, you do not have to be alone. To talk to me in confidence for a free telephone consultation or to arrange a meeting call me on 07548 171173 or email me using the link above.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
