During the Covid-19 pandemic, I am able to support you face to face via secure video link or phone, from the comfort of your own home, at a mutually convenient time.
Feel free to call or email me to book a free 20 minute consultation.
I am a qualified and professionally trained counsellor with a warm and caring approach. I am based in Farnham town centre and am available for daytime and limited evening appointments as well as online counselling. I offer individual therapy to adults and teenagers aged 16 and over.
I have experience of working with issues such as stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, loss and family issues. I can offer you a calm space in a comfortable environment, where you may explore your feelings and emotions.
How Can Counseling Help?
Sometimes we can feel sad, confused, anxious, angry, stuck or isolated. It takes courage to make the first step to start counselling, but often it is helpful to talk to a trained professional who has no emotional connection to you and who can offer you an objective perspective. Does it feel as if things are spinning round in your head and it's hard to make sense of them? I see my role as helping you join the dots in your life.
I can offer you the private space to reflect on your emotional struggles, and I can support you in understanding yourself and those around you better.
What Can I Expect in a First Session?
I would like to offer you a free 20 minute consultation so that we can look at what has brought you to counselling and whether I am best suited to support your needs. You can choose whether you would like to book a first session.
In our first 50 minute session I may talk more than usual, I may ask a number of questions; this is so I can best understand where you are now and how you got to be there. I will also give you the opportunity to ask me any questions. This is your counselling journey but I will be beside you on it.
I offer individual, face to face counselling to adults and teenagers aged 16 and over.
If you are looking for warm and professional counselling support I am available for daytime and limited evening appointments. Email, Text or call for a free telephone consultation so we can see if we feel comfortable working together.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

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).
