About me

Life can be a huge challenge sometimes leaving you feeling overwhelmed, confused, isolated and struggling to cope. It may seem like no-one will understand and the last thing you feel like doing is talking to a stranger, but finding the courage to take that first step in seeking professional, confidential and genuine support can make a real difference to what is happening for you right now, and your quality of life in the future.

About Me

I currently have my own Private Practice in Farnborough and was an Affiliate with The Eaves Counselling and Psychology in Farnham and Guildford. Prior to this I worked at the Farnham and Guildford Colleges as a student and staff counsellor.

In addition to private practice I volunteered for the Rape and Sexual Assault Support Centre (RASASC) in Guildford working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and victims of sexual assault.

Theoretical Approach

As an Integrative Relational Counsellor/Psychotherapist I am qualified in Humanistic and Developmental-Psychodynamic perspectives. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and incorporate Mindfulness into my Practice.

I have received specialised training in the ‘Rewind Technique’ facilitating fast trauma, anxiety, panic and phobia recovery.

Potential Outcomes

Through counselling and psychotherapy you can achieve greater self-awareness and find self-acceptance, harnessing you with the ability to choose how you respond to life’s challenges in a way that is right for you. You can master your unique perceptual lens, and gain insight into how others experience you, giving you the power to build strong and meaningful relationships.

You can gain a better understanding of your emotions, why they make you feel the way they do and learn ways of managing them so they no longer control you. You can learn techniques to contain the unbearable and often humiliating symptoms of stress, anxiety, panic attacks and anger. Our emotions are important and fighting them is a waste of energy that we can put to better use by working out what they are trying to tell us, and channelling them to get us the results we need to thrive, and not just survive.

What to Expect

I provide a safe, empathic and warm space in which a therapeutic relationship of trust, respect and equality can be built. Only you know what it is like to be you, so it is important for you to be listened to, and feel valued and secure enough with me to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to be able to make sense of your experiences or patterns of behaviour without fear of criticism or judgement.

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.

Key details

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.
