About me

When life feels overwhelming counselling offers time to understand how life events have a significant impact on our relationships, emotional health and resilience.

I am an accredited counsellor and qualified supervisor, supporting clients with arrange of issues including anger, anxiety, depression, panic , stress, relationship and family issues , loss, bereavement, separation, divorce and low self esteem. I work from comfortable rooms in Redhill and Reigate offering both long-term and time-limited counselling.

Why counselling can help ?

Sometimes  we reach a point where we don't know how to cope emotionally or make sense of what is wrong. Counselling  offers time and space for you talk in confidence without feeling judged and to understand why you feel as you do and what you want to change.

Issues that may bring people to counselling include relationship breakdown, betrayal , depression, stress, anger, generalised anxiety, loss, life transitions and a general feeling of not coping and low self-esteem.

Counselling can be an empowering and life changing experience but initially can often feel daunting. Our first meeting will be an opportunity for us to meet without obligation and talk through what difficulties you are dealing with and for you to decide if counselling feels right.

What is counselling ?

Counselling is more than just listening, although to be really heard without judgment can be a powerful experience itself.  I will not tell you what you should do or should change but recognise that you are the expert in your life and we each have our unique life experience and individual needs. My aim is to provide a space to explore in a safe and non judgmental way what has brought you to this point and support you in finding a way forward to achieve your counselling aims, improve your own self- worth and relationships


Type of counselling offered

My approach is an integration of a compassionate approach to Cognitive Behavioural therapy which helps identify and change unhelpful thinking habits and Solution Focused.Together we will work to help you understand how past events and relationships have affected your thoughts and behaviour. Enabling you to look at how you can manage your thoughts and change unhelpful behaviour and supporting you in achieving your counselling aims.

Studies show that it is often the trust and relationship formed between the counsellor and client which is more effective in achieving a successful counselling outcome for the client rather than the counselling model used.

Ethical practice

In line with professional guidelines I maintain regular supervision for my client work and on going professional development and training. Recent training includes stress management and its effects Post Natal Depression, Self Harm and Post Traumatic Stress

Practical issues

Sessions will be weekly and last for 50 minutes. The number of sessions needed will usually depend on the complexity of issues raised. However, ultimately it is you, the client, who will determine the number of sessions needed.

All work is face to face and can be either long-term or time limited with individual adults

Our first meeting is a no obligation client consultation where we will discuss the counselling process and agreement and what has brought you to consider counselling and any questions or concerns that you may have.
