About me

My Approach

Sometimes life can feel challenging and seeking professional help can ease you through these times. Maybe there are past events that impact your daily life making you feel stuck or unable to more forward. Or maybe you need the opportunity to discuss current issues so that you can reach your own conclusions without opinion or input from family and friends.

Counselling is a personal journey and my role is to be with you, listening and understanding your world as it is for you. Together we can discuss what is important to you in a confidential environment where you can have the time and space to focus on you and understand your troubles.

As an integrative counsellor I draw on a range of theories to tailor sessions to your individual needs. Counselling can help make sense of the past, present and future allowing you to see life in a new light. You can find confidence, self-awareness, happiness and a greater understanding of difficulties.

Helping you find new ways

I help clients with a variety of challenges, including

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Life changing events - bereavement, loss, illness,
  • Feelings - low self-esteem, self-harm, feeling suicidal, loneliness, rejection, negative feelings towards self or others
  • Stress - work, exams, family, life in general
  • Relationships - family, friends, marriage, bullying

Counselling can help you

  • See and make positive changes in your life
  • Have a greater understanding of who you are
  • Become more self-aware
  • See choices to enable you to better cope with the challenges you face

Additional Information

I am an experienced counsellor working with adults and young people (11 plus). I provide confidential counselling that is caring, supportive, respectful and non-judgemental.

I work from professional offices in central Farnham and have evening and daytime availability.   I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation to allow us to both explore how we can work together and answer any questions you have. Making the decision to have counselling is often the biggest challenge, and I hope this opportunity will remove any fear you have.

In addition to my private practice I am also lead counsellor at a 6th Form college.  I also have Iapts experience and mentor university students.

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.
