About me

I have experience in working in many areas of counselling with adults, children and adolescents.

I specialise in working with those affected by sexual trauma from early childhood onwards.

I also specialise in working with children.

I have a private practice in a safe environment in Farnham Town Centre, Surrey.

My approach to counselling is integrative but I also use creative tools and sand tray to enable the therapeutic process where appropriate.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a degree award from Greenwich University. I have been a practicing counsellor and psychotherapist since 2008.

My post qualification training has included working with those affected by rape and early childhood sexual abuse. I have extensive experience in this area and the symptoms of sexual trauma and related dissociative disorders (DID, DDNS, Derealisation and Depersonalisation).

More recently I have specialised in working with children in all areas of childhood issues.

I hold a Level 6 Qualification in Counselling Supervision and a Level 5 Qualification in Counselling Children and Young People.

I am a member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and a member of the BACP Children and Young People Group.

Member organisations


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.
