We are Maureen Jones and Helen Dixon, both fully qualified professional counsellors.
Our Mid Surrey Counselling Practice provides supportive one to one counselling/therapy for adults. We are room based and online.
We offer lower cost fee rates where needed and flexible appointment patterns to suit busy lives. We are conveniently placed between Redhill/Reigate and Dorking. Parking is easy and free.
One of us will aim to meet with you within a week of hearing from you.
How we can help
With each of us, you can express yourself openly without worrying about being judged. We will help you to explore your concerns - whatever they are.
Perhaps you’re struggling with life, events or relationships and unable to face or make changes. You may be troubled by past experiences or by worrying behaviours or feeling stressed, anxious, or depressed. Sometimes, we can’t even pinpoint what’s wrong but just feel sad, or confused about what direction to take.
It's worth saying too that you don’t need to be distressed to benefit from talking to an objective professional - sometimes it just helps to talk things through.
We each offer both open ended and shorter term counselling in a supportive therapeutic relationship where you will find respect and acceptance whatever is affecting you.
Through our sessions, you will be able to develop a greater understanding about yourself and what might be holding you back from feeling more at ease with life and its challenges. We will support you to work things through and make more sense of your feelings and experiences.
We believe that our working together within a strong therapeutic relationship will help you to move forward (perhaps making changes if that's what you're seeking) and to feel better about the things that are troubling you now.
Training, qualifications & experience
We each have a Certificate in Counselling Skills and Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. This is supplemented by additional training, including short courses; and by mental health related experience, for example, in supporting self-help groups (including for hoarding and bi-polar).
We have past and current experience working at charitable/community based counselling practices, dealing with a wide range of issues, in both Sussex and Redhill.
Our counselling training and experience builds on our own diverse personal experiences of life and its problems. This includes earlier careers outside the counselling sector which brings further insights into our work as therapists.
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.
