Due to these extraordinary circumstances, for the foreseeable future all my therapy work will be done online via Zoom format. I am familiar with offering sessions online and can provide step by steps guidance on how to use all the technology.
I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw upon a multitude of different theories to best support the uniqueness of each of my clients. Working in this way helps me to be able to adapt to the specific needs of each individual, helping clients understand their life situation so they can strategise to make productive changes.
I am a fully registered BACP counsellor with extensive professional experience. I bring all of my academic training and life experiences to my therapeutic work and offer a bespoke service in which I respond to the individual needs of my clients. The therapy that I provide offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which life, in all its complexity, can be explored.
I have a private practice in Guildford, Surrey, and have also worked in several clinic settings, including Heads Together, Step by Step, Sutton's Women Centre, and 121 Youth Counselling. I have extensive experience in working with clients who present with a full range of issues.
I work with adults, and also have extensive experience of working with adolescents from 14 years of age. I am particularly interested in working with depression, anxiety, phobias, consequences of divorce or separation, and trauma.
I participate yearly in courses and workshops which contribute to my continuing professional development.
I have an enhanced DBS and am fully insured.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
