About me

Sometimes life seems more difficult to cope with than normal. Other times we may want to break out of an ever recurring cycle. If this sounds familiar counselling might be right for you.

I am an experienced senior accredited Counsellor and work in a humanistic/person centred way. Over the years I have worked with clients on a variety of issues like anxiety, anger, depression, abortion, abuse, relationship issues,self esteem, stress, chronic illness and loss. I offer a personal, confidential, non judgemental service and hope to offer therapy to suit you. I see my role as helping you to explore what is on your mind and by so doing open up new ways of thinking and moving on.


I work with clients of all ages from 10 years upwards.. 
In addition I have extensive experience working with adolescents. I have knowledge of special educational needs like dyslexia, AS, autism and global difficulties.

I am also a trained bereavement/loss counsellor and have experience in working with terminal ill clients and their relatives and the bereaved.

I provide a safe place in which to explore areas of difficulties and to work together towards moving to a better place in life in a confidential and professional way. On many occasions I have been privileged to see clients discover new ways of coping and enjoying life to the full again.

I offer both, short term and long term 1:1 counselling depending on individual needs. I am an accredited member of BACP and a senior accredited member of The National Counselling Society (MNCS). I am registered with UKRCP and adhere to the BACP Code of  Practice and Ethics and I am fully insured.

I work mainly from my home address. North Holmwood can easily be reached from Dorking. There is parking available on the road. On the first appointment we can assess if this is the right setting for you. I have the option of renting a room in Dorking should this be required.

Appointment availability can be discussed on first contact.

Knowledge of German and Italian if needed.

“…a great place to get things off your chest and talk about personal problems.”

Client AH

Talking to Monika, I quickly started to feel that I had more space in my head. I became more able to make sense of what had seemed like a huge muddle. Monika has helped me to see that it is worth taking the time to think about how I am, and that I am worth that time! As a result I am much less afraid to consider what I really want and to make some important changes.

Client J

It was a very strange and scary prospect talking to someone I don't know. But Monika was engaged with me at all times and made it all easy to get through. What and invaluable service. You have given me my life back and I will always be thankful.


Client K

In reflecting on our time together, I find myself enormously grateful that from the first session you created an atmosphere where it felt safe to do the work I needed to do.  I was always confident that you were listening attentively, and that you would meet whatever I said with acceptance.  And your comments and questions showed a great skill in channelling the energy I brought to the sessions into a positive and fruitful direction.  The time we spent together has made a great difference in my life, and I feel very fortunate to have had you as my therapist.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
