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.
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.

I offer a confidential, calm, welcoming and professional environment in which to explore areas that stop you from having a fulfilled and enjoyable life.
"It is good to talk in a confidential setting about personal issues"
"I have gained more confidence dealing with problems myself"
"Counselling has helped me sort out the mess of thoughts in my head and work out what to do next"
“…a great place to get things off your chest and talk about personal problems.”
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.
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.
