Pippa Rashbrook BA (Hons) Couns Reg MBACP Accred
I counsel young people and adults in Woking and Guildford, Surrey, helping with issues ranging from depression, SAD, anxiety, panic disorder, relationship issues to bereavement, loss and trauma.
How Counselling Can Help
My passion is to help people overcome issues they feel limit them, to enable them to live more satisfying, fulfilled lives. We all have times when life just doesn't seem to work how we would like it to. I provide a professional space where your concerns can be explored safely and confidentially, allowing you to come to a greater understanding of yourself. You can then make more informed choices going forward, bringing a greater sense of wellbeing. I tailor my work to each individual, drawing from my extensive training background and experience.
I work with young people (adolescents) through to adults, and the many varying, unique issues they bring, in Woking, Surrey, and provide a quiet, calm space to work together. I also work as a counsellor at the Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford with the students, and at a girls secondary school.
My work is ‘person-centred’ which means you and your unique issues and needs are my central concern. I work at your pace, to avoid any overwhelm. My belief that we all have intrinsic value and are unique, comprising of body, mind, soul and spirit, is reflected in my work where I provide a peaceful, un-judging space to hear and work with your concerns.
I have a particular interest in trauma recovery – be that from growing up in difficult circumstances or ‘one off’ traumatic incidents. The legacy of physical, mental and emotional symptoms that traumas can leave behind are worked with in a sensitive, gentle, respectful way. I have trained with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, based in Colorado, USA, which is dedicated to trauma recovery.
