About me

Do you need to talk? Are you going through a difficult time and wanting to make sense of your feelings?


I specialise in:

Stress management
Self-esteem & Confidence issues
Individual Counselling
Couples Counselling

I believe you are unique and that you view the world in an individual way. Much of the work that we will do is to explore what it is that makes you you. This may involve looking at your childhood, your values and your relationship patterns in a supportive and non-judgemental way. I believe in gently encouraging you to reach your full potential.

I use Mindfulness to help you engage with your experience of being in the world. Mindfulness is paying attention on purpose to the present moment without judgement. The potential benefits of this are stress reduction; a calmer mind; increased concentration, to name just a few. I have been practising Mindfulness personally for over 20 years and can coach you in Mindfulness as a part of therapy if you wish.

You may come to therapy because of a particular crisis or difficulty in your life. Simply telling your story can be enormously beneficial. But you don't need to be in crisis to benefit from therapy. Maybe you just want to explore your life in a more philosophical way. I offer a safe space for that exploration.

I offer online counselling on Zoom and outdoor Walking Therapy in local parks and woodland in the Camberley area.

Walking therapy is much like traditional face to face counselling but we meet outdoors for a walk instead of sitting opposite each other in a room. Being out in nature can provide obvious health benefits as well as enhance the therapy itself.

Contact me for a free 30 minute chat about how counselling can support you and how we might work together.

MBACP Accredited

Member organisations


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

Counselling room is located on the ground floor.
