About me


We all have anxiety. It’s a natural and normal part of being human and it’s essential for our survival. But sometimes our anxiety isn’t helpful and we can feel stuck in overthinking, overwhelm and trapped in a cycle of panic and fear. 

You are not alone. Most of us experience this type of anxiety at one time or another. Sometimes we might know why we are feeling like this because of something specific that’s happened. Sometimes we might have a more generalised feeling of dread and we can’t quite put our finger on why. 

I am here to help. I specialise in helping you cope with anxiety, stress and overwhelm

Much of the anxiety we experience is an echo of the past that we replay in our mind. By plugging into the present moment we can free ourselves from this cycle by becoming more ok with what’s actually here rather than fearing what we expect to be here. 

I help you make more sense of how you experience the world and your place in it; your relationships with key people in your life; your beliefs about yourself and others.  We uncover the unconscious patterns that hold you back so you can make more conscious choices for yourself.

I help you become more comfortable with the uncomfortable

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

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.

About Me
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and Senior Practitioner in Coaching in Camberley and online, specialising in existential psychotherapy and mindfulness. I have over 10 years’ experience as a counsellor and nearly 30 years’ experience in mindfulness practice. With a compassionate, non-judgmental approach, I provide a safe and supportive space for you to explore your inner world, process emotions, and develop practical tools for personal growth.

Mindfulness as a Foundation
Mindfulness is at the heart of my practice. I believe that by nurturing present-moment awareness and cultivating a non-reactive, compassionate mindset, you can find greater clarity, balance, and purpose in your life. Through mindfulness-based techniques, I guide you in developing skills to navigate challenges, manage stress, and enhance overall well-being.

MBACP Accredited

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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).

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.
