I specialise in:
Self-esteem & Confidence issues
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.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
