About me

I am a psychotherapist offering In-Person therapy in the Surrey area and also offer online therapy.

I trained as a therapist later in life after a previous career working with vulnerable young people and adults of all ages. I hope that this, coupled with my further training and therapeutic experience means I can offer something useful to you.

Finding the right help

It can be rather daunting to find the right therapist with the issues that you present with.

If you have come this far to look at my profile it shows me that you are ready to deal with your issue head-on.

What I offer is to facilitate the space for you to explore what is concerning you. My key strengths are being non-judgmental, thinking out of the box and building confidence in my clients.

I work with a multitude of issues and the most important part of this is to work in an alliance of the needs of you the client.

How I can help

I have 19 years experience of supporting people through difficulties in their life and feel it is a great privilege to be in this position.

Being a psychotherapist means I am able to offer a range of therapeutic techniques and psychological theories as appropriate to therapy.

I have worked with a range of mental health issues including:

  • anxiety
  • OCD
  • depression
  • loss & bereavement
  • relationship problems
  • work-related stress
  • end of life issues
  • life changes
  • problematic anger
  • self-confidence
  • self-esteem
  • trauma

I have learned that every person's experience is unique - for this reason, I work by listening to your needs and offering a form of therapy that will suit you.

Making contact

If you would like to make an appointment, then simply e-mail me by using the link on this page or telephone me on the above number. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The first meeting is a chance to meet and explore your situation. This will also give you a better idea of what support is available and how it can be adapted to suit your needs. After that meeting, I like clients to then take some time to decide if they feel I am the best solution for them. I think it is incredibly important to get your support right which means you feel that I am the right person to provide that for you.

If we agree to continue, I will usually suggest a fixed number of meetings at first (normally between 6 and 12 ), which we can extend or reduce later as we conduct regular assessments together during the therapy.

Skype and Telephone Counselling

In this day and age, it can sometimes be difficult to fit in a face to face appointment, in those instances, I can offer Skype and telephone counselling which can be just as powerful as face to face.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in stress management coupled with a higher diploma in integrative counselling and a diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy and am an advocate of mindful practice in all the work and approaches I use.

I have 19 years experience of supporting people through difficulties in their life and feel it is a great privilege to be in this position.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
