About me

We are all human beings doing our best to navigating our individual worlds as best we can. Life may not be going according to our preconceived plan. This may cause stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, compulsions, addictions, repetitive relationship patterns all making life just too overwhelming to manage. Thoughts that no-one really understands the place you find yourself in. Struggling to communicate feelings, as it may not be easy to share with others, especially if there’s the fear of being judged, appearing vulnerable or burdening others with our worries and that’s why a lot of people turn to counselling.

Deciding to seek help in a counsellor can be a difficult and daunting one, yet it’s important to choose someone you feel comfortable with and able to trust.

My style is casual and conversational. I provide a warm, non-judgmental, and comfortable atmosphere, in which you can feel safe examining and talking about all aspects of yourself and your life. Together, we will work to identify your unique goals and the best path for you to achieve those goals.

I am compassionate to your difficulties offering you a non-judgemental space, where there’s confidentiality and where there’s a therapeutic relationship which means being truly listened to. My primary goal in our therapeutic relationship is to empower you to find your own way through challenging times, as I believe you are the expert of you.

I offer a place to explore these difficult times, whether that’s looking at underlying issues contributing to behaviours or finding ways to cope and move forward. It maybe to explore strategies to cope with overwhelming feelings going on for you. I offer a safe place of being heard and valued.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a qualified and experienced therapist. I am fully insured and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling which is complemented by a BA (Hons) Degree in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling.  Being an integrative counsellor means I combine various approaches to tailor my way of working to best support your individual needs.

I specialise working with individuals who may find themselves negotiating their way through anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, domestic abuse, self-harm.  Equally, I work with survivors of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), sexual trauma, sexual violence, and childhood sexual abuse. 

As a member of the BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Counselling Professions.  As such I attend continued professional development training on a regular basis.

· As well as my general counselling practice, I work with women who find themselves vulnerable to the Criminal Justice System at the Women’s Support Centre (WSC) in Woking.

Member organisations

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.

My practice takes place within a cabin surrounded by pea shingle. There is a lip to cross when accessing with a wheel chair.
