About me

I am an experienced UKCP Registered Integrative Psychotherapist and have been providing a comprehensive Psychotherapy/Counselling Service at the Hinchley Wood Practice since 1999. The Hinchley Wood Practice is right next to the train station in Hinchley Wood with ample private parking for clients. The clinic is 5 minutes from the A3 and is close to Esher, Surbiton, Kingston and Wimbledon. Hinchley Wood is 19 minutes from Clapham Junction by train and less than half an hour from Waterloo.

My approach to therapy is an Integrative/Relational one. I draw upon a range of different theories to support my work. My aim is to facilitate a caring, safe and enriching therapeutic relationship in which clients can explore their difficulties and help serve as a basis for future healthy relationships.

I have experience in dealing with a wide variety of issues such as the pain of relationship break up/loss; dealing with unsatisfactory relationships and helping those who have difficulty forming meaningful relationships with others. I have worked extensively with clients who have experienced difficult childhoods and with those suffering from anxiety, depression and low self esteem. I also have specialised experience in dealing with clients who have a gambling addiction.

I am a Relate Certified Counsellor. I also worked for Gamcare for several years, the leading National charity helping those affected by a gambling problem.

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.
