About me

My practice is based in Dorking, Surrey

I  work with both adults and children

I am a warm, empathic counsellor who offers a safe supportive space to adults and children, where you can explore any worries or difficulties in total confidence. We all struggle at times and counselling offers you a chance to be listened to, to make sense of your feelings and understand different parts of yourself. I believe that the relationship between the counsellor and client is the most important part of therapy, and I create a non judgemental, caring environment where trust and mutual respect can be built working together side by side.

I work with children from 5+ using creative techniques such as sand play, drawings and symbols. Presenting issues I often see include anxiety,  bereavement, anger management, friendship issues, bullying, destructive behaviour at school, ADHD, autistic traits, relationship issues, low self esteem, depression and separation anxiety.

In my work with adults I work with many presenting issues, such as generalised anxiety disorder, low self esteem, anger management, bereavement, loneliness, trauma, depression, low self confidence, relationship issues and abuse.

People seek counselling for many different reasons:

  • Anxiety.
  • Depression
  • Feeling sad
  • Family issues
  • Abuse
  • Bereavement
  • Low Self esteem
  • Child related issues
  • Low self-confidence
  • Stress
  • Emotional abuse
  • Attachment disorder in children
  • Depress and anxiety in children
  • Anger Management
  • Trauma
  • Loneliness
  • Physical abuse

I can help. I have worked with hundred of people just like you. We all struggle at times, so please do get in touch.
