About me

Surrey/Berkshire Counselling
There are various factors that contribute to the way we think, feel, and behave. Taken together they can produce symptoms of sadness, depression, anxiety, fear, stress, helplessness, hopelessness, anger, or frustration. Counselling can provide the support that you need.

I believe that healing comes through relationships. Working together we will craft a therapy that is informed by both my awareness and experience of ideas and practices from a wide range of different therapeutic approaches and your life experiences, abilities and personal resources. This framework creates an atmosphere of discovery and a positive approach to therapy that will help to reduce symptoms, open up choices and provide new possibilities for you.

There is no charge for the initial session, I believe it is important that you feel we are a good fit before we begin therapy. In that initial meeting I will share with you how I work and what to expect in counselling, we will discuss a general idea of what you are experiencing and how we will work together. If that feels right for you we will then contract for 6 sessions. After the 6 sessions we will do a review and plan together for the next 6 sessions or begin to work toward an ending.

Mindfulness
Mindfulness is based on scientific principles that teach you how to move from doing mode into being mode. This allows you to be fully engaged with the present and not become caught in thoughts of the past or the future. In being mode your brain and body can rest and repair. Mindfulness is a wonderful way to learn how to relax. It can also help with many physical and emotional disorders. There is evidence that mindfulness can assist with:

• Reduced stress, anxiety, and depression
• Pain reduction
• Better quality sleep
• Improved health and well being
• Enhanced resilience, creativity, and memory
• Improved concentration, clarity, and focus
• Greater work satisfaction
• Reduced work absence
• Improved work-life balance
• Improved relationships and communication
• Greater confidence and self-esteem

Mindfulness is offered in 1-1 sessions or 8 week courses.

Qualifications
I emigrated from the United States with my family in 2009. I earned my Diploma of Higher Education in Theology and Counselling from The London School of Theology and my Post Qualification Certificate in Cognitive Behavioral Skills from the Grove, in London. I received a Post Graduate Certificate of Completion in Somatic Trauma Therapy from Trauma expert Babette Rothschild. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I am an accredited Mindfulness Teacher, Mindfulness Now. Before Counselling I had a twenty-year career in Business, worked in Ministry, and as a Life Coach.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
