About me

I have been providing a professional counselling service for over twenty years, and having had a rich experience of life and the challenges it can bring to bear on mental health, I have some insight as to what many of us go through.

I believe that counselling is like any other good relationship it needs to be built on trust and respect without fear of challenge. I will try my hardest to help you navigate the relationships, challenges and trauma that life has given you. The complexities of your life are unique to you and together we can find the answers and unearth what is right for you, helping you to learn to work through, and ultimately resolve what is causing you pain or making your life difficult.

I have counselled many hundreds of individuals and couples, providing a safe space to talk and work through the emotional issues and health problems life can present.

Alongside my private practice I have been running Surrey’s biggest independent mental health charity since the end of the 90's, and have amassed a great deal of experience in helping adults who have mental health problems.          

I aim to work with a small number of people providing them with honesty, where appropriate - challenge, alongside support and empathy.

“Now you have read all this you are hopefully one step closer to seeking the help you need, if
you have any questions prior to making an appointment please feel free to call or email me.
Otherwise, I would be happy to book a preliminary session for you to discover if this is the right course of action for you"

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
