About me

I am a qualified and professionally trained person-centred, existential counsellor with particular experience of working with bereavement, loss and life limiting illness. My background in Acupuncture and complementary therapies has given me a holistic approach to wellbeing of the body and mind. I offer face to face counselling in Guildford and online via Zoom.

Seeking help and finding someone you feel comfortable with and trust can be a daunting and courageous first step. I offer a safe, non judgmental and confidential environment to give you the space, time and freedom to explore your thoughts, feelings and issues.

I will work collaboratively with you in building an empathic relationship to help you face difficulties, and facilitate the resources within you to gain new insights, and a greater awareness of your choices, enabling change and personal growth at a pace that is best for you.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and offer short and long term one-to-one counselling.

In addition to my work at The Practice, I'm a counsellor at a local hospice providing pre bereavement and bereavement counselling to family members.

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.

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.
