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.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
