About me and my therapy practice

**Update 21st July**

Please note I currently have a full practice and I am not taking on new clients.

**Counselling students: Please contact me if you are looking to start counselling for your September course. You are embarking on an amazing journey of self-discovery which I would love to accompany you on.**


As an individual or couple.....you are here as an aspect of your life is causing you pain and you are currently doing research to find ways to relieve your pain. And, with the best will in the world, you've been unable to solve your problem. That is where I come in.


Why choose me? We'll work together on the issue you bring whether this is relationship, work, addiction, loss, bereavement, 'self' or a.n.other.

By working together we'll improve your knowledge and your experience so you can again feel joy, desire, happiness, laughter etc. and a vitality for life. 

My hope is for you to have eureka and 'a-ha' moments as you gain a greater understanding of yourself and the relationships you create around you.

Parting question.....what would be the ultimate cost to you of taking no action today?

Practice description

I work from a first floor office in a Business Centre off the Portsmouth Road in Ripley.

Access is via a communal door and then straight up a flight of stairs (no lift).  There is no reception / waiting room and there is no contact with anyone else so confidentiality is ensured.

My office has an assigned parking space for convenient parking.

My first session

It is always a pleasure to meet new client(s) in an initial sesssion and put a face to a name(s).  

Individual counselling:-  I briefly go through confidentiality and then I lead with a few questions which lets me know a bit about yourself and what brings you to counselling.  This is an opportunity for you to ask me any questions and for us to discuss how we would work together moving forward.   This initial session is complimentary for individuals. 

Couple (or two) counselling:-  You will have already emailed me back your pre-assessment forms so this initial session is held in the here-and-now looking at what you both want from your relationship and discussing how we will help you get there.  This initial session is £30 due to pre-assessment work.

About me and my therapy practice

You are here as there is an element of your life which is not currently working for you whether as an individual or a couple.

The now:- You were raised in a social setting and made adjustments to fit that setting. Today your values and beliefs are causing conflict in other relationships / social settings, i.e. home, work, friendships, family, etc. You then try to make adjustments to live authentically yet struggle so find ways to escape, i.e. avoidance, addiction, self-criticism, negative thoughts, de-valuing of yourself, etc. Most of what you are experiencing now (a few exceptions being birth and medical conditions) has come from being IN relationship.

The past:- Children need to be liked and loved and so you would have moulded yourself to fit relationships (all in an unconscious way of course). It is these adaptions which can cause problems as you enter different social environments, i.e. beliefs such as 'I'm unlovable', 'no-one likes me' or a fear of rejection/abandonment. This causes symptoms such as a need to control, perfectionism, trust issues, addiction, low self-esteem, self-hatred, etc.

How therapy works:- Life happens yet it is about how you handle life.  Counselling offers a way for us to work together to find ways for you to live more authentically without internal conflict. By looking at life patterns and your relationships (past and present) we find ways for you to live more harmoniously within yourself (and your relationships).

Does this sound like the therapy you are after? Please contact me. I firmly believe that if you want different, you have to do different, which is achievable through our work together.

Students:- Please contact me if your course enables online therapy only (face to face offered in Ripley, Surrey, see www.harmoniouscounselling.com ). I am passionate about working with students and welcome being alongside you in your journey.

Practice description

Working online from my home in Surrey, I believe counselling and psychotherapy ought to be available to all.  During the Covid pandemic I enjoyed working online and took an extra OU course to work safely and ethically online.  Relationship Counselling Online was born as I want to continue to work with diversity online as well as working face to face back in my practice in Ripley.

I work online with clients locally in Surrey and Sussex and further afield in the UK (Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland).  I also work with clients in other countries and have experience of working with expats living abroad.  

Please visit www.relationshipcounsellingonline.com for more details.

My first session

Individual Sessions:  In your complimentary assessment I will go through a two page document.   This gives me details about your current life and touches on your past and the reasons why you are seeking therapy.  This is offered free of charge for individuals.

Couple (or two) sessions:  You would have completed and returned your pre-assessment forms and your session will be conducted in the here and now bringing you together with the aims of your sessions.  This initial session is offered at the reduced cost of £30 (due to pre-assessment work).
