About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and I work from a psychodynamic perspective. I am located in Surbiton and Guildford.

You may be feeling low, depressed, anxious, angry or experience bereavement or grief. This can feel overwhelming and you might need some support in figuring out what to do as sharing these feelings with friends and family can feel uncomfortable. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness or failure as counselling can provide a valuable opportunity to look at what's going on for you and help you evaluate how you can best deal with the situation. Talking to a counsellor is unlike talking to friends or family as it allows you a safe, confidential space where you can feel heard and supported without judgement.

I believe our early relationships with our parents/carers has an impact on our development, and that in some ways, we try to re-create "our family" in the choices of partners and in our interactions both in social and work situations. By becoming more self-aware we can establish healthier boundaries and feel empowered in our life choices.  I work relationally and believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is key to change and that each client is a unique individual with capacity for growth and change.

I have extensive experience of working with trauma, particularly rape and childhood sexual abuse. Prior to qualifying as a psychotherapist/counsellor I worked in Special Needs Education and have a good understanding of neuro diversity, particularly ASD.
