For face-to-face appointments, I work out of The Eaves in Farnham on a Thursday and Friday morning between 9am - 1pm. In addition to that, I offer Zoom and telephone counselling.
About me and my therapy practice
It is completely understandable that taking that first step to seeing a counsellor can feel daunting, which is why my holding of your emotions starts from the second we speak. I am a Humanistic counsellor using mainly the Person-centred approach. This type of counselling means we work with what’s going on for you in the ‘here and now’ but not neglecting, nor dismissing, the fact that we are made up of our life’s past experiences.
My approach is one of compassion, empathy, acceptance and non-judgement. I have a warm, calm nature which allows my clients to be heard fully and openly. I strongly believe that you are the expert in your life, not me. I don’t offer solutions but rather I am the co-pilot in our therapeutic relationship, helping you to navigate your way through your thoughts and gently challenging you in a way that will give you a greater understanding of what is going on for you.
I do work with a number of presenting issues but my specialist interest is in grief and bereavement work. As well as my private practice, I work as a bereavement volunteer for a national bereavement charity, as a volunteer counsellor for a cancer charity and also run their bereavement group.
My first session
The relationship between client and counsellor is hugely important to the progression of the work together. For this reason, before starting your counselling, I offer a free 30 minute zoom or phone assessment. This gives you the chance to see if I'm the right counsellor for you, allows an opportunity to understand the process and helps with the decision on moving forward with counselling.
