About me and my therapy practice

It is my aim to provide you with a calm, non-judgmental, confidential space, where I hope you will feel safe to talk through whatever issues you are currently facing.  If you feel anxious or overwhelmed by issues you are currently dealing with and would like to talk this through with someone.   I will work alongside you, to provide support, as you leave no stone unturned in exploring your feelings/emotions and increase your self-awareness.   

I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor & Life Coach and I work 1-2-1 with individual adult clients of any age from 17+.   

I will support you as you leave no stone unturned exploring how you feel, increasing your self-awareness and gaining focus.   Depending on whether on whether you are having Counselling or Life Coaching sessions - I work with a number of therapeutic/coaching approaches which enables me to tailor sessions to suit the needs of each individual client and helps build our working relationship.   I may sometimes introduce creative techniques alongside my talking therapies, all of which would only be introduced with the clients full agreement and only where it is considered to be of therapeutic/coaching benefit.  

Practice description

My therapy room is in West Byfleet in Surrey, but due to the current pandemic I am currently providing online or telephone therapy, which I have found to be an effective way of maintaining a connection with my clients. 
Prior to setting up my private practice I had previously gained experience working as a counsellor in a community counselling service. I have also worked in a debt counselling service, provided student counselling at a local college and as a therapist at a private psychiatric hospital. In previous work roles as a manager, I have gained a wealth of experience in training and developing staff, as I helped to guide, coach and motivate them to move forward with their careers and provided emotional support when needed. I find I can draw on this experience when when clients need support with issues such as work stress, workplace bullying, low confidence and career building for example.  

My first session

I provide a free 15 min initial discussion just to to provide us a chance to meet via telephone/video-call to decide if you like the way I work.  Also to see if we have mutual availability to consider us progressing to further therapy sessions, or we could discuss other options/referrals.
