About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and practical Counsellor. I offer a friendly, calm place where you can explore what is not going well in your life, begin to see things in a different way and open up new options.

We will identify what you are looking for and help you understand more about who you are and why you do what you do. Knowing this enables you to manage emotions and relationships in a healthier way. Being more certain of your priorities will make it easier to make changes.

You will have time and my complete attention to talk and be heard. Many problems are too difficult to resolve alone and often it is easier to speak to someone not directly involved.

I am an Integrative therapist; I draw on different Counselling approaches, whatever will help you manage your life in a way that works for you.

I see couples and individuals privately. My experience includes working with communication problems, addictions, depression, anxiety, sadness, loss, anger, abuse, lack of confidence or self-esteem, relationship, confusion, family and societal issues. I am a Counsellor and Assessor at Catalyst, a Guildford based drug, alcohol and well-being charity and have also counselled at YMCA in Guildford.

In individual Counselling I focus on your personal meaning. Often patterns of thinking and behaviour become established and reoccur in unhelpful ways. Being aware of these enables you to respond differently.

Couples Counselling looks to strengthen your relationship whether you are having difficulties currently or are seeking ways to deepen your connection. Sometimes Counselling can also help couples to part more easily. I need both partners to contact me directly so that I know I have permission to get in touch with both.

It is vital that the Counselling relationship will work for you, that you feel comfortable and able to trust me. I offer initial appointments at a reduced rate of £30 for individuals, £35 for couples so you can check this out.
