About me and my therapy practice

I work with many kinds of people who want to feel differently and are searching for how to make these changes happen.

Sadness, anxiety, depression, anger, confusion or uncertainty are difficult emotions to manage alone. How we see ourselves and what we believe about ourselves also impact enormously on how we live.

Learning to use and manage emotions, building confidence and self-esteem can bring about huge changes for you.

I believe that talking to someone outside your usual circle really does help. In our sessions you will be able to talk freely and know you will be heard with respect and without judgement.

We are all very individual and I work particularly with you as the person you are so you can begin to make sense of your situation and find your own way forward.

I see couples and individuals privately and 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 Couples Counselling the relationship between the two of you, is my client. We will look at ways to strengthen and nurture that. We will explore what you and your partner are putting into the relationship, where that might be coming from and the responsibility you both carry for how this plays out. Due to data protection legislation, I need both partners to contact me directly so that I know I have permission to get in touch.

Individual Counselling could involve examining situations or thoughts which are emotionally triggering for you. Looking back to see patterns, can also bring new and useful perspectives to today's issues as can identifying different approaches. Please see my website for more details.

Please note: if you are looking to explore a relationship with your partner, I strongly recommend you come along as a couple.

Initial appointments are at reduced price £30 (individuals) and £35 (couples) so you can check out how sessions feel.
