I am able to offer face to face sessions once more. There will always be the option for you to work in the best way that suits you and your lifestyle.
I believe everyone can benefit from therapy - you don’t have to be in crisis.
About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working 1-1 with young people and adults.
I have worked in a clinical hospital setting and also in private practice. During lockdown and the beginning of the pandemic I gave telephone support to medical staff working on frontline. I also support GPs .
I work with relationship issues, feelings of being misunderstood, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger and stress and trauma. I also understand and have a sensitivity to the needs of clients who portray highly sensitive person (HSP) traits when life can be regularly overwhelming/experience noise sensitivity/visual overload/overstimulation and often feel exhausted/different for no obvious reason. Sensitive people gain from the influence of a good environment and deep self understanding. It can be a positive trait once understood.
In addition, I have quality experience of working with clients and families who have been diagnosed with cancer and other life changing illnesses. In addition I am highly trained in bereavement work (this covers miscarriages and associated loss with abortions too) and also with trauma having been a victim support counsellor trained in assault on both male and females.
I currently support clients who have difficulties with dyslexia, cognitive dyspraxia, ADHD, autism and aspergers.
Experienced in the corporate sector and also with families in a music setting.
I work 1-1 in private practice in a quiet peaceful confidential setting in Godalming, Surrey. I work Weekdays and am open for sessions from 7.30 am - 9.30 pm.
My first session
Prior to us talking, I will have given you some forms relating to our counselling session. The first session is often a good time to explore what is going on for you and what has brought you to counselling. Talking to a trained listener can help you process what could be worrying you. I have used therapy myself in the past and in training and also have a family so am empathetic to the process and to what life can throw at us.
