About me and my therapy practice
Are you feeling low, stressed or anxious? Navigating a transition in life? Or simply wanting to understand yourself better? I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in Surbiton and Tolworth. I offer a warm, non-judgmental and confidential space in which you can talk freely and openly about your life, worries and stresses.
It can be hard to take the decision to see a therapist when there are so many competing demands on our time and our resources. I believe that we should look after our mental health in the same way that we look after our physical health. Talking therapy can be an important tool in supporting this; helping you explore your feelings and difficulties so that you can gain some clarity, make positive changes and feel better.
I am trained in an integrative relational approach to psychotherapy which means my main focus is on developing a warm and therapeutic relationship with my clients. I have experience working in the NHS, in a GP surgery, and in a counselling agency. Alongside my private practice, I manage a counselling service for an autism charity and I have a particular interest in supporting people on the autism spectrum and their families.
Training and Qualifications
- MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Roehampton University)
Introduction to Counselling (Birkbeck, University of London)
I have also completed training courses on the subjects of: working with people on the autism spectrum; emotional eating; and bereavement and loss.
It is really important that you feel comfortable with your therapist. I offer a free, no-obligation initial half-hour telephone session so that you can decide whether I am the right therapist for you. During this session, you can tell me a little about yourself and what you hope to get from counselling. I can also answer any questions you may have.
