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.

About me

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

  1. 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.

Next Steps

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.
