About me and my therapy practice

I'm a fully qualified counsellor, having worked within the NHS and private practice.  I can help you with anxiety, depression, family and relationship issues, feelings of low self esteem or sadness.  You can get support and you don’t need to experience this alone.  I will endeavour to make sense of your feelings, behaviours, and difficulties in a warm, confidential therapeutic space.  This will help to build your confidence so that you can move forwards and rediscover your sense of enjoyment.

Exploring your emotions and thoughts will increase your self-awareness. Understanding what is causing pain and difficulty can help you to identify patterns, so that gradually you will have new perspectives and can make positive choices, enabling you to lead a happier more fulfilling life.

My background working as part of an NHS counselling team has provided me with experience in helping people with a broad range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, low self esteem, sexual orientation, divorce, loss, post-natal depression, and trauma. I developed an interest in psychotherapy during my time working as a volunteer counsellor for Childline, which has enabled me to help younger people and recognise their current challenges.

Practice description

My Practice is client centred, we will focus on your agenda and progress at your pace. My experience working in private practice, and with the NHS means that I’m able to support individuals from a diverse range of ethnicities, ages, and cultural backgrounds. I have worked with adults and young people from the age of sixteen.

I trained as a person-centred counsellor, and use this approach tailored to your individual needs. I have expertise in short- and long-term counselling. I offer online and in person counselling.

The Practice is next to Hinchley Wood train station which provides private parking. It is easily accessible from the A3 and close to bus routes.

My first session

I offer a free initial telephone conversation. Our sessions will last for fifty minutes, at a fixed regular time in a confidential setting. Our first session is an opportunity for you to tell me what brings you to counselling, and for me to listen. It will focus on what you’re hoping to get from therapy, and for us to outline how we might go about that process.

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Child related issues, Cultural issues, Depression, Eating disorders, Health related issues, Identity issues, Infertility, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues
