About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults in the Surrey area. Alongside my private practice I also work for a Cancer Support Centre and the NHS. I offer weekly sessions for both short and open-ended periods in a comfortable and confidential environment. I facilitate workshops for counsellors on working with the impact of cancer and mortality.

People choose to have therapy often because they are experiencing difficulties in their lives. Sometimes people can feel anxious or depressed, or may be struggling with other life events such as bereavement, divorce, health issues or redundancy. Others may be experiencing underlying feelings of dissatisfaction or be seeking to understand themselves better.

Therapy is a time set aside to look at the issues concerning you. This will include talking about life events, feelings, relationships, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour. Together we can explore your issues and identify what might be helpful to you, either to resolve your difficulties or find ways of coping. Talking about these things may take time, courage and commitment but invariably leads to increased self-awareness and the ability to take greater control of your life.

If you feel you would like to explore the possibility of therapy with me please contact me and we can arrange to meet. An initial consultation is an opportunity for us to talk together about what might be helpful for you. On going sessions are weekly and are for 50 minutes.
