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 have experience of working with Counselling and Cancer organisations and the  NHS. I offer weekly sessions for both short and open-ended periods in a comfortable and confidential environment. I am a supervisor and facilitate training workshops for counsellors.

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.

About me and my therapy practice

I am currently undertaking level 6 OCN supervision training and can offer reduced rate sessions for qualified or trainee therapists. My work is predominantly from a psychodynamic perspective. I very much value what supervision brings, to provide a space to develop as a therapist, to be accountable for our work and to gain support and encouragement in the emotionally demanding role that we undertake. Having experience of working in a variety of organisations, I can appreciate the challenges different contexts bring, as well as setting up and running a private practice.

I qualified in 2011 as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist Counsellor MA after training at wpf therapy London. I have 7 years post qualification experience and currently work as a supervisor for Croydon Counselling Foundation, as a therapist at the The South East Cancer Help Centre and Breast Cancer Care, along side a private practice. I am accredited with the BACP and am a registered general nurse.

I am excited to be embarking on this new training to extend my skills and scope of work and  look forward to hearing from you if you would be interested in working with me.
