I am a Humanistic Relational counsellor /psychotherapist offering face to face sessions (permitting absence of Covid 19 symptoms) in Guildford during the day , for both adults and children over 5 years.
About me and my therapy practice
Following a career of caring for children and working closely with their families I have built on that foundation and trained to become a Humanistic counsellor with a particular interest in relationships . I use the insight from Existential ,Psychoanalytic , Attachment and Transactional Analysis in my Relational approach. Fostering a good therapeutic relationship is central to my practice.
I believe our life experience affects our perceptions and way of being; the relationships we have with ourselves, others and our environment. I encourage my adult clients to explore what is troubling them and find their own inner resources by offering a safe space where they will be listened to , free of any judgement or direction by me.
Also ,I have been trained by Place2Be a leading children’s metal health charity to work with children (5+) in an age appropriate way, sometimes using play therapy or other creative materials to help them make sense of what’s troubling them and finding ways to cope.
In a voluntary capacity I hold a current Enhanced DBS Certificate for both vulnerable adults and children.
Please call me for a short informal chat or to arrange an initial session.
I offer short and long term therapy with sessions of 50 minutes held weekly from a quiet room in Guildford. These are normally held at the same time and day of the week to ensure continuity.
