About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and professionally trained Integrative Relational Counsellor and Psychotherapist MBACP. I can offer help with a wide range of issues. I work with a diverse gender client group of young people, adults, older adults and special needs. I offer support with presentations of anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, bereavement, relationship issues, sexual difficulties, infidelity and separation. I have particular experience in working with eating disorders, addiction and fertility support IVF. I have worked for the NHS in primary care, Royal Borough of Kingston, Epsom Counselling Service and Nuffield Health. I am an eating disorder sponsor supporting people in early recovery from anorexia, bulimia, compulsive overeating. 

I work collaboratively with my clients to gain insight into repeated patterns of behaviour enabling self-awareness into past trauma. Moving away from unhealthy relationships and habits can help us to feel stronger, gain more self-esteem and therefore control. I am an integrative-relational counsellor which means I work with a range of different counselling and psycho-therapeutic theories. This approach is extremely effective in valuing the uniqueness of each client. My background in personal training and exercise rehabilitation allows me to work somatically. Realising the mind and body are both an important part of recovery. Somatic therapy is holistic and studies the relationship between the mind and body in regard to psychological past.

Practice description

If you are feeling overwhelmed, confused, anxious or depressed counselling allows an opportunity to talk about thoughts, feeling and concerns in a safe and non-judgmental space. Shame and guilt can play a huge part in stopping us from moving forward and feeling stuck or lost. The confidential and dependable environment of counselling 'talking to another' can enable us to explore problems that we may feel too embarrassed or ashamed to share with family and friends.

I have an accessible private practice with off road parking. I can offer a safe, warm and confidential environment. My therapy room is a separate and private space nestled at the end of my garden. I am surrounded by woods and common land which is ideal if the therapy needs to take a 'walking and talking' approach. I am also dog friendly, this can be especially useful for clients with special needs or who are working through severe anxiety or trauma.

I offer both short 6-12 weeks or long-term, face to face, online and telephone counselling.  Counselling sessions are 60 mins long.

I am currently affiliated with Emmaus Counselling Service in Guildford where I see clients on a Wednesday.
