About me and my therapy practice

Looking to make a real change? I offer a friendly, welcoming and safe environment in which to explore your concerns and identify their root causes, evolve your sense of self-worth and improve your strengths. I can help you view your life through a different lens and strengthen your ability to develop resilience when dealing with difficult or challenging circumstances. 

Specialist areas include: Anger, anxiety (inc OCD), bereavement, depression, LGBT+ issues, loneliness, low self-esteem, relationship problems and work-related concerns - including stress, redundancy and career changes. I also specialise in counselling the elderly and can provide sessions in central Farnham or locally in the home or residential home of the client. 

Experience: I have many years of counselling experience, gained through private practice and voluntary counselling at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Surrey and Bridge Counselling Services in Essex. In addition to my private counselling practice, I work as a Specialist Mentor providing support to university students with a broad spectrum of mental health issues. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (RMBACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I am also accredited to use the JCA Emotional Intelligence Profile (EIP) development tool.

Approach: I am an integrative therapist which means I can draw upon a range of therapies (including person-centred, psychodynamic and CBT) and tailor them to meet your individual needs. I can provide short-term, long-term and time-limited therapy. 

Emotional Intelligence Development: As an alternative or addition to counselling, you might want to explore emotional intelligence development. Please see my website at www.sentiencecounselling.co.uk for more detailed information about this service.
