About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist / counsellor with over twenty years of experience within Private Practice, the NHS & The Criminal Justice System.  I work with individuals and couples for short or long term counselling and psychotherapy. I offer a professional, safe and confidential space in which you can explore and resolve many of life’s challenges and difficulties. Weekday and early evening sessions are available on-line, by phone or from my counselling room at Smithbrook Kilns in Cranleigh. I work with a range of presenting issues including relationship issues, stress and anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, trauma, abuse, life decisions and drug and alcohol dependency. Please contact me for further information on 07885 532993. I welcome inquiries from counselling students.

My first session

Please contact me and I will respond by phone or email.  I suggest an initial session to enable us to meet, gather information, confirm confidentiality, establish your current needs and for you to decide if working with me would be useful to you at this time.  If you wish to continue we can identify a mutually convenient session time.
