About me and my therapy practice

After first qualifying in 1990 (at the University of Reading), I have added to my initial training over the years.  Therefore, I am able to provide a therapeutic approach which is personal to each of my clients and addresses their individual needs.

I work with adults, children and teenagers, as well as couples and families.

Much of my working life has been spent in the NHS and I have a wealth of experience to inform and enhance my work.

I'm friendly and approachable, whilst working to the highest professional standards in all of the work I do.

Unfortunately, there is no legislation regarding counsellors and psychotherapists and worryingly, anybody can call themselves a counsellor or a psychotherapist.  Trainings vary and it can be daunting trying to find the right therapist for you.  I offer a free 20 minute online appointment initially so that you can meet me in person and confirm that I'm right for you.

Please phone or email me in the first instance and we can take it from there.  I'm based in Farnham town centre, within easy reach of Guildford, Alton, Fleet, Hook and Camberley. There are a number of car parks just a few minutes walk away from my consulting room.  However, due to the pandemic, I am currently working online, via Zoom or Skype.

My first session

The first session is essentially information gathering and sharing.  There is absolutely no obligation to book any further appointments after this if you feel that you don't want to continue.

About me and my therapy practice

Whilst my initial training (30 years ago!) was psychodynamic, I have regularly added to this skill base over the years.  I have successfully supervised many trainee and qualified counsellors, whose training/background varied from humanistic/person-centred to integrative and psychodynamic.

I always offer potential supervisees a free initial meeting - usually online via Zoom or Skype.  There is absolutely no obligation to continue working together if we don't feel we would be a 'good fit'.

Practice description

I'd describe myself now as integrative.  My many years of experience, further training and CPD allow me to understand and work with a number of therapeutic approaches.

I believe that supervisors should take something of a holistic approach in terms of their supervisees.  How effective we are with our clients can often be influenced by our environment and degree of general wellbeing.

My first session

As there is no charge for an initial meeting, please do take the plunge and get in touch and we can take it from there!
