About me and my therapy practice

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, with 20 years of experience of working within the NHS, as a nurse, midwife and health visitor. I have cared and supported individuals who have struggled with anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, trauma and emotional difficulties. In addition, I have worked at The Priory Hospital as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor and presently work at a GP surgery as well as in private practice. I am aware that we are richly diverse human beings; which incorporates our culture, religion, ethnicity, sexuality and unique experiences, that needs to be sensitively considered.

I understand that life presents us with debilitating challenges. This could be in response to a specific event, present ongoing existential anxieties or in response to long-term, complex struggles that you have been trying to manage alone. My approach is to listen and truly understand your difficulties and to collaboratively work together with you. I believe that a therapeutic relationship, based on trust, plays a fundamental role within the healing process. I have been told that I am warm, empathic and approachable. My aim is to provide a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space; where you not only feel able to safely explore how you feel, but are gently supported to gain a greater understanding of yourself and obtain a renewed clarity. Together, we will identify your goals and your own powerful resources, thereby facilitating you to move forwards, in a more positive direction.

My qualifications include:

MA Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (Roehampton University)

BSc (Hons) (First) Midwifery (St Bartholomew School of Nursing and Midwifery, London)

PGDip Primary Care Nursing – Specialist Practitioner Qualification (Kings College London)

RAN Registered Adult Nurse

The CFT Approach to Postnatal Depression -The Compassionate Mind Foundation.

An Introduction to Theory & Practice of CFT –The Compassionate Mind Foundation.

Practice description

My MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy incorporated training in CBT, the Humanistic approach and the Psychodynamic philosophy. I am also informed by compassion focused therapy (CFT) and the significance of utilising ‘mindfulness’ and psychoeducation. With the firm foundation of the therapeutic relationship, I work relationally and am able to adapt my approach in accordance to an individual’s goals, needs and preferences.

I work with adults aged 16 years and over. I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, trauma, shame and self-criticism, low self-esteem and emotional abuse. I am also interested in the dynamics of relationships and working with the challenges that emerge, with others and ourselves. Furthermore, acknowledging that some of these patterns may have arisen from earlier experiences.

I also have a specialist interest and experience in women’s health; incorporating pre and post pregnancy and those who are struggling with postnatal depression. Furthermore, the peri-menopause and menopause which can be physically and emotionally immense and disabling.

Further experience incorporates bereavement; an enormous life transition, which requires care, nurturing and sensitive management.

As a member of the BACP (MBACP), I adhere to their ethical framework.

My first session

I understand that it can feel daunting and overwhelming embarking on your therapeutic journey. It is so important that you are comfortable and feel that you have chosen the right therapist for you and your individual needs. Therefore, before embarking on the process, I offer an initial telephone call lasting approximately 15 minutes. This enables you to briefly discuss what is bringing you to therapy, to ask any questions you may have and to give you a feel of my therapeutic approach.

If you decide you would like us to work together, an initial assessment session would be arranged, which would last for approximately 60 minutes. This would enable us to obtain an understanding of your difficulties in greater depth and collaboratively establish a plan catered towards your needs and future goals. All further session will last for 50 minutes, which are normally and ideally on a weekly basis. I offer therapy sessions face-to-face in the centre of Guildford. Furthermore, I see clients online via Zoom, in conjunction with offering walk and talk therapy within the beautiful surrey hills.

The initial assessment session (approximately 60 minutes) is charged at £80. Further weekly sessions (50 minutes) are charged at £70.
