About me and my therapy practice
I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working in Ashtead and Guildford.
I understand that when life becomes challenging or overwhelming it may be difficult to know where to turn for help. By looking for a counsellor you have taken the first step to finding professional support to explore your feelings and the issues that are troubling you. Talking to a counsellor is unlike talking to friends or family as it allows you a safe, confidential space to be listened to without judgement. It can provide you with the opportunity to find new perspectives and choices that enable the possibility of lasting change in your life.
Whatever the therapeutic approach the relationship between client and counsellor is key to the effectiveness of the work. I truly believe in the positive effects that counselling can achieve and work collaboratively with you in order to build the trust essential for the therapeutic relationship to develop and grow.
I have particular experience in loss and bereavement. This includes working with disenfranchised grief, a loss not openly acknowledged by family, friends or society, which may lead to feelings of isolation and loneliness. You may have suffered the loss of an unrecognised or secret relationship, or a beloved pet. During the pandemic you may not have been able to access the more usual support available, leaving you with feelings that the loss of your loved one has not been fully recognised or understood.
My first session
I offer a free 20 minute telephone or online consultation for an initial discussion. This gives you the opportunity to see how it may be for us to work together. To book an appointment, please telephone or email me. Further information about my practice can be found on my website.
