About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative therapist with experience working privately and within the NHS supporting adults and younger people.

Talking therapies give people the space and time to explore issues that they experience daily and help them in achieving a goal whatever it may be. I have worked with people to;

* Help them feel more relaxed

* Increase their confidence

* Release themselves from stress

* Address causes of anxiety

* Overcome a fear

* Take control of a habit or addiction (such as over-eating or smoking)

* Feel more motivated to achieve their goals

* Look on life with more positivity

* Improve performance in sporting activities

Each problem a person experiences is unique so please get in touch and let's talk about how we could work together.

In addition to having my own practice I work within the NHS and for the West Surrey and North East Hampshire Youth Counselling Service, part of the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) meaning I am fully DBS certified. I also work at The Eaves Counselling and Psychology Services in Farnham.

I am passionate about helping people explore the problems they experience in their lives. With me, we work together so get in touch and let's talk more!

Practice description

I offer appointments out of three different sites, two in Farnham and one in Aldershot. I also offer appointments via the online platforms of Skype and Zoom as well as over the phone.

My first session

Initial appointments vary slightly depending on if I'll be working with you or your child. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, talk about how we could work together and for you to ask any questions.

If we are working together directly, we would have half an hour where I would ask you what has brought you here, what you hope to achieve and outline how I work and how we could work together. If I would be working with your child, we would spend some time with all of us together getting to know each other and asking questions before you would leave and let me and your child talk one-to-one. You would then come back in for the last few minutes and we would discuss the next steps. 

Most appointments will last up to 50 minutes however the initial session will be 30 to act as a relaxed way for us to get acquainted.
