About me and my therapy practice

I decided to retrain as a counsellor after working for a number of years as a manager in local government. I particularly enjoyed the pastoral care aspects of my managerial role. I completed a BSc in Integrative Counselling at Roehampton University in 2006 and gained BACP Accredited status in 2008.

I usually work in central Guildford in a lovely old building which, unfortunately, does not have disabled access. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have been working entirely online or by phone, from home.  I am unable to see clients face to face inside at present, although I may be able to offer limited "walking counselling" sessions on request.

I work flexibly during the day and may be able to offer evening sessions. I offer 50 minute sessions, after an initial assessment session lasting an hour. I see clients for anything from one session to weekly sessions for several years.  I work only with adults and only on an individual basis. I do not work with couples.

I can offer a safe place for you to discuss your issues confidentially and for us to work through them together as we build a strong, trusting relationship between us. You should be aware that I cannot wave a magic wand to make you feel better and counselling may take some time and require some commitment.

I am particularly interested in offering personal therapy to counselling trainees, for whom I can reduce my fees if requested. I also have an interest in bereavement and completed additional training with Cruse in 2007.
