About me and my therapy practice

Accredited member of BACP.

Through exploring your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential relationship counselling provides the opportunity to look at and reassess aspects of your life.  I aim to give compassionate support and perhaps offer new ideas to help you in your current circumstances to find the best way through.

My approach is primarily person-centred and humanistic: I will listen and reflect non-judgmentally, with acceptance and understanding, allowing you the space to explore what you think and feel.   Sometimes I incorporate methods from theoretical models such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) if I think this will be helpful to you.

I work with individuals of any age over 16 years and charge £50 per hour-long session. Some concessions are available for students and people on low incomes.

There are no upper or lower limits to the number of sessions, although a counselling relationship benefits from having time to develop. You may find that just a few sessions are enough to make a difference. Like most counsellors, I find that one session per week is practical and gives time for reflection before we next meet while also providing continuity.

I work from a dedicated room in my home which is close to Guildford railway station and Surrey University.
