About me and my therapy practice

People are drawn to counselling for many different reasons. Life can often be challenging, and can leave you feeling alone and not knowing where you can go to be heard, understood or supported. This in turn can leave you feeling anxious, stressed, down, uncertain, afraid or unable to do what you want to do, and be who you want to be. Counselling and psychotherapy can help support you through these difficult times and changes in your life, for example through bereavement, loss of a relationship or health, family problems, stress, anxiety or depression.

I am trained and work as an integrative psychotherapist, which means that I put your needs first and foremost, whilst being able to draw on a number of different approaches, so that the counselling approach is tailored for you. In this sense my approach is person-centred, with the heart of my work being the therapeutic relationship, in order to enable positive changes and development.

​In my private practice I work with adults and young people with issues including depression, bereavement, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, self worth, self esteem, relationship issues, obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, trauma, gender and identity, grief and loss, personal growth and development.

I also work for the NHS as an honorary counselling volunteer with the Youth Counselling Service, part of Mindsight Surrey CAMHS, and I am an associate with NTAPS working with clients using short term trauma focused CBT.

I also worked for Cruse as a bereavement volunteer, where I worked with bereaved clients on both a one to one basis and facilitated group work.

About me and my therapy practice

"The first step to making change is deciding that you no longer want to be where you are".You have already taken that first step, and I offer a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space for you to think and talk about anything which may feel confusing, uncomfortable or painful.

As a fully qualified Counselling Professional, I aim to build a therapeutic relationship with you to help you to explore your feelings, thoughts and experiences to help you to make any changes that you feel you need in order to move forward.

I hold an Advanced Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and I am a registered member of BACP (MBACP) and an accredited registrant of the National Counselling Society (MNCS Accred).

​I work privately as a therapist, and have a wealth of valuable experience working with a diverse range of individuals and their issues including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, stress, self worth, self esteem, relationship issues, trauma, OCD, anger, gender and identity, grief and loss, personal growth and development. 

I am an associate with NTAPS working with clients who have experienced trauma using a short term, trauma focused CBT approach.

I also worked for the NHS as a counselling volunteer with the Youth Counselling Service (12 to 24 year olds), part of Mindsight Surrey CAMHS, and for Cruse as a bereavement volunteer, working with individuals and groups.

​My theoretical approach is integrative which means I draw on different theories which enables me to work with each person individually, using the best approach for you. The client, therapist relationship is key to this, to ensure that you feel safe to explore and share what you are thinking, feeling and your experiences. This will help you to make the changes that you need to, to enable you to move forward with your life in a way that you want it to.
