About me and my therapy practice

My main aim in life has and always will be to help people find peace and joy in their lives. This can be very difficult to source when life today is so challenging. Whether it is financial worries, loss of a loved one, disability, illness, family issues, bullying, work pressure, trauma, (amongst others) all can induce stress, depression and anxiety and social anxiety.

I have a special interest in working with clients who have experienced early life trauma and loss.

Besides a wealth of life experience, gained through my previous careers in business and charities, I have a degree in Integrative relationship counselling, which enables me to work in a way to suit each individual and their issues. This may be long or short term work.

I work from a delightful Georgian house in the centre of Guildford. The property is designated for therapists and offers comfortable rooms with a concierge present in the building. Guildford station is a short walk away and there are a wealth of car parks within easy reach.  

I practice Monday to Thursday with a last appointment at 5.30pm.

I also visit businesses by arrangement to offer therapy in the workplace.

I am a Christian but this does not influence my work.
