Welcome to my website.
I'm an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor with a humanistic background, and I run a private practice in Guildford which is in close proximity to Woking and Godalming. I've been managing and providing in-house counselling services for degree students at a local academy in Guildford. I'm an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP Accred) which means that I've been assessed as a "competent, ethical and independent practitioner".
My other memberships include CIPCA (Counsellors in Primary Care), as well as the NCFED (National Centre for Eating Disorders). I am committed to providing therapy in a safe and non-judgemental environment.
Previous experience includes counselling provision for the NHS at a GP surgery in Surrey, corporate counselling, working as part of the counselling team at the Royal Holloway University, and working as an in-house counsellor for the YMCA. I have several years experience of working with a wide variety of issues such as abuse, addictions, anxiety, eating disorders, depression, loss, relationships, self-esteem, self harm, and trauma to name a few. With in depth knowledge about the causes and effects of both trauma and developmental trauma, specific training and experience in issues of attachment and loss, I'm able to work with clients at a deeper level, and help them to explore and understand some of the causes of their difficulties in the present. I'm also a qualified Master Practitioner in eating disorders.
“It really made a difference to my mental health having you as my counsellor, I have now hit the ground running, with business and life in general. I love life again! I’m actually welling up just thinking how far I’ve come in that time.”
My therapy practice in Guildford is within easy reach of Camberley, Farnham, Frimley, Godalming, Mayford, Ripley, Send, West Clandon, West Byfleet, Woking, Worplesdon, the A3 and M25.
