I am a qualified, BACP registered practitioner with 3 years experience, working from a private clinic in Godalming, Surrey as well as offering online therapy. I provide a free 20 minute Zoom or telephone consultation and work with adults and younger people, 16+. I work face-to-face with clients at a comfortable, purpose built counselling service in Godalming and also see clients remotely all over the UK.
The free, introductory 20 minute consultation’s purpose is to discuss working together and to answer any questions you may have regarding how I work or counselling in general.
I have worked with clients from 18 to 77 years old, helping them to deal with Social Anxiety, Stress, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Low Mood, Suicidal Ideation, Relationship and family Issues, Body Dysmorphia, Adverse Childhood Experiences, Emotional Abuse and Narcissistic relationships, Low self-esteem and bullying amongst others.
Being person centred means that I respect your autonomy allowing you to bring whatever concerns you wish and at a pace you are comfortable with. I will strive to empathise with your perspective, be non-judgmental and offer a secure, confidential and safe environment within which to explore issues together. I am a very compassionate counsellor which I have found invaluable in building a warm, secure relationship that I believe is at the heart of therapy.
With this I integrate – where appropriate – a psychodynamic approach which can serve to enhance our work together. It teaches one how to see that current beliefs, patterns of behaviour and relating to others can be moulded by experiences from our past and that exploring/resolving those difficult experiences can offer deep insight and healing in the present.
I am a lifelong student of the human condition, philosophy, spirituality and psychology. With the stresses and strains of the modern world so many of us are unaware of our amazing capacity for change, fulfilment and happiness. I cannot guarantee you will achieve all you want to. No-one can. But I guarantee you my utmost endeavour and profoundest commitment to your well-being.
