MBACP Dip HE Integrative Counselling

Hello, and welcome to my profile page!

I know life can get difficult, and taking that first step to counselling can sometimes feel nerve-racking. My aim is to be with you and help you feel comfortable and relaxed, and to allow you to work at your own pace. Whatever has brought you to this point of seeking help, you do not have to do it alone. I am a qualified integrated counsellor and psychotherapist, and I draw on different approaches according to each individual client. These approaches include:

• Person-centred
• Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
• Psychodynamic
• Internal Family Systems (IFS)
• Creative interventions

I aim to create a safe space where you feel comfortable sharing your concerns and fears without feeling judged or misunderstood. I can help you discover practical tools that enable you to cope better, and if appropriate, take time to look at some of the underlying ‘root’ causes of the problem.

I provide support and offer a warm and empathic approach as we explore any concerns you may have. I prioritise building a therapeutic relationship, so that you can feel that our sessions together are a place where you do not have to put on a mask, but can feel comfortable enough to be your true self.

I can offer long-term or short-term counselling to suit your individual requirements, and I can also offer single-session therapy, which is a 2-hour session in which you can bring anything you feel you need some help or guidance with. These sessions are similar to life coaching, where we work more in the here and now. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for good practice, and work with adults over the age of 18.

Each single session is 50 minutes, and takes place at The Eaves in Guildford or Godalming.


I have previously worked in social care managing an office supporting elderly people living alone at home. For the last 2 years, I have worked for Lighthouse Counselling, supporting clients with a wide range of problems. This work has involved short-term and open-ended contracts as well as single-session therapy sessions.
