Individual and Couples Counselling
BA Hons, Dip Couns
Mobile: 07766 761601
I have a Degree (BA Hons) in Transactional Analysis Counselling and a Diploma in Counselling (The Metanoia Institute). I have trained in Eating Disorders (The National Centre for Eating Disorders) and have integrated CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Brief Solutions Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and many other modes and skills from additional training.
As a member of BACP I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practise in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure, currently in force.
As a counsellor, my work has covered many aspects of human experience such as anxiety, depression, postnatal depression, abuse, addiction and substance misuse, trauma, relationship issues, emotional neglect, eating disorders, lack of motivation / direction, stress, anger, self esteem issues, loss and insomnia.
Over the past five years I have worked as a voluntary counsellor within the NHS, helping clients change unwanted behaviours and working with their underlying issues. I currently work within my private practice based in Bagshot, Surrey.
There are times when our life experiences and expectations make it difficult to find peace and emotional freedom. Sometimes, we just can’t imagine how ‘things’ could be different or how we will ever get what we want and find satisfaction and fulfilment.
My aim is to provide a space in your life where you can just ‘be’; where your thoughts and feelings come first; where you feel safe and appreciated for who you are.
Counselling provides the opportunity to step off ‘the conveyor belt of life,’ gives you time to reflect, helps clarify your thinking and values your feelings. It gives you the skills to develop stepping stones towards change by exploring options, making new decisions and helping you towards reaching your full potential. I will support you through times of uncertainty and help you to decide on a direction and plan of action that feels right and works for you.
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, you can feel certain that my professional, caring, attentive and committed approach will reflect my genuine interest in helping you to change your present and rewrite your future.
