We all go through difficult times in life and struggle with issues that cause us anxiety  and distress. I provide professional counselling to help you to explore the areas in your life that you may want to change. I work with adults,  young people and children in school year 5 and above. Due to the current COVID pandemic, I am working mainly online at present.

 

With the onset of the COVID pandemic everyone has experienced huge changes in the way that they live their lives.

For some, this has been a time to recharge batteries, take stock and identify changes they would like to make in their life, and I can help you to explore those options.

For others it has been a time to spend with children and loved ones and now the return to school, work and living a 'new normal' and unknown life is bringing up anxieties in adults and children alike. I would be happy to support you or your child and help you to find better ways of coping.

Some clients have experienced traumatic events that have left them feeling fearful, stressed, low or burnt out. I can help you to work through your feelings and help you to restore a sense of balance and stability again. If you have lost a loved one I can support you through the grieving process.

I can offer you a safe supportive space in which you can explore your feelings and we can explore together how you may achieve a new way of living.

I am based close to Guildford, Surrey

About counselling
Can I help?
What can I offer?

Counselling offers you a  confidential space in which to explore the issues that cause you distress. Counselling is not about giving you advice or telling you what to do.

I can offer you a safe environment to explore your feelings and to reflect on the areas of your life that you might want to change.

Everyone is an individual and, as an Integrative Counsellor,  I draw on a wide range of counselling theories and techniques to tailor the overall approach to your individual needs. Together, we aim to work on gaining a better understanding of the issues and concerns that bring you to therapy.

  • Relationship problems

  • Anxiety & depression

  • Stress

  • Low confidence

  • Low self-esteem

  • Loss and bereavement
