As an Integrative Relational Counsellor/Psychotherapist I am qualified in Humanistic and Developmental-Psychodynamic perspectives. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and incorporate Mindfulness into my Practice.
I have received specialised training in the ‘Rewind Technique’ facilitating fast trauma, anxiety, panic and phobia recovery.
I provide a safe, empathic and warm space in which a therapeutic relationship of trust, respect and equality can be built. Only you know what it is like to be you, so it is important for you to be listened to, and feel valued and secure enough with me to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to be able to make sense of your experiences or patterns of behaviour without fear of criticism or judgement.
Counselling can sometimes be painful, and psychotherapy can be hard work, but with the commitment from you to attend each week they can be incredibly healing, rewarding and empowering.
I currently have my own Private Practice in Farnborough which I started as an Affiliate with The Eaves Counselling and Psychology in Farnham. Prior to this, I worked at the Farnham and Guildford Colleges as a student and staff counsellor. I am easily accessible from Fleet, Frimley, Camberley, Aldershot and surrounding areas.
I am now resuming face-to-face services at my Farnborough Practice due to the large size of the suite, but this is something I must assess depending on the individual needs and circumstances of each client. Please read the Covid-19 Face-to-Face Counselling Policy for more information. A copy of the Risk Assessment can be provided on request.
In addition to private practice, I have volunteered for the Rape and Sexual Assault Support Centre (RASASC) working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse and victims of sexual assault.
Prior to becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked in frontline services such as the criminal justice system, children’s centres and the Citizens Advice Bureau in addition to volunteering as a mentor for SSAFA and The Prince’s Trust.
