I am a qualified Psychotherapist with 7 years experience in NHS mental health services, as well as having worked as a Counsellor within a Secondary School and as a Psychotherapist for a national charity.
I now work full-time in private practice with teenagers and adults, offering both individual and group therapy sessions.
Having trained in a range of different psychological therapies, I now work holistically, integrating different therapies to provide a tailored service for my clients.
Staring from a Humanistic perspective, I believe that everyone has the capability to overcome their problems and that we all try our best in life but that this is often made difficult by our past experiences, our early relationships and our anxieties. In order to overcome any difficulties and live a valued life, it is vital that we learn to manage our anxieties, overcome past traumas and create a compassionate relationship with our self.
By creating a safe and trusting environment, I will support you to explore the impact that your past has on the present, become more aware of unhelpful patterns and allow you develop your innate abilities to overcome lifeâ€™s difficulties. Helping you to work through past experiences and focusing you towards a more positive future, you will be able to lead a more fulfilling life, improve relationships and manage stressful life events
Therapy typically involves a discussion of significant life experiences, creative experimentation to test out new ways of being and learning new coping strategies (e.g. relaxation, mindfulness, stress management techniques) - the balance of these will vary depending on the problems you wish to work through and your personal needs.
Sessions are offered at location across Surrey and I also offer home visits, telephone sessions and Internet-based video therapy.
There is usually no waiting time to begin therapy and I will offer an initial appointment within one week.
