With an MA in Psychotherapy & Counselling, PG Dip in CBT, PG Dip in Couples Counselling & Psychotherapy, Dip in PTSD , EMDR, Cert Mediation, and having lived in different countries I also have an understanding of diverse cultures.
Are you facing challenges in your personal or work life or issues over which you have no control such as loss, health, or any crisis, (big or small)? Are you looking for a therapist who offers respect, understanding, validation of you and your unique circumstances and who provides an environment of trust where you can both work collaboratively to explore your way of 'being in the world' and where you will gain and develop your inner resources and resilience and where together you will discuss different perspectives and choices to make to improve your quality of life? Your therapeutic journey is an opportunity for transformation!

I specialise in providing therapeutic interventions for individuals who have experienced trauma resulting in enduring mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD ), complex PTSD , anxiety, depression, as well as complex interpersonal and relational difficulties.
There are many reasons why individuals choose to access therapy and it can be a daunting, sometimes painful, step. Please be assured that, with over a decade of experience, I offer an even-handed yet supportive approach in a safe, confidential setting. If you are feeling disconnected from yourself and those around you, are struggling to manage feelings of anxiety, are managing your distress through strategies such as alcohol, illegal substances, or self-harming behaviours, have experienced a trauma, or witnessed a traumatic event, I can help.

With more than 10 years’ experience in the NHS, I specialise in working with adults with a wide range of diagnoses and issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD , phobias and interpersonal difficulties.
I believe psychology can improve everyone's quality of life. ​ My aim is to work in a collaborative, compassionate way to help reduce distress, develop your ability to manage any ongoing difficulties and help you develop a more meaningful and valued life. As a Clinical Psychologist, I use evidence-based treatments and draw on the recommendations of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE guidelines). Put simply our sessions will aim to reduce unhappiness or dysfunction, and increase your ability to cope and sense of fulfilment. ​

Life is a safar. A journey. The road is often rough, strewn with obstacles, full of twists. Are you feeling the need for change, to be more in control? Are you stuck, blocked in a spiralling cycle of anxiety that feels impenetrable? Do you feel alone with endless negative thoughts that go round in your head? I strongly believe that once you understand why you act and think the way you do, then you can silence your inner critic and make the changes you desire. Nelson Mandela famously said 'it always seems impossible till its done'. Second to life itself, the most important journey we will ever make is the journey within ourselves.

If you're searching for someone to help with difficult or painful experiences then there's a good chance that I can help you. My specialist interest is in helping you to resolve trauma and in working with you to clear unpleasant symptoms related to this. I don't operate a rigid definition of the word trauma - it is whatever it means to you. Trauma might manifest in current symptoms including anxiety, depression, anger issues, relationship problems, phobias or OCD or indeed anything else. I look forward to hearing from you and to working together to start making those desired inner changes.

We can all find life hard at times. It can throw up difficulties that feel overwhelming and out of our control. I support adults and teenagers through a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues and Asperger Syndrome. When we experience distress, sadness, loneliness, anxiety or depressed mood, it can feel difficult to bear and leave us feeling powerless. Working alongside a therapist means you need not face these difficulties alone.

I’m an experienced, BACP registered counsellor working in Reigate, Surrey. I have many years of working online too-a necessity for now, sadly. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’re feeling something that is getting in the way of how you’d like to be. Maybe you’re sad, angry, anxious,low, or struggling to like yourself. Maybe you’re feeling OK but you’d like to improve your relationship with other people in your life-such as a partner, family members, friends or colleagues.

With over 15 years experience, every single client I worked with was ideal to me, as being unique, with his/her story, difficulties, weaknesses but also strengths. At times clients come to therapy with a specific goal, other times they do not have a clue, and this is part of the process. If a client is now reading my profile, he/she may be struggling with a recent or more long-standing emotional distress, not able to sleep, concentrate, work, relate to others, etc. He/she may be worrying about what to say to a psychologist; what to expect; possibly fearful of being judged, not understood; if the psychologist would be good enough...

Most people at some point in their lives will struggle with painful feelings or may feel overwhelmed by past or present experiences. These can make us feel lost, anxious, confused, helpless, distressed or angry, sometimes without us knowing why. Counselling is also not just for supporting people through a crisis. Many people come to counselling to explore and get a better understanding of themselves and their lives. Whatever you are experiencing, it can be difficult to explain how we feel to the people who are closest to us. Sometimes it is easier to talk to someone who is separate from your everyday life.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
