Working with people struggling with a range of mental health issues - I draw on evidence from the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) using therapy such as CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), ACT ( Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and EMDR.
I work with people who are struggling to manage a range of issues - including anxiety, stress, depression, phobias, OCD, grief, trauma, relationship issues, bi-polar disorder, hoarding issues. I offer a non-judgemental, warm, safe space to think about the main issue troubling you at the moment, how it may be effecting your mood, your relationships, your day to day activities. We will also think about strengths you have and how you can build on these to develop more useful and helpful coping strategies.

I am trained in CBT/ ACT /CFT (see website for further details) and integrate these where needed to offer an individualised approach.
It can be difficult to choose a therapist and to understand the various titles therapists go by, as well as the different types of therapies and counselling on offer. However, I personally think one of the most important factors in choosing a therapist is the fit between the client and therapist and whether the relationship feels warm and empathic. My therapeutic style is to identify and build on existing strengths and to offer a safe supportive space to explore current difficulties. Having had my own psychotherapy, I am familiar with what it feels like to be on the receiving end of therapy and I am sensitive to this during my work.

If you have never had therapy before, it can be difficult to know what to expect. Even if you have, different practitioners take different approaches; at the end of the day, we’re all human too. Working with me, you will find a warm and safe environment to share and explore your thoughts, feelings or beliefs. There are hundreds of approaches to therapy; from the more well known psychotherapy + CBT to lesser known ACT Therapy or Compassion Focussed Therapy.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, isolated or just not feeling yourself? Has the unprecedented events of Covid-19 effected your mood or relationships? You are in the right place. We have all had times like these and wondered where to turn. I offer a compassionate, non-judgemental, and confidential space, where we can sensitively explore what your difficulties are. Being given the opportunity to talk to someone you can trust and who willingly listens, can provide you with the time and space you need to better understand yourself, how your past effects your present, and your behavioural patterns.

When I work with clients we create an understanding of how their unique life experiences have led to their current difficulties. I will not take the position that something is ‘wrong' with you. We will work on ways to change your sense of stuckness rather than ‘fixing’ you. I am interested in you, your life and how your experiences have had an impact on you – I am not here to find faults with you. I strive for you to find a greater sense of understanding and recognition of your pain and sense of empowerment over change. We will create meaningful change by processing painful memories and working with unhelpful beliefs.

Life...Relationships...Work....

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...

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Epsom or for an Epsom ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
