Life can feel anything but smooth sometimes. Relationships and experiences from both your past and your present can make you feel anxious, depressed or simply overwhelmed. Counselling can help you to make sense of these feelings. It can offer you the opportunity to reflect upon the place you have reached- away from the 'noise' and competing demands of everyday life. I believe that we all have the inner resources to thrive (and not just survive) and counselling can be the vehicle to tap into this potential. By offering you a non-judgemental space I can help you to untangle your feelings and develop new perspectives.

My main aim in life has and always will be to help people find peace and joy in their lives. This can be very difficult to source when life today is so challenging. Whether it is financial worries, loss of a loved one, disability, illness, family issues, bullying, work pressure, trauma, (amongst others) all can induce stress, depression and anxiety. Besides a wealth of life experience, I have a degree in Integrative relationship counselling, which enables me to work in a way to suit each individual and their issues. We will work together at your pace to find a healing path.

You are brave to get this far, I am here to help you go further; to become strong in your mental and emotional health. I believe that when pain we carry is faced in counselling, with insight, gentleness and compassion, healing comes. Healing then releases energy which enables you to be and to live well. Many people have survived not just childhood, but large junks of their lives by focusing on other peoples' desires and needs. And who, now, are virtual strangers to their own-selves, making functioning on a daily basis an uphill challenge as they carry anxiety, depression, PTSD or battle negative feelings or feel misunderstood.

I offer support to clients who may be experiencing times of anxiety, depression, bereavement or sleep difficulties. Perhaps you are struggling with a particular life event, and would like to talk through difficulties with someone other than family or friends. I offer empathic and non-judgemental listening in a safe space, allowing clients to explore what is going on for them. I also offer more proactive, solution focused ways of encouraging self-support and strategies.

As a Counselling and Health Psychologist, I work mostly with adult clients including those suffering from the adverse effects of negative, toxic or traumatic life experiences, events or relationships; those experiencing distressing and often debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD or other mental health conditions and those struggling with the diagnosis, treatment or consequences of cancer or other often debilitating medical conditions. The approach taken in therapy will depend on the specific needs of the individual client, taking into account practical considerations such as cost and time constraints.

Are you experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your life? Perhaps you are feeling stuck and unable to move forward? Whatever your reason for considering therapy and viewing my profile, it is often the case that we 'hit the wall' or 'crash' emotionally before we can identify that we may need professional support. When our usual coping mechanisms no longer work the struggle can be overwhelming. As your therapist I recognise this as your first and critical step toward positive change. You are I'm sure familiar with the phrase 'if you do what you've always done...you get what you've always got' and how true it is.....

Have you been affected by a traumatic event are you suffering from PTSD or complex PTSD. Do you have flashbacks, anxiety, depression or maybe you can't understand the triggers that force you into a feeling of freezing, fear or running away. Maybe you were in an accident or witnessed an accident. Maybe you witnessed domestic abuse as a child or were physically or emotionally neglected or abused. Processing past events in EMDR therapy can significantly reduce feelings of anxiety, anger, stress, sadness and more allowing you to engage in life again, achieving your goals improving self-confidence and self esteem

Sometimes relationships can seem such a struggle. Difficulties with trust and commitment, the arrival of children, redundancy, ill-health, infidelity, 'empty nest' syndrome, retirement, bereavement - these can all pose significant challenges to our ability to form and maintain a loving, emotionally fulfilling connection. Maybe you are at a crisis point, feel stuck, or are trying to work out whether or not to separate? You might be unhappy with your sexual relationship. If you feel like you need some help, I will listen and support without judgement, and can offer you counselling that is professional, sensitive and confidential.

Psychotherapy is a powerful tool to enhance one's life and potential. My approach is relational - using Transactional Analysis tools. Although, most struggles and limiting thinking/behaviour stem from our past, the therapeutic relationship can help to uncover these areas and be a vehicle of change.

In an ever-changing and uncertain world, counselling is an opportunity to take stock and reflect on how life feels for you. No matter what your concern might be, I can give you a safe place to explore your unique take on life. Difficult thoughts and feelings can be listened to respectfully and without fear of being judged. Whether you're feeling anxious, unfulfilled or unable to cope - you don't have to face your struggle alone. Talking things through can lighten the emotional load, restore perspective and bring positive change.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Guildford?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Guildford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
