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.

I am a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in supporting individuals through difficult emotions and experiences, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. We all experience challenging periods in our lives; therapy can offer a safe space to work through these difficulties and support you to develop effective coping strategies to help you move forward. My role is to help you identify the barriers that are keeping you stuck and look at these from a different perspective to enable you to overcome them. The aim of therapy is to equip you with the the knowledge, tools and techniques so that you no longer need me!

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.....

You may be feeling life is just too much to manage right now, perhaps you've had a bereavement or loss, or maybe something from the past is impacting on how you are feeling. Asking for professional help can feel daunting, but once you've made that decision, it can bring relief and then finding the right person, who can hear your concerns and support you, is really important. I can offer a safe, confidential space and give you the time and space to explore what is going on for you, to help you gain awareness and insight into what's troubling you and help you reach your goals.

I am passionate about helping people and mental health. Sometimes it can be difficult to identify why we are feeling the way we are or understand what it is we are feeling, simply talking to a therapist can help us gain better insight into what is going on for us and bring about clarity.

Life can present us with many struggles, ranging from those arising from specific circumstances or existential concerns, through to more complex and long-standing difficulties. I have experience of working with many different concerns, including anxiety, depression, high levels of shame and self-criticism, difficulties in relationships, low self-esteem, self harm and/or suicidal thoughts, sexual abuse, and difficult family dynamics/early experiences (including growing up with parents who may have been very loving, but struggled to recognise and attune to your emotional needs).

Life will always present us with challenges and difficult situations. Sometimes these challenges can get on top of us and we stop living and enjoying our lives as fully as we would like. This is where counselling can be of help. Counselling is about offering a supportive relationship in a safe and confidential environment to talk through whatever is concerning them. Counselling is not about giving advice and counsellors can never be experts in other people’s lives. Counselling is about helping people find their unique strengths to work through a particular issue in the best way for them so that they can live a happy life.

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.

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.

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.

This can feel overwhelming and leave you needing some support and you may find at this time counselling could help. My approach is warm, emphatic, and confidential giving you an opportunity to feel heard and supported. I understand how hard it is to make that first contact and to talk about what is troubling you and I aim to make that first conversation as comfortable as possible.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Guildford are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Guildford then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Guildford, or Child Psychologists in Guildford.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Guildford psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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.
