I enjoy working with men and women from all walks of life.
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.

My speciality is dealing with trauma related issues in particular domestic violence (both female and male survivors), sexual abuse and post traumatic stress.
Clients come to me because they feel something is not quite right in their lives. They may be anxious about relationships, work, college or simply feel that they cannot cope with life. They want someone to listen to them in a non judgemental way. Many are stuck with past patterns of behaviours or negative thought patterns which no longer work for them. They may be wondering what therapy entails so I aim to put them at their ease when they first contact me. Clients tell me our sessions are relaxing, practical, sometimes even fun as we work together to make positive changes to their lives.

Motherhood can be profoundly intense and triggering.You deserve to thrive,not just survive day to day, pouring your energy into other people.My clients have often overcome stressful life events or difficult childhoods and find that 'old stuff' bothers them again because of the stresses and triggers of motherhood.Becoming a mother involves a breaking down of your old life and building a new one. It is a creative process that includes mourning for lost parts and usually some confusion and uncertainty. The transition is enormous and different for each woman .

I am a fully qualified and registered psychotherapist with substantial experience of working with adults on a one to one basis. I work from a consultation room in Godalming and have day and evening availability for appointments. An initial telephone consultation is free of charge to see whether you would like to work together. Counselling/psychotherapy may be sought for many reasons - sometimes life may feel overwhelming due to a specific trauma, or an on-going sense of inner tension/unease that is hard to explain or understand. I offer a genuine, confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space to help you to feel safe.

Talking to friends or family can feel impossible, you might not want to feel like a burden or offered unwanted advice. Maybe you have found yourself providing support, not receiving it. Friends and family, although well meaning don't always leave you feeling heard or validated. In our sessions you will be the priority, we will reflect your past present and future to understand what is happening and how to make changes that feel right for you at a pace that suits you. We will figure out what is keeping you stuck in your discomfort and identify ways to begin moving forwards.

We can all have difficulties in everyday life and encounter problems that we simply find hard to cope with alone. You may feel worried, anxious, low, confused, isolated or may be experience difficulties in relationships. You may be suffering from feelings of low self esteem or low self confidence. You may have been diagnosed with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, or maybe you are just feeling sad. When these feelings and thoughts persist and become overwhelming it may be difficult to know which way to turn.

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.

I work using Zoom which allows you to access counselling from your own environment. This cuts out travelling time and may fit into a busy schedule. Even so, I recommend that you allow at least 15 minutes after sessions to think through what we have talked about. There is a need for you to create privacy so that we can speak freely and you are able to gain the most you can from the work we do together. Over the past seventeen years as a qualified counsellor I have helped clients with depression, addiction, codependency, anxiety, recovery from harmful relationships, bereavement and loss, trauma, family dynamics and workplace stress.

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.....

Hello, my name is Indre and I am a qualified counsellor in an advanced training in psychotherapy. I work short-term or long-term depending on individual's needs. 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.

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.
