About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

My private practice is based in Cobham, Surrey, working one-to-one with adults and adolescents, offering short and long term therapy.

I have extensive experience working with adolescents. For many years I was a youth counsellor for Heads Together, an organisation providing counselling for young adults aged 14-24. I also provided counselling support to parents within highly vulnerable families.

Issues I regularly work with include:

  • Anxiety and associated behaviours and symptoms
  • Bereavement, grief and loss
  • Depression
  • Relationships - with self and others
  • Family conflict and dysfunction
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Abuse - in its different forms
  • Work related stress
  • Personal crisis and breakdown

Common amongst teenage clients:

  • Parental separation/divorce and change
  • Self-harm and suicidal thoughts
  • Anxiety, panic attacks
  • Depression and low mood
  • Bullying - on and offline
  • Relationship problems

I work in accordance with the BACP's Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions (www.bacp.co.uk/ethics) and attend regular clinical supervision.
