HELLO and WELCOME
Why seek counselling now?
People often seek counselling when life feels uncertain, confusing or out of control. Increasingly I hear the phrases “I don't feel like myself”, "this isn't me", "I've never had anxiety before" and "I don't know how I got to this point". Feelings like this can be hard to navigate on our own.
Sometimes it might feel easier to 'soldier on', 'pull ourselves together' and 'get on with it' but pushing away or denying our true feelings leads to an inauthentic way of living which over time can increase feelings of anxiety and depression, cause physical illness (bodily aches and pains) or lead to the use of unhealthy coping mechanisms.
You are not alone, most of us will at some point experience anxiety and emotional distress in either our personal or professional lives. Sometimes we are able to create our own methods of coping and at other times we may feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope with our experiences alone.
Maybe you have found yourself feeling as if:
You should be able to solve your problems alone
You don’t want to upset anyone
You don’t want to burden family or friends
You feel self-conscious or embarrassed about your problems
You worry others will judge you
You worry people won't understand
Having the courage and space to talk confidentially about the areas of your life that are causing concern or distress with someone who really listens and empathises without judgement can bring about insight and perspective that is empowering and restorative.
Could you benefit from a private and respectful place where you can consider and discuss the situation you find yourself in?
... where you will feel safe and supported
... where you can understand yourself better
... where you can build a clearer picture of what you need in your life

Area of Specialism
I currently work for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care as a Counsellor working with patients and their families coping with the effects of chronic or terminal illness and bereavement. Navigating our way towards death or through grief can be challenging and hard to talk about, especially with those closest to us. I have a special interest in this area, helping individuals to explore their multifaceted and complex spectrum of emotional, physical, cognitive and behavioural responses to loss and change.
I have a particular interest on the impact of stress on both the mind and body, and deliver stress management workshops to teams in business. Clients include HSBC, Farebrother, and Quin-Essence Ltd.
I spent a number of years working for the NHS (Surrey Youth Counselling Service) as a youth counsellor. I have a special interest in working with this age group who increasingly suffer with anxiety and depression due to the pressures and experiences they face. My work included working with those who have experienced domestic abuse, neglect, bereavement, self-harm or are affected by long-term illness, as well as issues at school and within the family.
As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice . In accordance with this, I attend on-going professional supervision and participate in continued professional development.
Thank you for visiting my website, I hope you found it helpful.
