Counsellor and psychotherapist Hampshire and Surrey borders.
Farnham, Godalming, Guildford.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I am able to support existing and new clients via secure video on WhatsApp, Zoom or by phone. We are all experiencing feelings of uncertainty during these unsettled times, if you would like some support you are welcome to call or email for a free 20 minute consultation.
Please see my 'Testimonials' page for feedback from people I have previously worked with. You can see how counselling support has been helpful to them and how they have experienced me.
What happens in counselling?
People often feel scared or worried about making that first phone call or their first visit to counselling, it is completely 'normal' to feel concerned about sharing personal thoughts with a stranger, but seeking professional help can make a real difference to what is happening for you now and in the future.
I will welcome you to a time that is solely for you, where you can talk about whatever you wish. You might be feeling sad, confused, anxious or angry. Any feelings you have, you can bring to counselling and I will listen, truly listen. The difference in talking to a parent, friend or partner is that I am objective, I am uninvolved. I am an experienced, trained observer of the material you bring and all that I see and hear.
Do you feel as if thoughts in your head are spinning round and round and it's hard to make sense of them? My job is to help you join the dots in your life. This clarity can feel both enlightening and empowering and can affect how you feel about yourself and the relationships around you.
As a counsellor, I was drawn into therapeutic world having supported young people with a variety of special needs for 10 years. I wanted to nurture the unique and special nature of that one to one relationship. I am passionate about the benefits of talking therapy. In my mind, there is nothing more powerful than two people sitting opposite each other in a room; one person being truly listened to, without judgement or criticism.
