Counsellor and therapist in Surrey -
Farnham, Godalming, Guildford.
I am a qualified and professionally trained counsellor/therapist, based in Farnham, Surrey, with experience of working with both adults and teenagers 16+ with issues such as depression, generalised anxiety disorder, stress, self-esteem, bereavement, relationship and family dynamics. I offer a calm environment, with an open and compassionate approach.
Finding the strength and courage to come to counselling may feel like a big step, but often it is helpful to talk to a trained professional who is not emotionally connected to you. Sometimes life is challenging and it is hard to cope alone. We can find ourselves facing things which leave us feeling sad, confused, anxious, angry, stuck or isolated.
I will be there to listen to your concerns and fears, and I will empathise with you. Counselling can provide the private space to reflect on those emotional struggles and with the passing of time help you reach a place of understanding, growth and fulfillment. As a 'humanistic' therapist I will be led by you and will support you to find your own way forward.
As a therapist, I was drawn into the counselling world having supported young people with a variety of special needs for 10 years. I wanted to maintain and develop the engagement of that 1:1 relationship, and so the seeds for a career in counselling began germinating. I am passionate about the benefits of talking therapy and believe that reflecting on dilemmas and exploring life events can help you recognise the choices you have and to move towards a place of change, with an increased sense of self-awareness and resilience.
I offer individual, face to face counselling to adults and teenagers/young people over the age of 16 on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
If you are looking for warm and professional counselling support I am available for daytime and limited evening appointments. Email, text or call for a free telephone consultation to see how counselling can help you and to answer any questions you may have and so we can decide if we would like to work together. I look forward to your call or email.
