Hello, welcome and thank you for visiting my website.
I am a BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist based near Woking, Surrey and a BSCH/GHC/CNHC registered Clinical Hypnotherapist, with additional specialisms in smoking cessation(CSST registered) and weight loss. I am a fully qualified and experienced EMDR clinician, with full Parts 1-111 qualification and EMDR Advanced Flash Technique training, which allows me to work with major trauma and other distressing emotional issues. I am a qualified and experienced clinical supervisor offering group and individual sessions near Woking to both student and qualified counsellors and hypnotherapists. The Clinical Supervision model in which I am qualified may also be suitable for practitioners from other care-related professions.
I work with a wide range of issues at my Woking practice and have many specialist areas, so please explore the rest of my website for more detail. My extensive training enables me to me to take an integrative, client-led approach. This means that I can combine and adapt several models to suit your individual need as a unique human being, instead of expecting you to fit into to one specific model as no two people are the same. I am a trained and experienced couples/relationship therapist and an NHS-trained youth counsellor. I see individuals, couples and young people aged 12 +, for which I hold enhanced DBS clearance. I welcome referrals from individuals, Mental Health professionals and GPs.
I provide a safe, confidential environment, which is free from judgement or criticism. I believe that the presence of a strong, accepting therapeutic relationship is one of the most important factors in therapy and this has been backed up by research. I offer both short and long-term contracts, but I don't expect you to sign up to a fixed number of sessions and you are free to end therapy whenever you want to.
I offer you a choice of face2face or remote (video/phone) sessions. I use a highly encrypted telemedicine platform, for which you do not need an account. Alternatively, I offer Skype or FaceTime sessions, although these are not as secure. I am fully qualified to offer remote sessions, having undertaken over 100 hours of training designed to meet the core competencies specified by the BACP. I am a member of ACTO (Association for Counselling & Therapy Online).
I also offer holistic therapies which include Reiki (Reiki Master) and Hatha Yoga for well-being. I am registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals as an Experienced Instructor.
I have been counselling since 2001. In 2004 I set up my private counselling/psychotherapy practice in a peaceful residential area in Horsell, near Woking, Surrey and it has since become very well-established. My practice is located just over a mile from Woking mainline station and bus terminal - if you do not drive it is about a 20-min walk or there is a good taxi service from outside Woking mainline station. The villages of Bisley, Chobham, Knaphill, Lightwater, Worplesden, Chertsey and Ottershaw are within easy driving distance. Guildford is approx. 5 miles away and Camberley approx. 10 miles away. I am approx. 10 mins drive from Junction 11 (Chertsey) of the M25 and 15-mins drive from Junction 3 (Lightwater) of the M3. Egham and Staines are also within driving distance. There is unrestricted parking at my practice.
Why not contact me for a FREE initial 20-minute consultation to discuss your therapy needs? There is no obligation involved and I look forward to hearing from you.
***COVID-19 UPDATE*** I am currently unable to offer face to face consultations until it is deemed safe enough to do so.
