Sometimes when we are feeling low or depressed we need to talk but may not feel that sharing personal thoughts with friends or family is appropriate. Perhaps we do not feel 'heard' by our loved onesor maybe they haven't the time to listen. Can you imagine, I wonder, how it would feel to be able to talk in complete confidence, without fear of being judged, to someone who will listen and empathise for as long as is necessary until you feel you have control over the problem in hand?
I offer both psychotherapy and counselling in Surrey. Most of my work is long term psychotherapy. A fuller explanation of the difference between psychotherapy and counselling can be found on thissite. The best psychotherapy is tailored to the individual and the therapeutic relationship is an important contributor to its success.
Counselling is a talking therapy and offers a space to explore the difficulties and challenges you are facing in your life. A counsellor is trained to help you find your own answers to the problemsyou face, and to support you in working towards increasing your sense of competency and self-worth.
I am a qualified experienced counsellor; I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling which is complemented by a BA (Hons) in counselling. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling andPsychotherapy and have been accredited since 2010. As part of my accreditation I am committed to ongoing proffessional development. My therapeutic approach to counselling is integrative which means I am able to adapt my way of working to each individual person be that short or long term therapy.
