Coming to the end of summer and into a new season is often a time when people think about therapy … is this you?
Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression or symptoms of stress.
Maybe life feels difficult and a daily uphill battle.
Perhaps you feel stuck in a personal relationship and need to make some changes.
Strong emotions like anger, frustration, stress, anxiety or sadness feel hard to manage.
You could be feeling isolated from others and disconnected from yourself.
Maybe you need to work through something you have never spoken about before so you can move on?
You have decided to make some positive changes and had the courage to reach out and seek support. I can help you.
I can help you develop resilience and personal growth and a sense of choice and control about how you move forward. We will discover your goals and review our work frequently to ensure it meets your needs and expectations.
I consistently see tangible and life-changing results during my work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds with a diverse range of challenging life experiences. I offer a range of counselling approaches to provide the right support to meet your individual needs.
Whilst it can feel daunting to share things for the first time, you may find a sense of relief by getting things off your chest. We will work at a pace which feels safe and comfortable enough for you. I will also challenge and prompt where needed and make observations and reflections to encourage links, insights, and ‘lightbulb’ moments. This can help you understand yourself more, become self-aware and develop a better relationship with yourself and others around you. When you open up and let another person really see you, the transformation starts in how you see yourself and how you relate to others.

Each session is 50 minutes.
Fees are from £70 per session. I offer a free introductory 15-minute call to talk about the kind of support you are looking for, how I can help and to arrange your initial counselling session.
We can meet and work together as long as we both feel it is helpful, whether that is for a few sessions, a few weeks, months or years. We work towards goals and improvements in your life and everyone is different. We will build reviews into our work together, so we know where we are and make sure you are getting what you need.
I am registered with these Insurance Providers; AXA, Vitality, Aetna, Allianz, Aviva, Cigna, WPA. Please ask about fees as these are slightly different to account for necessary admin and invoicing. Please let me know the pre-authorisation code from your insurer so I can invoice them directly.
Yes, I work online (Zoom using a password protected link, WhatsApp or FaceTime), by telephone and in-person. Working online is effective and convenient and offers flexibility. How would you like to meet?
Everything you say is treated with respect and in confidence, except from rare exceptions concerning risk and safety.
A minimum of 48 hours notice is needed if you need to change or cancel a session, otherwise the full session fee is due. No charge is incurred if we can re-schedule a session during the same week. However, if this is not possible the full fee is due. This does not apply to scheduled changes or holidays. This enables me to manage appointments effectively and avoids appointments being unused. Appointments need to be used to achieve the full benefit from counselling. It is important to attend each week as consistency and regularity of sessions provides the best chance of a successful outcome. If I am on holiday, unwell, or it is a bank holiday, there is no charge.
We can meet for sessions online or by telephone, or in-person at my practice location in Godalming – a comfortable and private first-floor consultation room with bathroom facilities.
My practice is located in Godalming, which is convenient for the surrounding areas of Farncombe, Milford, Binscombe, Eashing, Hurtmore, Hascombe, Hambledon, Bramley, Shalford, Shamley Green, Wonersh, Farnham, Guildford, Cranleigh, Woking, Farnham and Dorking.

999 in case of emergency
“Our sessions were a big turning point for me. Meeting you gave me a safe outlet I had not felt before. It feels important to tell you that you came to me at the perfect time, in my darkest hour and I really do appreciate you being there. I can’t put my finger on it, because I just spoke and cried…a lot! But you made a difference in my life, things have shifted and I have moved forward into the career I wanted, I have found love and at last I feel like an ok parent”
“I haven’t had as much feedback from other therapists as I did from you. This helped me sit back and think ‘wow, I hadn’t seen it like that before’. I have learned a lot about how my experiences have shaped my thinking and my way of being in the world. I now feel more accepting of myself, I can stop giving myself such a hard time”
“Thank-you so much for helping me to find myself, to find the inner strength to stand up for myself, for listening and helping me believe in myself. My outlook on life has completely changed. I finally feel free from the past that was holding me back and I have a plan”
“Thank-you so much for your time, skill and patience and all your help over the past five years, it really has made a difference to my life”
“I felt ashamed needing to come here, now I tell everyone to do it”
“This is the hardest thing I have ever done, but my life will always be better for it”
