About Me

counselling in Wonersh, Shamley Green, Bramley and Guildford


After many years of working in the corporate world, I made the decision to re-qualify as a psychotherapist because I believe in the power of talking therapy and how empowering it can be in the way that we relate to one another on a daily basis.






I believe counselling is a gift and that it can be life changing; I feel deeply moved when I am able to help clients make constructive steps towards a positive change in their life.  Positive change can mean better relationships with the ones we love and the people that we interact with on a daily basis, be it family or work. I have always worked in a people focused environment and psychotherapy seemed a natural step in using my existing skills to help those with a range of problems understand how these problems have arisen, and most importantly move toward overcoming them.

My original training was based around Clarkson's theory, which resonates with my own personal belief that relationships should have a nurturing element (or be reparative). I believe that society makes human nature inherently judgmental and I believe that to provide a non-judgmental environment is the fundamental basis of a strong working alliance and this, is in itself therapeutic. I also believe that change occurs from looking within, which involves a degree of looking back at one's own conditioning in order to adapt existing patterns of relating which may be causing problems in your daily life.
