About Me


About Me

I am a Counsellor in private Practice in Godalming, Surrey and Weybridge, Surrey

My Godalming Practice is within easy reach of Guildford, Bramley, Camberley, Aldershot and Farnham. My Weybridge Practice is close to Esher, Walton-on-Thames, Hampton Court, Thames Ditton, Shepperton, Chertsey and the surrounding areas. Both Practices are easily accessible by car and have good parking facilities. Travel by train or bus is also possible.

I have a wealth of clinical experience working with people from many different backgrounds. For many years I worked in a number of business environments and understand the stressors that can affect people personally and professionally and the importance of self-care. The information here will give you an insight into what counselling involves as well as the way that I work. Hopefully this will enable you to take the next steps in seeking some professional help and finding the right Counsellor to work with.

Sometimes life events can overwhelm us and we can feel stuck and unable to find the way forward. At other times we just need someone who will really listen to us and treat us with respect. At these times talking to a professional can be helpful. It takes great courage to ask for help. The therapeutic relationship is different from other relationships because it is all about you, the client. I am pleased that you are considering whether counselling could help you. It is vital that a trusting relationship is built up which is supportive and non- judgemental. My hope in facilitating this process is to empower you and help you find resources within yourself.

I believe all people are unique and have intrinsic worth. Everyone’s life story is important and I tailor the way I work to suit your needs – always sensitively and at your pace. I truly believe that it is possible to work through the struggles of life and come to a place of freedom where you are then able to live your life with renewed hope and vision.

I offer the highest level of confidentiality within the Ethical Framework of the Professional Bodies to which I belong. I am a Registered and Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, a Registered and Accredited Counselling Practitioner with the Association of Christian Counsellors and a Registered and Accredited Counsellor with the National Counselling Society. I am a Bupa, Aviva and Cigna Recognised Counsellor.

Depending on Government regulations regarding the pandemic, I am offering face-to- face appointments (with protocols in place) and also working on Zoom.  Nicholson House and The Eaves are compliant with Government  Guidelines regarding Covid-19.  
My offer to NHS and Key Workers for sessions on Zoom remains in place.
