Child, Young Person and Adult Counsellor / Psychotherapist
**I am available for clients by phone and online / video e.g. Microsoft Teams, Skype, WhatsApp and Zoom during COVID-19. Please message for more information.
Life can throw all sorts of obstacles at us. Sometimes we simply need to talk to someone who is prepared to listen without judgement; who does not 'give advice' but merely holds the space for personal reflection, growth and development. It takes courage to take these first steps.
As a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I am an independent, experienced and professional counsellor / psychotherapist and an approvedAdoptioncounsellor for Barnardo's. I work with children, young people and adults, including couples, across a broad range of client concerns, for example, relationship issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, depression, anxiety and generalised anxiety disorder and trauma. I compliment my private practice in Liphook, Hampshire which is close to Midhurst, West Sussex and Haslemere, Surrey with working for 2 counselling charities, social services, BUPA, Aviva, Axa PPP Healthcare, Aetna Global Benefits, The Priory and in education.
I use an integrative approach, along with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness, which focuses primarily on the relationship between client and therapist. This is built around trust, respect, safety and empowerment. Kindness and compassion are fundamental. In addition, I am trained and qualified in EMDR Therapy which has been approved by NICE as an effective method to work with trauma including PTSD. My work is client led as only you know how you feel. Certain counselling styles suit some people more than others, so I draw from a number of models to provide the right support for you. All ages, gender, race, religion or sexuality are welcome and will be treated with dignity and respect.
