I am a professionally qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy www.bacp.co.uk. I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework and offer a warm, sensitive and confidential space to be heard and a client led approach without judgement to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
I am professionally qualified and support adults and young people aged 16 and over by offering counselling therapy through face to face, online and telephone sessions and I am experienced in supporting clients in difficult times including anxiety, stress, self confidence, depression, relationships, bereavement, anger or loneliness.
Please contact me if you would like to have a free initial telephone consultation to see if counselling could be right for you.
My practice is based in Camberley, Surrey and I support clients in the local area offering counselling therapy for Fleet, Farnborough, Ascot, Sandhurst and Windlesham and all areas within easy reach of Camberley.
I offer therapy through online and telephone counselling as well as face to face sessions which take place at my practice in Camberley. I offer short term or longer term counselling and work Monday to Friday with some availability in the evenings.
Every client is different and so I really listen to each client's needs and what they would like to achieve in counselling.
As a professionally trained Integrative Counsellor I am experienced in using different counselling approaches which means I can take an individual approach to meet each client's individual needs.
I am also trained in using creative resources in therapy as some clients find this way of working helpful to think about thoughts and feelings. and tailor it to meet particular needs.
I offer a confidential and supportive space to be heard and accept my clients for who they are. Working together with my clients, we hold regular reviews to reflect on the goals for therapy, think about how the counselling is going and to see if having more sessions could be helpful.
