'It is good to have an end to journey toward: but it is the journey that matters, in the end.'
- Ursula K. Le Guin, B. 1929
It can be very daunting to consider counselling, and I would like to firstly offer you my utmost respect in taking this initial step.
Research consistently demonstrates the benefits of counselling, and I am humbled to have witnessed these benefits in people with whom I have worked. The testimonials on the next page speak for themselves as to some of the work my clients and I have done together.
I work using an integrative approach, primarily drawing upon the psychodynamic and person-centred modalities. I also work creatively using metaphors, picture cards and modelling clay as I have found these to be helpful aids to our discussions when words alone are hard to find.
I work with individuals over the age of 16, and have experience in working with a broad range of issues. These include anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, abuse, depression, stress, PTSD, OCD, anger management, eating disorders, family and relationship issues, bereavement and loss.
Whatever the reason that brings you here I would welcome you to book an initial consultation with me. There would be no expectation from this for you to commit to counselling, but instead an opportunity to discuss how I might be able to help, and to give you a good idea as to whether you'd like to work together.
I work from a private room in All Saints Church Hall in Lightwater, Surrey.
