Counsellor in Epsom

In the middle of difficulty lies great opportunity. - Albert Einstein

I am a qualified Integrative-Relational Counsellor. My aim as a therapist is to give you an experience of being supported and guided no matter what your struggle may be from relationship problems, work, anger, bereavement, divorce, addiction, co-dependency, illness, depression, anxiety or unhappiness. I can help you understand your unique situation so that you can make clear and solid choices that work for you. I help support my clients to identify their current struggles and how they view the world within those struggles in order to find deeper meaning and purpose.

I offer a free 30 minute initial assessment, where we discuss what your needs and expectations are from the counselling process and it enables me to get a brief personal history. In addition, this is an opportunity to discuss how we could work together, exploring key goals and practicalities such as time of sessions, length (short or long term) and fees. I do offer a limited number of concessions for people with financial hardship. I have times available during the day and evening.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I have worked in the field since 2006, facilitating groups, working with couples and individuals.

My aim is to help my clients gain awareness of their way of coping with all their dynamics and how this keeps them in a state of anxiety rather than opening to the possibility of choosing something new. I believe that we have all the resource we need within and as we discover and turn more and more to our authentic voice, our goal of having a life of love, connection and purpose becomes attainable.

Life is all about choices, and those choices frame the way we experience life and the level of joy and happiness we can attain. Our choices are framed by our beliefs, many of which we consciously and subconsciously formed as we grew up and experienced the world. Together, we can explore the basis of these beliefs and focus on what is most important to you in your relationship with yourself and others. I see my role as a counsellor as collaborator in the process of change and growth, and I will draw upon the counselling technique that is most appropriate to each client.
