I am a counsellor working in the Farnborough area. I believe my clients have the resources within to achieve the change they seek. I am not the expert, you are the expert in your world and by putting you at the centre of the relationship I am not looking through the lens of my own understanding but walking side by side with you and viewing things from your perspective. My aim is to show empathetic understanding such that you know you have been heard and truly understood.
I work with both adults and young people aged 11 to 25 from my practice in surrey on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling my clients to increase self-awareness and make changes to their life and to live it more authentically.
I am a qualified counsellor working near Guildford, with a diploma in therapeutic counselling and a certificate in counselling young people. My practice integrates person centred theory and existential philosophy. My client work is also informed by solution focused therapy.
My experience, counselling in Farnham, has been developed from working with bereaved and pre-bereaved clients and their families at Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham, near Aldershot. I work part of my week at the hospice, supporting carers and families who have either lost a loved one or are living with a family member with a terminal illness. My role includes offering one to one support at the hospice, over the telephone or using multimedia, such as Zoom or WhatsApp. It also includes the planning and facilitation of support groups for bereaved children and young people. Within my role I have worked with anger, anticipatory grief, anxiety, bereavement and loss, depression, exam stress, family issues, illness, death and dying, loneliness, relationship difficulties and self-harm
As a counsellor in the Farnborough area, I have also gained valuable experience of working with adults from my time at Connect Counselling Services in Camberley. Issues I have worked with included anxiety, co-dependency, depression, eating disorder, grief, low self-esteem, parent support, relationship issues, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and work issues.

As a therapist in the Guildford area I have attended a wide range of additional training that includes Safeguarding Adults, Child Protection, Young People: Identity, Bullying and Failure, Working with Suicide Ideation, Existential Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and L2 How to do Counselling Online: a Coronavirus Primer.
