I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) Senior Accredited Therapist working with individuals and couples in Reigate, Surrey.
On this website I address some questions you may have about counselling and psychotherapy and give some information about the work I do.
I started practising in 2001, first with individuals and later with couples. I have a specific interest in one's development during early childhood and how that affects the relationship to ourselves and to others later in life. My work in the NHS, in private practice and with EAP's brings me a wealth of experience in areas such as loss, depression, relationship difficulties, family issues and all the related struggles many of us encounter through life.
It is an enormous step entering therapy, whether it is for the first time or not. There are many different approaches, theories and models, but research shows that what influences the success of therapy is not necessarily the specific type of therapy offered but the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client. The most important thing is finding the therapist who is right for you, and this will come down to personal preference and what feels like a comfortable connection. It may seem a daunting task, but one usually knows pretty quickly if the therapist is the right one, even just by the initial contact.
Please do feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
