MA, MBACP (Snr. Accred) Individual and Couple Therapist
I am a BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) Senior Accredited Therapist working with individuals and couples
in South Godstone, Surrey, and via telephone and video.
It is an enormous step entering therapy, whether it is for the first time or not. There are many different approaches, theories and models to select from,
but research shows that what influences the success of therapy is not the type of therapy but the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client.
The most important thing is finding the therapist who is right for you.
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.
I started practising in 2000, 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.
In terms of therapeutic style, I consider myself an integrative therapist – meaning I use several approaches. Whilst my bedrock is psychodynamic theory,
I have also studied psychoanalytic theory, attachment theory and psychosynthesis, giving me a rich foundation from which to work.
