Counsellor in Walton-on-Thames
Are you experiencing problematic behaviours that are affecting your happiness? Or maybe you’d like to become better able to tolerate painful feelings? Perhaps you’re unsure of your sense of purpose or identity? Or would you like to explore your ability to develop lasting and meaningful relationships? These are all issues that I have helped clients to explore over the ten years that I’ve been a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist.
So - what brings you here today?
All of us have personal vulnerabilities and unhelpful patterns that can get in the way of living the life we'd like to lead. Perhaps you're here today because you wish to discuss your vulnerabilities with someone who is trustworthy, kind, non-judgmental and confidential. I’m a firm believer that when met with compassion, acceptance and empathy, these vulnerabilities and patterns can slowly start to lose their power to disrupt our lives. The challenges of modern life mean that sometimes there just isn’t enough of these qualities “in the wild”, so I make them available to clients in my consulting room.
For me, the power of counselling comes from the quality of the relationship that is created between therapist and client. My aim, when we work together, is that we build a relationship where you feel truly heard, understood, accepted and supported for who you are. And that you feel able to trust me as we explore your thoughts and feelings without judgment. I like to think of it as a "collaborative alliance", one human sitting alongside another. It's that relationship that allows us to explore your concerns.
Therapy is not easy. It can get messy at times. It won’t always be linear. There's unlikely to be a single "breakthrough" moment, rather a series of reflections which slowly build deeper insight and understanding; and it requires commitment from both of us.
I offer face-to-face and online counselling (via Zoom). I offer a free telephone consultation to see whether counselling might help you.
You may find that a few sessions can help you to address a specific problem, or you may choose to work on a longer-term basis in order to focus on deeper issues. You are unique and I will work with you to find out which approaches will work best for you. Whichever approach we agree on, be aware that counselling is not an easy journey and requires commitment; there is no magic wand!
I help clients who are experiencing difficulties with:
- Bereavement and loss
- Relationships (not Couples Counselling)
- Postnatal depression and bonding difficulties
- Panic Attacks
- Addiction and compulsions
- Transitions and life events
- Self-esteem and self-confidence
- Sex, sexuality and gender
- Personal identity
- Caring for others
- Family issues
- Feeling lost, stuck or trapped
I work with a number of medical insurers, including Aviva and Vitality.
