Psychodynamic counselling in Walton on Thames, Hersham, Esher, Weybridge, Cobham and surrounding areas.
Welcome to my website. I'm a qualified and experienced counsellor based in Walton on Thames offering a professional, confidential and safe environment for you to explore your current difficulties.
I offer time limited (short term) and open ended individual counselling to adults in Walton on Thames, Hersham, Weybridge, Esher and surrounding areas.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I adhere to their professional code of conduct and ethical framework for good practice in counselling and psychotherapy.
My approach to counselling is psychodynamic. Psychodynamic theory focuses on how your past and past relationships influence your behaviour and relationships in the here and now, with an emphasis on childhood development and how these experiences are translated into adult life.
In exploring your present situation we can review your family history and past experiences and help you to identify how these experiences may have shaped your patterns of relating and behaviour in both the past and present. We can also look at how these patterns and beliefs about yourself and the world around you might be challenged in order to bring change and acceptance to your present situation.
As a therapist I have experience working with adults in community based counselling services in London and Hampshire and have also worked therapeutically with children within a primary school setting.
I have experience helping people who are struggling with a wide range of difficulties including:
Prior to training as a counsellor I spent over 10 years working in the field of Human Resources for a number of organisations in the voluntary and higher education sector. I have also worked in a consultative capacity for a number of small charities in the voluntary sector delivering coaching, mentoring, mediation and outplacement support.
I have a particular interest in perinatal mental health and working with postnatal depression, postnatal PTSD and fertility issues.
If you are feeling anxious, depressed or unable to cope and would like to talk to a counsellor, please do get in touch. My private practice is based in Walton on Thames, a short walk from Hersham station and within easy reach of Esher, Weybridge Surbiton and Cobham. Off street parking is also available.
