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.
There may be many reasons why you might be considering counselling. You may be experiencing a major life event, personal crisis or challenge and may be finding it difficult to work through this on your own.
Counselling is useful for anyone who is interested in exploring their inner thoughts and feelings and wishing to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and a greater level of self awareness.
As children we develop strategies for dealing with the world around us. As we grow and develop into adulthood these coping mechanisms or ways of being can sometimes become problematic and can often be seen in our interaction with others. We can also inherit certain ways of being from our care givers, some of which don’t really belong to us or serve us particularly well. Counselling can help to explore these and help you to think do these really belong to me? Or, are they still helpful to me?
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.
