Welcome!


COVID-19

To minimise any risks from Covid 19 I am only seeing clients online via Zoom for the duration. Should you wish to get in touch, please feel free to contact me at the number given on the right hand side of this screen or email me ([email protected]) Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible! Thank you for visiting.


Please have a look around

Thanks for stopping by. These are difficult days- and clearly causing us all some degree of concern and anxiety. Family, finances, work, job security, relationships have all come under a considerable amount of pressure in the past few weeks. If one or more of these were already in a difficult place then it may feel that things are becoming intolerable. It is often easy to dismiss feelings of sadness or anxiety or finding a way of numbing them, typically with food, drink and/or drugs or other behaviours that ultimately don't serve us well. It takes a certain courage to ask for support and some find this a tough ask from themselves - especially if they believe they should have 'the answers'. Speaking confidentially with a counsellor might be the first step in finding a way out of that difficult place.

That being said, it’s important that you find a counsellor/ therapist who meets your needs and with whom you feel comfortable working. While generally it's wise to 'shop around', I fully appreciate this can be time-consuming and even a bit confusing. (A recent search on the BACP directory for a therapist within 10 miles of Surbiton (KT6), where we are based, returned over 900 results!) Given the number of counsellors/ therapists - not to mention the types of counselling available in between KT1 and SW1 postcodes, you may already have found the task to be more complicated than you might have thought.
To this end the link below will provide you with independent information that may help focus your search.

If, having read this information, you have any queries, please feel free to drop me a line or leave me a voicemail, (Tel: 07846 827062) with no obligation , and I’ll get back to you as soon as I’m available. You can email me via the link at the side of this page.

Thanks for visiting.

Counselling

I work as an 'integrative relational' counsellor in Surbiton. This simply means that I have studied a number of different schools of therapeutic approach and through ongoing practice have integrated related elements to promote optimum therapeutic benefit. In recent years I have dealt extensively with addiction of one kind or another through my work with ASCA in Kingston and Richmond*. I also deal with those areas listed below.


Areas of work include

  • Alcohol, cocaine - substance abuse
  • Stress
  • Personal / Work Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Depression
  • Relationship with food
  • Sexuality
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Co-dependency in relationships


  • * Addiction ?

    Addiction can take a number of forms and often masks an underlying issue. If allowed to develop, it can become very destructive. Addictive behaviours aren't confined to excessive use of alcohol or drugs. They include for example, unhealthy relationships, food, sex or pornography. Generally, repeated behaviours which are damaging to you, and often those around you, may be signs of an addiction. Therapy helps uncover the underlying issues and can be a key factor in extinguishing unhealthy habits.


    Been feeling down?

    Why not get a sense of where you are in the general scheme of things by using the NHS mood checker tool. It will give you an indication of just how anxious or depressed you might be feeling and whether you might need to do something about it.
