Update 21 May 2018

Please note I currently have a full practice and I am not taking on new clients.

(Counselling Students embarking on your counselling journey please do still contact me).

Please visit BACP's website (www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk) to find an alternative BACP therapist.

In the interim, if you require immediate assistance, contact the Samaritans:- telephone 116 123 or text 07725 909090.

Welcome to my website which I hope will give you an idea of how I work.

What is interesting is that you are only born with two fears.....fear of falling and fear of loud noises; everything else (thoughts, feelings and behaviour) is learnt and what is learnt can be unlearnt if you want to.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy from my private practice in Ripley near Guildford and Woking in Surrey.

I am a proud registered and accredited member of the BACP.

Welcome. Free Consultation - Green

It is important for you to find the right counsellor.
Complimentary for individuals

    Extensive experience in a wide spectrum of issues including:-

  • Couple counselling (affairs/betrayals, trust issues, difficulty communicating, conflicting values)
  • Alcohol dependency / alcoholism (more info)
