Helping individuals, young people, couples and families

I am an experienced and well qualified psychotherapist registered with BACP, fully insured and holding an enhanced DBS/CRB check.

My private practice is in Cobham Surrey where I see individuals, couples, adolescents and families.

I am a certified Relate practitioner working for the last 6 years in Mid Surrey and SW London. I also work as a counsellor in a Higher Education College and a Secondary School, where I see young people from the age of 11.

Top Tips

Life is hectic and most of us forget what can make us and our loved ones feel fulfilled. 

Here some top tips to practice regularly:

  • Show you care: Tell your partner, children, friends that you appreciate them and what it is that you like about them.
  • Show your interest: Actively listen and respond in a non-blaming way.
  • Show your understanding: Accept differences (values, emotions, interests)
  • Show your affection: Give the ones you love a hug
