Online video and phone therapy

Although we can't meet face to face at the moment, I offer therapy via online video sessions or on the phone. This is just as effective and many people like the freedom to speak with me from wherever they might be in the world!

What do you need?

Whatever you need from me – counselling, longer-term psychotherapy, relationship therapy or psychosexual (sex) therapy – we’ll explore your difficulties together, in total confidence. I'll listen to you without judgement. And I'll work with you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and support you in changing them if you want to.

As well as working in private practice in the Reigate / Redhill area of Surrey, I have worked for a number of professional organisations. These include Relate (the UK's Largest Provider Of Relationship Support), and Mind (the mental health charity).

Because I'm a specialist in my areas of expertise, people come to see me from across Surrey, Sussex, London and the South-East. And because I also offer online therapy, I work with people from many different countries.

Individual counselling

We all find life hard to cope with at times.

Whatever you’re experiencing, I can help you make sense of your feelings, and understand yourself and your life better. In time, you will feel more confident and in control, and find a way forward.

I'll support you in working through the issues that are troubling you, for example:

Anxiety, including generalised anixety disorder and health anxiety

Anger

Bereavement and grief

Bullying

Decluttering / hoarding

Depression

Emotional and physical abuse

Low self-confidence and self-esteem

Rape and sexual abuse

Self-harm

Separation and divorce

Stress, including school, university and work-related stress

Trauma

Relationship therapy

Strong, positive relationships contribute to a long, healthy and happy life. But what if things aren’t going so well? Relationship counselling will help you make sense of what’s going on. I'll give you equal time, understanding and attention, and support you through what can be a challenging and emotional process.

People come to me for help with many different relationship problems, including:

Affairs and infidelity

Arguments and conflict

Betrayal or deceit

Children / family

Coping with a crisis

Intimacy

Lost connection
