Hello, I am a highly qualified, experienced counsellor/psychotherapist based in Farnham. I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists which means I follow their ethical code and regularly update my knowledge.
I provide a supportive, nonjudgemental and confidential environment in which you can talk about anything. No one approach is suitable for everybody so as I get to understand your situation I tailor the approach to you.
I work with adults on an individual basis (not couples or groups) from my home-based practice in the South of Farnham. As part of the first session I would be checking I have the right expertise to work with you. It is also an opportunity for you to ensure that you feel comfortable with me and to ask any questions you have about counselling. Once we are both happy for you to proceed we would book future appointments. My fee is £50 per session payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
You may be feeling down, depressed, worthless and lacking the energy or motivation to do anything. You may or may not be aware of what has led to you feeling like this. You may have been diagnosed with depression by your GP and possibly prescribed anti-depressants. I work in a variety of ways to help you understand and resolve whatever underlies your depression.
Problems with friends, colleagues or a partner can cause great misery and even lead to depression. I would work with you to understand what is happening in problematic relationships and help you find strategies for managing them.
Sometimes we are aware that there is something in our life that we should change but it feels too difficult. It might be a change we need to make for our health, or it might be a relationship or job we are not sure about. I can work with you to clarify the options and help you identify ways to reach your goals.
