Counselling CranleighThere are many reasons you may find yourself here yet what I probably do know is that you are living life in an unfulfilled, discontented and unhappy way and are looking for some support for yourself. Therapy offers this.
I can provide support talking through a whole range of issues such as life-changing events; crippling anxiety/worry; increased alcohol / food consumption; relationship struggles; unpleasant feelings being experienced such as anger and resentment; childhood experiences such as neglect, trauma and shame; fear of abandonment, rejection or helplessness or maybe it is discuss life decisions and talk through current choices. What is important to know is that, as adults, we can choose how we live and live in a more authentic way.
In your initial assessment we will discuss what brings you to counselling, I will ask about your family history and what skills you have utilised until now (as you will have!) and what you are looking to work on / change.
I offer face to face counselling for both individuals and couples in my office in Alfold, near Cranleigh in the 'garden in the room' (see picture).
If you would like to know more or book an appointment, please send me a message.
Online therapyI offer counselling via Zoom, WhatsApp, Signal (and other platforms) and the telephone. I offer individual and relationship / couple / marriage counselling online. Additionally, I offer individual counselling via the phone (personally, I do not believe that couple counselling works this way).
As an online counsellor, my current caseload includes UK, Europe, UAE and many countries worldwide (excluding USA and Canada due to local licencing laws).
Note: I am qualified and registered in the UK and work to UK legislation. If you are in a different country, it will be the country that you are in that governs therapy law. Currently, here in the UK I have a legal responsibility to report terrorism, drug trafficking and money laundering yet legal requirements may differ in the country where you are.

SpecialisationsMy specialisms are relationship, loss, bereavement, and alcohol issues.
I have extensive training in all.
Most common issues I support people with:
Relationships - from the cradle to the grave we are in relationship with ourselves and others and this can be problematic depending on the coping skills we have learnt ( I work with individuals, couples and twos).
Loss / bereavement - we attach to people and things and then, when something happens to that person or thing, we can experience, loss, grief and mourning. Learning about this natural process is so important as, by knowing that everything has a loss cycle, we learn to re-organise quicker rather than getting stuck in the shoc or protest parts of the cycle (Covid showed us this as many got stuck in loss / protest and some have still not moved to the re-organisation stage!).
Alcohol usage is generally the symptom of a much deeper issue as, like food, it can be used to change the way you feel. So, we explore the cycle of addiction. What is important to know here is that the brain is about survival and utilises substances that had you survive which is why, if this is the one thing you want to not do and keep doing, you have lost choice. If you are of the alcoholic type variety, it may be abstinence is the only way forward, again we can discuss this in session without any shame or blame.
I also counsel other issues that are symptoms of how you have learnt to be in the world, i.e. anxiety, not feeling enough, feeling sad or lonely, abuse, attachment issues, perfectionism, trauma, feeling dissatisfied, estrangement, etc.
