Welcome to my site for Counselling in Woking. I work as an Individual and Couples Counsellor for Woking, Guildford and surrounding areas.
When things do not feel right we need to take time to understand, think and talk things through. For many people this is just too difficult to do with friends and family because they are emotionally involved, perhaps wanting to offer advice you are unsure about. Counselling offers you space and time to consider your situation with a Counsellor who does not know you, and can be objective.
You have a particular and special way of looking at the world and, however you choose to live your life, needs to make sense and fit with that view. My Counselling is very much about working with you personally and with what you bring to sessions so that you can manage your life in a way that works for you. As an Integrative therapist I draw on various Counselling approaches so am able to respond and adapt to what helps you most.
In therapy I see clients from many backgrounds and have worked with relationship issues, depression, loss, anger, anxiety, people suffering abuse or with self-esteem, and addiction problems. As a couple’s therapist, I welcome clients with many kinds of relationships, including same sex, encouraging calm and thoughtful communication between partners.
I want you to experience Counselling as friendly, and helpful from the very first contact with me. As a Counsellor, my aim is to offer a calm place where you feel at ease and safe to talk about whatever concerns you. For some, Counselling is the first experience of being with someone fully interested in them, who takes time to listen, stays with them, respecting their perspectives and decisions.
Please take the time to look at 'How I Work' which will tell you more about Counselling with me.
I offer online as well as face-to-face counselling. (For individual clients, following an initial one hour appointment, I am now offering the option of 30 minute sessions over Zoom.) My rooms are quiet and comfortable and situated on the outskirts of Woking where parking is easy and off-road; if you are looking for Individual Counselling or a Couple's Counsellor in Woking or Guildford please get in touch via 'Contact Me'.
Please note Counselling is not an emergency service. If you need urgent help, call 999, your GP or Samaritans on 116 123.
If you are looking at this page from outside the United Kingdom, www.befrienders.org can give you information about available crisis support where you are.
