Godalming (GU7), Surrey and Online


I work one-to-one as a psychotherapist/counsellor on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

As a professionally qualified and insured Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, I offer a calm, secure and confidential environment in which to talk. Although I usually offer psychotherapy in person in Godalming, I am currently working online - using Zoom or Skype. Depending on your needs and worries, I offer both long or short term psychotherapy and counselling. I have experience in a variety of different settings using different modalities, both in the UK and internationally.

Although you may be seeking therapy because things are difficult, choosing to look for a therapist or counsellor is a positive step. Counselling or psychotherapy can help you work out what is troubling you. Talking things through has been proven to be helpful for finding ways to improve your experience of your life. It may be that something unexpected has happened in your life, or that things have just piled up over the years and you are feeling overwhelmed and not able to cope. Psychotherapists and counsellors are trained to help think and talk about difficult things and to find ways to understand and work though them.

My experience and skills are in counselling people who struggle with these issues, amongst others:

  • Relationship and communication difficulties
  • Issues relating to sexuality, same gender relationships and identity
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sexual abuse
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Issues confronted in leaving school, starting work, college or university
  • Family issues including parenthood, mothering, birth trauma and divorce
  • Post natal depression
  • Difficult relationships with food and eating
  • Life and work stress

    I work in a garden room in Busbridge in Godalming (GU7), which is easily accessed from Guildford, Cranleigh and Farnham, not far off the A3.

Why choose Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a talking and listening therapy which works with thinking about your problems in the context of your life more broadly. Distress that you feel now may have occurred at other times in your life and may well have a link to those times as well. Psychodynamic psychotherapy aims to help you to understand your current problems better by uncovering the links between past and present experiences and patterns. In this approach your therapist is interested in how you experienced your early years of life, your childhood, what school was like for you, any trauma you might have experienced, relationships you have now and have had in the past and what is going on for you now. The relationship between you and your therapist assists with that process and is an important part of the work you do in therapy. Feelings of frustration, sadness, betrayal, anger, loss, anxiety, depression, a loss of meaning or purpose can be deep-seated. Psychodynamic psychotherapy does not offer quick solutions – instead, it offers you the chance to develop a gradually enhanced understanding of yourself, your relationships with other people and with the world around you.
