Welcome to Lark Rise Counselling

Seeking help takes courage and strength

Life can be complicated, we all have ups and downs but sometimes the hard moments become a struggle and difficult to ignore. You may be feeling overwhelmed by difficult emotions, past experiences, relationship issues or life transitions - counselling can help.

As a person-centred counsellor, I provide a supportive and empathic space for you to express yourself freely and gain deeper self-awareness. Therapy is a collaborative relationship, together, we can identify your challenges, gain understanding and work towards an improved sense of well-being.

"When we make space to process our emotions we open ourselves up to growth and healing."

My approach is grounded in the belief that, with support, you have the ability to make meaningful changes that reconnect you with your values and aspirations. I come from a place of respect and empathy, believing that each person has a desire to grow.

Often our coping mechanisms - our defences - are born from self-protection. With curiosity and compassion we can explore the root of these behaviours, how past and present experiences have shaped you.

I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship is a unique connection - where you can truly be yourself, no judgement, no criticism, only understanding and being truly heard.

Fees & availability

A strong therapeutic relationship is key, so finding a counsellor that you feel comfortable with is important. I offer a free 15 minute chat so that we can see if we are the right fit. If we decide to move forward, each session will last for 50 minutes and tends to be at the same time each week.

I offer both short-term work to focus on a particular area or issue and long-term work where we can develop a more in-depth exploration into specific areas of your life or patterns.

Online & In-person sessions are £60, which is payable via bank transfer before the session takes place.

I work Online Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays. In-person sessions take place on Tuesdays only, Nr Guildford.
