Nina Roberts Counsellor in Surbiton, Kingston, Surrey

About Me

My Approach
I offer a sensitive and, at the same time, thoroughly grounded approach which will be specifically tailored to each individual's particular needs.

As my experience comes from the various models of counselling, it allows me to use a flexible approach, rather than being limited by only one.

The initial meeting will determine the focus and time frame for the work - either an agreed number of sessions or open ended.

The safe space provided by therapy will enable you to explore any issues you may bring and help you make sense of your life, relating to your current situation, past issues and hopes for the future. Therapy may then help you to manage problems more effectively and move forward in your life.
