About Mandy

BABCP Accredited

Bespoke Mental Health Service/ Counsellor/Mental Health Practitioner

Cognitive Behavioural Therapist – Bramley, Guildford in Surrey

Hi, my name is Mandy. I have come a long way since my teens/twenties when I was depressed, emotionally ‘all-over-the-place’ and very insecure. I wish I could say I never feel insecure or experience self doubt anymore but at least I am a vastly improved version of my younger self in terms of self awareness, mental resilience and knowing what makes me happy (most of the time).

This blog is all about the lessons I have learned along the way- personally and professionally, the mistakes I’ve made and the trial and error process of life. Learning all the time!

A tricky childhood and some challenging health issues issues along the way have given me a deeper perspective on life. Being so aware of how easily life can end, has motivated me to be more present in my life and to take life less seriously.

What is cognitive behavioural therapy?

I believe that my upbringing (which was tough), depression and health issues have been partly responsible for my success in counselling others. Dealing with trauma and successfully navigating life’s challenges has definitely helped me to be more empathic towards others. I use a mixture of psycho-dynamic counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy as well as my own personal blend of compassion, personal life experience and empathy.

I also offer a bespoke mental health service to those requiring therapy in the privacy of their own homes. I am also able to make referrals where necessary and provides comprehensive support for those seeking help on issues such as: Anxiety such as social anxiety, health anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder), addiction, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and psychosis.

I run my own private practice in Bramley, near Guildford Surrey and also ran clinics for the National Health Service twice weekly until December 2017 at: Mind Matters – Walton on Thames (Surrey and Borders NHS).


Currently I work part-time for iTalk (NHS) in Alton:  https://www.italk.org.uk/

  • Mandy,
    It’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is Kyle. I am from America, but one of your blog posts ran across on being approachable. I really enjoyed it and left a comment on the page =) I do have one question. I was wondering how to best share your content? I have a few friends who might benefit from it, but I am not sure how to get it to them.

I always make sure to write posts in the future on subjects readers have requested. Mandy X

      • Mandy,
        Thanks for the reply! I was wondering if you have any articles on achievement and success? Like what does it mean to achieve and what does it have to do with success? I think that would be a really cool topic. If you need any help digging further, or making it specific, let me know. I would love to help in anyway possible.

    Good morning Mandy,

    Just at the start of a new chapter of a journey of recovery. A publisher picked up my book – link above and there’s a web site in development. I see that there are almost no male survivors counselling around my area of West Sussex.

    The Chichester Life Centre offers an umbrella for Christian counsellors, do you know any other organisations that offer support and peer-to-peer accountability?

    Kind regards

    • Hi Karl,
      Well done on getting your book published – that’s brilliant! You could try the National Counselling Society for peer to peer supervision/accountability or contact the BACP and they might be able to provide info as well.
      Kind regards
      Mandy X
