How do you choose a counsellor? Check experience, qualifications, if they had their own therapy during training, are they registered with a recognised Authority and do they keep updated with the latest counselling changes. Then meet with them and decide if you can work with them - if you feel understood and potentially could trust them and the counsellor is in your corner - then you have made a good choice.
I have been working for 12 years in the counselling arena. With experience and qualifications of working with individuals, couples, children and adolescents. I am an Accredited Counsellor, Supervisor and Trainer.
All initial sessions are free whether I am meeting an individual, a couple or the parent/guardian of a child who may require counselling. During this session we can discuss what brings you to counselling at this time - and what your thoughts on the outcome of counselling are. I will also discuss the practicalities of the sessions. This meeting gives us an opportunity to see if we can work together.
Please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0775 316 7194
I work with adults, couples, children and young people - helping to raise awareness and understanding, while offering a supportive environment. By working at your pace with a strong therapeuitc framework, together we can work towards you making changes in your life and/or help you understand yourself more. I am here to listen to your story and work with you to help you look at the choices you have.
When you read information published by counsellors - I imagine that it becomes difficult to separate us from each other and make a choice. What makes me different? I have had several professions - working as a teacher, a police officer and for over 13 years working in Public Relations at a senior level with blue chip companies - before re-training as a counsellor. I have specialist qualifications and/or experience in counselling children and young people as well as couples and supervision and now in EMDR.

Since qualifying I have continued to develop my experience and have undertaken several training courses to support my work, including, more recently a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy training model. I have a thriving private practice, counselling adults, children, teenagers and couples as well as experience working with children in schools in the Kent area and in GP practices.
