Counselling is a place where we can explore, understand and work together through problems and difficult emotions that you may be struggling with. I aim to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which to do this.
I have trained to work with an integrating method, which allows me to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to suit individual needs and personal circumstance.
Counselling can help with a variety of issues, including:
- Anxiety, depression and stress
- Bereavement or loss
- Low self-esteem
- Relationship difficulties
- Surviving trauma or abuse
I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, regardless of religion, cultural background, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Post Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- Certificate in Counselling Skills
I have worked with adults, young people and children in a variety of organisations, including North Kent MIND and local schools.
I am committed to undertaking regular supervision and practising within the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ethical framework.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Anger management
- Asperger's syndrome
- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Gender dysphoria
- Hearing voices
- Learning difficulties
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Passive aggressive behaviour
- Personality disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
It is important that you find a counsellor you feel you can work with. This is why I offer a £10 50 minute initial session, for us to meet face-to-face and for you to be able to ask any questions.
In this time I will also ask questions to gain background information about your situation and to ensure I am the best counsellor for you to work with.
£10 for 50 minute initial session
£30 thereafter per 50 minute session
£25 for students or trainee counsellors
