About me

I am a professional, experienced psychotherapist and counsellor and work from a central and secure Tunbridge Wells location. I work with individuals, teenagers and couples and specialise in trauma, anxiety & grief therapy.

I help people who are very stressed and anxious to manage their symptoms by exploring both the root causes of these anxious feelings as well as the elements which are sustaining them.

I also help people heal from horrible experiences such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, PTSD, car accidents and so on. In addition I help those who've experienced terrible losses to heal & move forward.

For couples, I offer an unbiased, supportive, non-judgemental and entirely confidential way to understand the key issues in their relationship. I do not take sides but work with both parties to help each identify how they are thinking and feeling in order to discover which decisions they want to make for the future. I help couples develop skills in order communicate clearly with each other and support them in working towards the best possible outcomes for each person.

I am a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) and UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis) and European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA). I work in accordance with the Codes of Ethics and Professional Practice of these professional bodies.

How I work

Finding a therapist that is right for you is a very personal decision. I believe that positive therapeutic outcomes are primarily built upon the quality of relationship between therapist and client so it is important that you feel like you can have a good working relationship with whoever you choose to be your therapist.

My therapeutic background is in Transactional Analysis (TA), although I also incorporate some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques into my work where appropriate. Transactional Analysis centres on the roles you use to communicate with yourself and others and offers tools to support you in making life changes.

Typically I work weekly with individual clients and fortnightly with couples until you reach your goal. Therapy sessions last for 50 minutes for individuals and 75 minutes for couples.

I operate an online booking system which means that you will receive automated email and/or SMS appointment reminders for your therapy sessions if you would like them.

I offer a FREE initial 15 minute telephone consultation - please feel free to call me on 07847 573533 to arrange an appointment or book online via my website

Please feel free contact me with any questions and I will be happy to answer them.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in TA Practice (Psychotherapy) and am a Registered Member of both the BACP and UKATA. My theoretical framework is humanistic and integrative with Transactional Analysis as my prime theoretical model.

My experience includes working with couples, adults and teenagers in both private practice and voluntary settings, covering a broad range of issues.

In addition to my 4 year Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, I have additional specialised training in Trauma and Recovery, Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement and Chronic Illness, Attachment Disorders and Relationship Difficulties.

I have extensive experience of working;

  • In both voluntary and private practice settings working with a wide variety of men, women, teenagers and couples.
  • With traumatised individuals to help them heal from horrific experiences.
  • In both a hospice and cancer drop-in centre working with individuals and their families suffering from chronic illness.
  • With bereaved individuals who have experienced terrible losses.
  • With couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties and would like to find a way forward.
  • With parents and teachers at schools in the Medway area focused on supporting troubled young people; helping them to shed the expectations of others and make their own decisions with confidence and clarity.
