About me

I have embarked on a career in talking therapies for the last 12 years where I have gained extensive experience in a variety of therapeutic settings including mental health, the criminal justice system, addictions and primary care.

I am dedicated to running a private practice in Ashford and I am also an NHS counsellor in the Shepway and Ashford areas.

My approach is client-centred and outcome-focused. I do not view counselling as a strict adherence to one orientation but an organic and collaborative process which needs to complement the whole person. I draw on a wide range of practices to support your diverse needs while respecting your pace and safety. I also have specialist skills in addictions and emotional management.

I facilitate either very specific outcomes or ones that are more open ended and wider ranging.
