About me

I am a qualified counsellor (Dip. Couns.) and a Registered Member MBACP (Registration no. 100054).

Perhaps you are unhappy, feeling you are lacking joy or stability in your life?  Maybe you are feeling anxious, stressed, upset, depressed or overwhelmed?  I have a warm and adaptable approach, using an integrative framework to best help you.

I offer a safe place in which you can open up and feel you are accepted, heard and understood.  I have access to room in the centre of Sittingbourne, just a few minutes' walk from the train station.  This venue is wheelchair-accessible, with a pay-and-display car parks and disabled spaces within 100 yards of the entrance. I also work from a ground floor therapy space in my home, with parking on-street or on a driveway, about 1.5 miles from the town centre.

I can be reached by email or phone. If you phone, I may not be able to answer your call immediately - so please leave a voicemail message if you would like me to call you back. Out of consideration for your privacy, I cannot call back if you do not leave a voicemail or text message asking me to. Please ensure you have said your phone number when leaving a voicemail if you would like me to call you. My office hours are given on my website.

I have experience in helping in a number of areas, for example:

  • Anxiety (particularly general anxiety disorder and social anxiety)
  • Isolation
  • Lack of confidence
  • Anger
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Stress
  • Family breakdown / family issues
  • Bullying
  • Self image / body image
  • Self esteem

I am also particularly interested in working with people with disabilities - especially "invisible" disabilities such as fibromyalgia, CFS/ME and EDS.
