About me

I am an experienced counsellor working with adults and teenagers. I see clients in Tonbridge (Tues, Wed, Thurs) and Bearsted, Maidstone (Mon, Tues), hour long appointments in the day or early evening. There is parking at both locations and they are walking distance from stations. I offer an initial session for 30 mins free of charge and then all subsequent sessions are £40.

Depression, anxiety, work, sadness, family, relationships, health, childhood, low self-esteem, low confidence, anger, abuse, stress, life in general - all reasons that have brought people to see me. Some things are obvious and known about by clients, some are not known or hidden.

The thought of counselling, of opening up to a stranger can be scary and making that call or sending that email can be really hard. Once you've taken that step you will be in a supportive therapeutic relationship. As counsellor I create a safe, non-judgemental, caring relationship in which you can explore what you feel you need to. I will meander gently with you, working in the here and now, or helping to understand what happened in the past. It might be emotional and challenging at times, but you set the speed and direction. Throughout this you will explore and understand any negative beliefs, damaging thoughts or emotional issues. You will gain self awareness and be empowered in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work under the BACP Ethical Framework code of ethics.

I was trained integratively which means I am able to draw on different theoretical approaches depending on the presenting issues. The approaches I use are person-centred/humanistic, psychodynamic and CBT.

Training:

Diploma in Integrative Counselling at Interpsyche, Dartford - NHS based course.
Certificate in Counselling Skills with CPCAB, Kent Adult Education


My experience covers a wide range of issues over differing time periods:
NHS with adults of all ages and backgrounds in GP surgeries.
Young adults and teenagers in a college environment providing face to face therapy.
Adults in a private setting.
