I am an approachable and experienced counsellor based in East Kent, offering personal counselling or group therapy.
I believe that being flexible and approachable is key to the counselling relationship, therefore I can shape sessions to suit you and work with the issues you’d like to explore.
For over twenty years I have been supporting people in navigating the complexities life can bring, from everyday stresses and tensions to (amongst others) the traumas of loss, abuse or family breakdown.
Counselling can help you make sense of life, plot a chart through difficulties you are facing, or empower you to gain the courage to make changes. I have had the opportunity to work with many people in these situations, and have seen the difference that can come through counselling.
Taking the first step in approaching a counsellor can be daunting, I know. Therefore please feel free to email me, call or visit my website for more information. If it would help, we can arrange a initial informal half hour session to see if counselling is the right thing for you.
