About me

I am an integrative counsellor combining cognitive and psychodynamic theory with a person-centered approach. I work in Ashford, Kent, providing short and long term counselling working with individuals, children and young people.

In addition to working in private practise, I work for family matters, a charitable organisation based in Gravesend, which specialises in child sexual abuse, rape and sexual violence.

I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology.

Counselling is a joint venture between two people so it is important you find someone with whom you feel comfortable and safe. Our first session will be an assessment session, to discuss your requirements and decide together if counselling is right for you at this time and more importantly, if we both feel we can work together.
