Further information

I recognise that meeting a counsellor for the first time can be stressful and aim to provide a friendly, professional atmosphere. The first session involves assessing your current needs and finding out if we could work together to meet these needs. I offer this session at a reduced fee. Subsequent sessions are usually weekly at the same time each week and are charged at £40.

By developing a positive, unconditional relationship in a safe place we can learn to understand ourselves and others more fully. Counselling can provide an empathic, boundaried place to give room for personal development and enhanced well-being.

My background is in Child Protection, Residential Care, Education and Healthcare. I hold an enhanced DBS certificate and am fully insured. I attend regular clinical supervision and training.

I have a Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Membership No. 726357).

I have a private practice in Staplehurst, between Maidstone and Cranbrook. I currently also work in a local Hospice and within Education.
