About me

I offer a warm, non judgemental approach and a choice of short or long term therapy to fit the needs of each individual client.

My original training in Humanistic theory is still at the core of my work, and my approach is of an Integrative nature which means I draw on different theories and techniques that best fit the needs of each client. I believe that what is most important is the relationship between client and therapist, and it is fundamental to establish a good working alliance. I further believe that the client knows where their problems lie, and I see my role as facilitating their journey by helping them achieve their goals using my knowledge of theory and experience.

I work in a pragmatic manner looking at facts, cause and effect. I find this to be a very effective way of practising, particularly as many clients want to understand why they are the way they are, or behave the way they do. This pragmatism is tempered with kindness and empathy; I never forget that the story being told to me is very personal to my client.

Based in Faversham and Broadstairs, Kent; I am a BACP Registered & Accredited Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist and I abide by their code of ethics; I am also an approved practitioner for Aviva Insurance.

‘100% confidence in Teresa, she has been a wonderful help and inspiration! Thank you!’

‘I have felt understood for the first time in my life. Teresa has given me an awareness of my inner self that I had not been able to recognise before but always knew was there.  I feel more positive for the future which is all thanks to Teresa's professionalism and person. Thank you very much Teresa for opening a door I have avoided walking through for many, many years’

‘This has been a very valuable, life changing experience for me and I am extremely grateful. I cannot praise my Teresa highly enough’

‘I have had counselling before and felt I was judged and not listened to. With Teresa I felt at ease and not judged and she listened to my story from my side’

‘Could not ask for better treatment. Teresa always showed empathy, professionalism and competence.  I feel that, without Teresa's help in guiding me to an understanding of my problems, I would have gotten worse.  I can wholeheartedly praise Teresa for her help’

‘I was treated with the utmost respect and felt that Teresa was definitely able to help me through my problems with great care and understanding’

‘I have felt listened to and very supported throughout the sessions I have had and am grateful to have had a very experienced counsellor in Teresa...Thank you’
