"Stepping towards a Healthy Emotional Wellbeing"
Hi, A warm welcome to my profile. I provide a safe and confidential space dependent upon your needs. For example, counselling can be a way of finding alternative coping strategies to deal with problems when our usual ones are not sufficient, and a chance to explore how we repeat patterns of behaviour that may not be helpful to us. Sometimes, when we have difficult worries or problems we can feel angry, upset, confused or feel really down, and talking to a counsellor about these difficulties can bring some relief.
I am an accredited psychotherapeutic therapist and my approach is integrative. This means I believe that no single therapeutic approach is enough to address the individual needs of the client. Therefore, I integrate different therapeutic techniques, as well as working with the dynamics of the counselling relationship.
I have over 12 years experience as a counsellor, and I work with young people and adults, both in my private practice and in education. For 7 years, I offered a confidential counselling service to students and tutors at Plumpton College and more recently worked in primary and secondary school settings for a charity called CXK, as an Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner.
As well as this I see individuals and couples in my private practice and work in Crawley Down Health Centre one day a week and Tunbridge Wells on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I provide a high quality confidential short and long term counselling practice dependent upon your needs.
I am an accredited member of BACP and work in accordance with their code of ethics and practice.

Initially, I will invite you to discuss and assess your situation and what you may hope to gain from the counselling. Together, we can both decide whether counselling is right for you, if we can both work together and agree an appropriate plan of therapy for you.
Counselling sessions are usually weekly and last 50 minutes for individual clients and an 1 hr for couples counselling, at a mutually agreed time.
