I am a qualified, experienced counsellor/psychotherapist MBACP(Accred) offering counselling and psychotherapy in central Tunbridge Wells.
Counselling provides an opportunity for an individual to progress towards a more satisfying and resourceful way of living. It opens the door to understanding personal, emotional problems and conflicts.
Talking through problems that are deeply personal and troubling is often difficult to do. As a trained and experienced counsellor I will listen to you with complete confidentiality and without judgement, so that you are able to explore whatever is on your mind without inhibition.
My aim is to provide sensitivity and warmth in a safe and caring environment. My approach is based on the Integrative model in which I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy where appropriate.
I work with men, women, couples and adolescents.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
