About me

Welcome! I am an HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist and have been working as a therapist since 1995. I offer a range of ways to help you through a difficult time, tackle a chronic problem or help you realise your potential. I feel that counselling/psychotherapy shouldn't be intimidating but should help you explore and cope with the issues in your life.

I have extensive experience of working with depression, anxiety, relationships and associated issues including loss, anger, and pain amongst others. I increasingly use Mindfulness in my sessions and run a full 8 week course at various points in the year. I have recently been training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a logical extension of CBT particularly focussed on helping you find out what you would like from a rich and fulfilling life - a harder question than it sounds!

I am a BUPA registered mental health therapist and I am also recognised by AXA PPP, Aviva, BUPA, Cigna, PruHealth and WPA.

My Hawkhurst practice is in a purpose built office at my home, with street parking.

Please see my website for more information about how I work.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.


Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Child and Family issues, particularly parenting issues and loss.  Chronic illness issues and terminal illness. Complex trauma.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
