Everyone faces challenges in life and we all deal with them differently. One option is to choose counselling, which has worked for me and many others and can work for you. It is your time to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and find the best way to tackle your obstacles and as your counsellor I can work with you in an approach that best suits you. It’s important to choose the right counsellor so I will endeavour to be as transparent as possible in how my I can help you.
Your first session will include an assessment whereby I can gain more information about you, your life and how counselling can help you to get to where you want to be. If we agree my service can help you, I can then offer short to long term counselling, and have found it can be helpful to regularly review progress as the counselling continues.
I’ve successfully worked with children and adults of all ages, tackling a range of issues that we either face as part of life or due to unfortunate circumstances. My experience spans across private, public and not for profit sectors for organisations like Mid Kent Mind, Samaritans and NHS.

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.
