About me

I am a qualified counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the professional body that regulates counselling in the UK. I also hold a DBS certificate.

My background in working for organisations across London and Kent has given me a particular understanding of the emotional challenges that many of us face including, depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, bereavement, relationship and family issues. I believe that evidence based psychological therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) along with an integrative counselling approach allows flexibility in dealing with each individual’s needs. This, combined with a safe and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship is key for the process of change and recovery.

I currently work in the private and voluntary sector across North Kent and continue to work for the well-regarded mental health charity, North Kent MIND. I have also worked with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development for employment related matters and understand the complex emotional issues arising from challenges such as redundancy, returning to work following a long break or bereavement, feeling overwhelmed with life’s demands and many other concerns. I work with adults and can offer long term and short term counselling in most aspects of personal therapy.

I adhere to the BACP ethical framework which includes the regular supervision of my practice. I am passionate about my work and am committed to making a difference to the lives of my clients. I provide a calm, safe and confidential space here in our therapy rooms in Rochester.
