About me

We all experience many and varied difficult challenges in our lives.

I invite you to undertake long term or short-term counselling with me in order to explore your challenging life events. 

I am a qualified counsellor with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and I have post-qualifying experience in community and hospice settings.

It was whilst completing my training in a hospice setting that I developed a particular interest in loss and bereavement. 

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and have a Private Practice in Maidstone Kent.

Please contact me so we can have a conversation about what your needs might be and discuss any questions that you may have.

Member organisations


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.
