About me

The way I work

I strongly believe that the relationship between client and counsellor lies at the heart of effective therapy.

l will listen to what you are looking for from counselling and together we will decide what will work best for you. I recognise that you may come to counselling knowing something is wrong but not being entirely sure what that is. I also appreciate that different issues may arise as the counselling unfolds. As such, I do not work to a rigid plan but rather appreciate the need for flexibility.

My counselling

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I suggest a range of approaches depending on your circumstances and needs. For example, using some CBT techniques may be useful in understanding how your thoughts impact upon your behaviours whilst an existential approach may help if you are struggling to find meaning or purpose in your life. During counselling we will talk about your past, present and future but again where we focus will depend upon your needs.

When we first meet

I offer a free initial consultation lasting for an hour which will enable you to understand more regarding my counselling and whether you would like to work with me.

Conditions treated

I will be able to help you with a wide range of conditions and have a particular interest in relationship issues. To that end, I am undertaking additional training in this field with the Grove Practice in London.

Location

My practice is based in a quiet location on the south side of Sevenoaks and there is ample parking space.
