About me

Right now perhaps you feel an increase in anxiety, relationships may be suffering or you may be experiencing bereavement. Whether an existing or new issue, I will listen to your personal story and support your journey towards a brighter future.

How I work

During the COVID crisis I am providing online and telephone counselling. I can help you set up online options if needed. These forms of counselling are long established and you may be surprised at how effective they are. I am now opening up some very early morning and late evening sessions to help fit in with your arrangements.

I strongly believe that the relationship between client and counsellor lies at the heart of effective therapy. No two people are the same and so I will look at your needs as an individual rather than narrowly looking at a condition or just following theory.

l will listen to what you are looking for from counselling and together we will decide what will work best for you. Different issues may arise as the counselling unfolds and therefore I recognise the need to be flexible rather than working to a rigid plan.

My counselling

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that that I can work with more than one approach and will tailor what we do together to your requirements and needs. Counselling may last anything from a few weeks to a number of years and together we will review progress on a regular basis.

I can help you with a wide range of issues from stress and anxiety to bereavement and anger management. Whilst I am qualified to support you with most challenges, if I am not able to I will look to find you someone who can.

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. I realise that you may feel anxious at the start and so I will try my best to put you at ease and make you feel comfortable.

Relationship Therapy

During the current crisis your relationship may have come under strain or perhaps there are longer term issues that you would like to resolve. I can help with the challenges that you are facing whether it be lack of intimacy, poor communications, extra marital affairs or something else. I will work with you to discover the root causes of your difficulties and also provide practical suggestions to help get things back on track or move you forward. I will provide a safe space for each partner to have a voice and be listened to. I welcome both couples and any other relationship groupings.


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

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.
