About me

I am a fully qualified and very experienced BACP-Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Broadstairs offering therapy to individual adults.  My private practice here follows my work in London helping people overcome difficult and challenging situations.

Whether your concern is recent, long-standing or an isolated event, I offer a confidential and non-judgemental environment where you are free to be yourself and express your genuine thoughts.​​

I tailor my approach to you and the issue at hand. This integrative-style of working celebrates you as a unique individual whilst focusing on those aspects of your life that you feel need attention.​

I work with a wide range of difficulties including struggles with addiction, compulsions, depression, shame, guilt and burnout.

My principal areas of interest are:

  • Relationships --- Issues concerning infidelity, trust and/or behaviour with partners, family or friends. 
  • Anger -- Investigating root causes and establishing coping strategies.
  • Anxiety --- Identifying underlining causes that are preventing you from leading a full and healthy life.
  • Self-Care --- Understanding personal needs and boundaries to improve self-awareness, self-esteem, self-worth and self-respect.
  • Perfectionism -- Examining reasons for obsessive/unrealistic goal setting, procrastination, fear of failure and inability to acknowledge being 'good enough'.

Well-being and happiness are possible. They sometimes just need the right professional support.

I embrace individualism and celebrate diversity.

BACP

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.
