About me

I am an experienced BACP-Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Broadstairs offering confidential online therapy across the UK. My private practice here follows my work in London helping people overcome difficult and challenging situations.

The approach I use is tailored to you and depends on the issue at hand. This style of working together is seen as an important factor for success.

Whether your concern is recent, long-standing or an isolated event, I can offer you a safe space where you can be yourself and express your genuine thoughts.

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

My principal areas of interest are:

Anger --- Identifying root causes and establishing coping strategies.
Anxiety --- Resolving underlining causes that are preventing a healthy life.
Relationships --- Exploring behaviour and entanglement problems with partners, family or friends.
Self-Care --- Understanding personal needs to improve mood, self-esteem and self-worth.
Identity --- Discovering the true you to enhance contentment and vitality.

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

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.
