About me

Hi and welcome to my profile.

I am a fully-qualified and experienced BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) psychotherapeutic counsellor in Maidstone. I provide counselling, psychotherapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) for individuals and organisations. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental relationship in which you can explore personal or difficult issues that may be causing you distress.

My professionally accredited training and experience enables me to work with clients on a short-term focused or goal-orientated basis, as well as an open-ended longer term basis to enable us to explore personal challenges at a deeper level. It is so important for you to have a robust connection with your counsellor and that is why we meet for an initial assessment so that you can make sure you feel comfortable working with me. Not only can we talk about what is troubling you, but also what may be blocking progression and any feelings about personal change. Counselling is a fluid process and can be challenging at times but you will find the best results through your commitment and engagement.

If you are experiencing distress with one particular issue or a combination of different issues, please contact me to discuss how counselling, psychotherapy or EMDR can help You.


As an alternative to face-to-face therapy, I can provide video counselling. This is secure and is a choice clients can make if it is more convenient for them, particularly in light of the current situation with COVID-19. The secure video-meeting platform called Zoom is GDPR compliant and is encrypted so you can be rest assured about the security and privacy of the sessions. I do provide guidelines also to clients on conducting their sessions this way so all information you need will be sent to you..
