About me

An experienced counsellor, I offer confidential support to individuals, couples, children and families on a wide range of issues.

Your initial consultation will be free. Deciding whether to have counselling and finding the right counsellor for you are both very important decisions. If you are unsure about either of these, I offer a free informal 30 minute meeting where you can find out whether you are comfortable working with me, and I can make sure that I am the best person to help you with your difficulties.

Counselling is suitable for a wide range of problems, and you will find much more information about the services I offer from my website - details above.

My practice is in a safe, tranquil and confidential setting in Tunbridge Wells. It is easily reached by both road and public transport and has convenient free parking.

I also offer online sessions via Zoom.

You are welcome to contact me in confidence by telephone, email or through my website if you would like to make an appointment or have any questions about how counselling or coaching can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with an accredited Diploma in Counselling, and have been in practice since 2006.

I opened my private practice in 2010, offering both short-term and long-term counselling for adult individuals, couples, adolescents and children, and solution-focussed parenting skills coaching.

From 2004-10 I worked as a counsellor with a specialist organisation, supporting families in a range of clinics and schools in Kent. As a senior practitioner I provided counselling to children, teenagers and adults, many with severe and complex difficulties.

Member organisations


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.
