About me

Counselling is a place where we can explore, understand and work together through problems and difficult emotions that you may be struggling with. I aim to provide a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment in which to do this.

Counselling can help with a variety of issues, including:

  • Anxiety, depression and stress
  • Bereavement or loss
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Surviving trauma or abuse
  • Anger

I have trained to work with an integrating method, which allows me to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques to suit your individual needs and circumstances.

When working with children, I will adapt the sessions accordingly, using either a child lead or more structured approach. Play therapy skills may be used, where toys, sand and creative materials help the child to make sense of challenging situations and feelings.

I enjoy working with clients from all walks of life, regardless of religion, cultural background, sexual orientation or gender identity.

I offer daytime and evening sessions at:

- Southcote Proactive Healthcare, Maidstone (https://www.southcote.com/april)

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling with Children and Young People
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
  • Certificate in Counselling Skills

I have worked with adults, young people and children in a variety of organisations, including North Kent MIND, fostering agencies and local schools.

I am committed to undertaking regular supervision and practising within the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) ethical framework.
