About me

How counselling can help: We all experience times in our life when we feel 'stuck' or overwhelmed, or lacking in direction or purpose ... and it's at times like these when we might need a little support in facing our challenges and making positive change. As a counsellor my role is to provide a safe, empowering, non-judgemental and empathic space where you can voice your concerns, be truly listened to and understood.

Counselling isn't about giving advice or solutions, it is about empowering you to examine your life, make meaningful choices and invoke your own changes.
I appreciate how the challenges and pressure of life can take their toll on health, relationships and day to day mental and physical well-being. As a qualified integrative counsellor, I combine theoretical knowledge with compassion to find the best way to work with clients holistically, incorporating mind, body and spirit.

Get in touch: making the decision to see a counsellor might seem a big step to take - but it's a positive one. Why not message or call me to find out more about how working together we can explore your situation in a way that facilitates the discovery and development of your inner resources, strengths and potential.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Integrative Counselling (Inter-Psyche Training Institute: part of Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust)

As a fully qualified counsellor, I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework and principles of good practice.

I am an experienced counsellor providing both short-term (6-12 sessions) and open-ended longer term therapy both in-person and online.  I've worked with people from all walks of life and backgrounds who have been experiencing a diverse range of problems.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
