About me

Depression, anxiety, loss and grief, bad habits or addiction, relationship difficulties, or just a sense of life not working for you.  I see people in therapy for a wide range of problems, and work from the premise that we have internal resources to flourish in life - and that these may be blocked in any number of ways.  I believe therapy should help us to identify and take down the barriers that keep us from the life we desire.

Whilst it is not a panacea, nor the only way to resolve personal struggles, therapy does have the capacity to positively change the trajectory of a life. As such, I take seriously the responsibility of working with you, and I am driven to help you find your solutions.

Having spent over twenty years working in the mental health field, I offer professional and discrete counselling and psychotherapy to individuals in Sevenoaks and Rochester. I also provide online video sessions.

Please feel free to contact me, by phone, email or text, to discuss what is troubling you, or to make an appointment.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
