About me

I offer Counselling at a private clinic in Faversham Kent. Having experienced difficulties in the past I sought counselling and found the experience really helped me. At the time although I was 'surviving' I was struggling and kept my feelings hidden. I found the experience of counselling both challenging and rewarding. It helped me understand and accept things, this, in turn, helped me move on.

Years later I trained as a counsellor and have found working alongside clients not only rewarding but also a privilege.  

Abbey Place Clinic is a purpose built clinic set in a beautifully converted chapel in a discreet location within walking distance of Faversham town centre, in Kent.

The Clinic is a few minutes drive from Junction 6 of the M2.  Lots of nearby parking within a few minutes walk. Easy access for clients from East Kent including Whitstable, Sittingbourne, Canterbury, Herne Bay, Medway, Thanet, and Dover.

Please see my website for further details about the services I offer. I specialise in relation difficulties and anxieties. Whether you are feeling overcome due to anxiety, feelings of sadness or difficulties i your relationships, counselling can help you move past these issues and live a happier life.

I also enjoy working with other aspects that can act as blocks to allowing ourselves to move forward in out lives.
