About me

I am a member of the NCPS, and qualified at L5 as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. My previous working background has been with national charities supporting victims of crime, and a few years as a self employed upholsterer and leather restorer, so I have a wide variety of experience working directly with people and providing the service and support they are looking for and need.

Currently I work with a local charity, providing trauma counselling to victims of all and any crime in Kent and Medway. I was fortunate to complete my placement there, and still work with them today. In my private practice, I see clients face to face and 1-2-1, and also offer telephone and online counselling. I aim to create a safe, welcoming and professional space, in a comfortable and quiet location, and to support my clients to find their way to lasting and positive change.
