About me


Are you feeling angry, anxious, overwhelmed or suffering from low mood?

Has something recently happened to you that you need to talk about with someone who won’t judge but who can help you make sense of things?

Perhaps you’ve had a traumatic or difficult experience that you need to talk over?

Maybe you wake up each day feeling unfulfilled and have a sense that there must be more to life than this?

It may be that you are experiencing something new, such as parenthood, which is bringing up uncomfortable memories of your past?

Whatever your presenting concern, I provide a confidential, safe space for you to reflect on your goals and explore areas that you want to address to move forward in life in a more fulfilling way. Either you can come and see me in my consulting room in Langton Green, just outside of Tunbridge Wells, or you may prefer to access counselling with me via webcam, or indeed a combination of the two depending on your circumstances.

I am experienced in dealing with anxiety and depression, which may be a product of unresolved issues in the past, or triggered by more recent experiences such as bereavement, change of career or relationship breakdown. Counselling provides a valuable opportunity to talk and reflect on these issues.

Research has shown that the relationship between the counsellor and client is one of the most important factors in successful counselling, I therefore offer a free initial session for us to meet and discuss your needs and expectations, and during this time we can decide together the best way forward.

Member organisations


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.

Additional information

Initial 30 minute consultation sessions via webcam are free – further sessions also last for 50 minutes and are charged at £40 per session.

I have some lower cost places available, please contact me to discuss this and to arrange your free initial consultation.

*** I am currently offering 30 minute sessions via webcam to make this type of support more accessible to those that struggle to find 50 minutes with other family members at home ***

For some a brief course of counselling to reflect on a specific issue is enough to start with (anywhere from 6-12 sessions), while others may want to explore their feelings, thoughts and behaviour patterns in more depth, in which case I can offer open ended counselling. We can discuss your individual requirements and any concerns during the consultation session.
