About me

Seeking counselling can be both a relief and a daunting prospect. You may, for example, be experiencing a particularly difficult life event, persistent emotional difficulties or a lack of direction. Allowing yourself the time to explore your issue with a fully trained, empathic therapist can help you discover the route back to where you want to be.

​During the therapeutic process my focus is to create a warm and relaxed relationship - I will be there listening empathically and non-judgmentally to you. I have a down to earth character and am not averse to encouraging humour in the counselling process when suitable!

​Not only am I trained in several counselling theory models, I also have experienced my own personal fears and difficulties, which, I believe, allows me to understand my clients even more acutely.

I ensure that our sessions are safe, secure and confidential. Working closely together we will develop a strong therapeutic relationship within which we will be able to explore your experiences, feelings and behaviours.

Collaboratively we will devise a realistic contract for us to follow, which will be driven by your needs and wishes of how you would like to make changes in your life.

As well as working face to face I also offer online counselling to all my clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified humanistic counsellor in practice in Tunbridge Wells and Crowborough. As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, BACP, I follow their ethical framework. I am fully insured.

I work in private practice mainly at the Beacon NHS Medical Practice in Crowborough, where for the past five years GPs have referred patients to me who are experiencing a variety of difficulties.

For thirty years I have worked with teenagers with many diverse issues in my role as a secondary school teacher. I presently spend part of my week supporting students during private tuition after school.

My specialist area is anxiety, however I have also successfully worked with those experiencing a variety of difficulties.

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.
