About me

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work as an integrated counsellor, using skills that suit the individual. I have a special interest in helping people to work on their immediate thoughts, feelings and behaviour and to better understand the way they relate to others. This increased awareness often leads to a better understanding of ourselves and to our life situation.

I have worked in the care industry and have worked as a Civil servant for nearly 20 years. I now work in a private counselling practice and also work with adults and young people at the East Kent Rape Crisis Centre (EKRCC).

I work with clients from diverse backgrounds and differing ages dealing with:

Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Stress, Relationship problems, Sexual Abuse, Rape, Emotional Abuse, Self-esteem, Personal development.

The types of therapy I use:

Integrative, Gestalt, Existentialist, Holistic.

How I deliver therapy: Long term face to face work, Short term face to face work.

I work weekdays and weekends

Individual Counselling:

Individual sessions last for 50 minutes and cost £40.

Understandably taking the first step is often the most difficult one to take. I have found from experience that having a brief chat on the phone often takes away any anxiety you may be feeling about therapy.

This is free of charge.
