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, worked as a Civil servant for nearly 20 years, I now work in a private counselling practice and work with adults at the East Kent Rape Crisis Centre (EKRCC) with adults and young people who have suffered trauma and struggle with coming to terms with situations which can include shame, guilt, lack of self-worth, blame and anxiety.

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.
