About me

I appreciate it's not easy to reach out to a stranger, particularly when you’re struggling, so you can simply text "Therapy" to 07908 722459. I aim to respond within in 24 hours (Monday to Friday). We can then arrange an initial consultation, either in person or by phone/ video call. 

It's easy to get stuck in a rut unable to find a way out, particularly when you feel you're dealing with it on your own. We aren't born with depression, anxiety, or low self esteem. We aren't born with compulsive or unhealthy thoughts and behaviours, and we aren't born feeling suicidal. They are the symptoms of how something is making us feel, how we've learned to cope, or what we think is our only option to relieve the pain we feel. 

Talking to a trained therapist in an environment that promotes your sense of safety and empowerment can help you explore your life and make sense of how you got to where you are, so you can start living and thriving instead of existing and surviving. 

As a qualified, registered therapist my practice centres around building an environment which fosters your sense empowerment, and an experience where you feel supported in what can at times be a difficult process. I work collaboratively with you to help you better understand yourself, your history, and your feelings with the emphasis that you are always in control.

Clients come to see me for many reasons, some of which are  childhood abuse and neglect, bullying, dealing with toxic work environments, dysfunctional families, shame, self image, self esteem, compulsive thoughts and behaviours, suicidal thoughts, relationship issues, traumatic events, imposter syndrome, self sabotage, and life crisis. 

I also have extensive experience working with those planning for retirement and retired people. 

I am based in Shadoxhurst and have parking available. I also offer online sessions via Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp video. 

My practice is set in 6.5 acres of private gardens and woodland where I also offer outdoor therapy. Whether it’s sitting in a quiet corner of the gardens or walking amongst the trees, getting outside and being close to nature can have beneficial effects on our mental health. 

I am a registered member of the BACP (member number 384703), and I'm fully insured. I'm also fully vaccinated for Covid 19, maintain social distancing wherever possible, and perform regular lateral flow tests. 

If you would like any further information, or to arrange a free twenty minute initial meeting, either in person, via phone, or video call, simply text "Therapy" to 07908722459.

Best wishes


Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the BACP, having studied at Inter-Psyche Training Institute.

My practice is informed by my integrative training using humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive models to work with the past and present, and how they influence our concept of who we are.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
