About me

Being young in 2022 isn't easy, I'm with you.

O   My coursework is just too much.
O   I hate who I am at the moment.
O   The Pandemic ruined everything
O   My loved one is gone.
O   I’m at a new college and I’m scared I can’t make friends.
O   I’m sick of my job.
O   My girlfriend might be cheating.
O   I’m putting on weight.
O   I struggle and don’t know why.
O   I’m having panic attacks.
O   I am depressed

Hi, thanks for checking me out - I’m Drew, I’m a counsellor based in Canterbury. I specialise in treating anxiety and stress.

I’ve been working as therapist for over 6 years now, which includes 4 years working as an NHS Therapist for young people in universities and colleges. I now run my own private practice alongside my NHS work.

As one of the UK’s youngest professional counsellors I can relate to and understand the anxieties and struggles of those our age, and have overcome a lot myself.

“Drew is a great listener and feels like a real person. It’s like talking to a friend”
– Joel, 21, Canterbury

"Before counselling my relationship ended and my esteem was low – but after I could feel great about myself again"
– Daniel, 19, Ashford

I offer a free 15-minute Zoom session to new clients. It’s great way to tell me about your situation, and there’s no commitment for more.

Just drop me a line and we can get that scheduled.

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.
