About me

I am currently offering internet sessions during this challenging time so clients can access counselling and psychotherapy. Please get in touch for an initial phone session and to discuss online therapy.

Life can throw varied challenges our way and Counselling can be a great support in processing emotions and unravelling confused thinking. I know that having a safe, compassionate, non judgemental space to talk things through can be really valuable and I am really passionate at supporting people to feel better in themselves. I strongly believe in empowerment and helping people to become the best they can so they can cope better with whatever comes their way.

About me and my Practice

I’m an Integrative Therapist which means I use different approaches within my Counselling work these include Person Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Gestalt. I also use some TA and Mindfulness with clients and enjoy being creative and can incorporate art therapy and sand play therapy. My client’s have commented on my warm, empathic style where they feel comfortable to talk about anything without judgement.

I have considerable experience working with young people and adults across a wide range of issues which include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, addiction, low self esteem, eating disorders, grief, anger and abuse. I trained to be a Counsellor in a secondary school and then went on to work with adults of all ages as part of a community project. I now work for Circles South East and in private practise.

I am 41 years old and have a family, I love to be in the outdoors, meditate and to travel. I’ve visited a Tibetan Monastery in Kathmandu and am influenced by Buddhism.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
