About me

A very warm welcome to Tonbridge Psychotherapy. I truly understand the strength it takes to recognise that something isn’t working in your life (whether it’s your relationship/s, your job, a crossroads you’ve reached, anxiety, panic attacks, depression or a general sense of sadness/something being wrong) and to take this step in looking for someone to help you achieve a resolution. It can be scary to contemplate speaking to someone about your struggles. I offer a warm and welcoming environment and will work with you at whatever pace feels safe and comfortable for you. We will keep reviewing the work together to make sure that you're getting what you need/want from your sessions.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples and groups from my own tranquil garden room in the Slade area of Tonbridge. I am also a fully trained and registered Online and Telephone Counsellor and so can offer sessions to you wherever you are; geography needn't be a limiting factor when you are making your choice of therapist. 

I have worked for ten years as a nurse in both the NHS and Private sector prior to starting my journey to train as a psychotherapist in 2008. I have also worked as an Associate Counsellor at West Kent Mind. I am passionate about the mind/body connection and am a fully qualified yoga teacher, with a special interest in helping clients heal from narcissistic/emotional abuse.

I believe that through the relationship you and I build together, you will heal. Together we can identify your struggles, strengths and goals, building your resilience in order that you feel able to make the changes that you want, to live the life that you want.

I work in a flexible and accommodating way, in order to offer a safe and supportive environment for my clients; I understand the pressure of busy lives and am happy to offer evening, weekend and double-length sessions to suit your lifestyle. My aim is to help psychotherapy become more accessible so that every single person who asks for help can achieve the changes in life that they seek.

I offer Walk and Talk Therapy for clients at their request, where available. As a musician, I understand the healing power of using our inherent creativity to release stress, trauma and anxiety. I believe in the value of working creatively with clients, whether that’s through music, art or physical movement and I can offer creative activities during our work together, if you feel it might be beneficial. 

I am fully insured, DBS checked and am accredited by the BACP and UKATA, abiding by their code of ethical practice and professional standards. I am also registered with the ICO and adhere to their standards of confidentiality regarding client notes.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
