Please note: due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic I have suspended my in-person therapy sessions, with the exception of Walk-and-Talk. I am offering online psychotherapy using Zoom or Skype and am a fully trained Online and Telephone Psychotherapist.
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 or a general sense of something being wrong) and to take this step in looking for someone to help you achieve a resolution.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples and groups from my own tranquil garden room in the Slade area of Tonbridge.
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 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 work with clients experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties, including:
- Eating Disorders
- Relationship difficulties
- Childhood issues
- Low self-esteem
- Grief and bereavement
- Work issues
- Those people looking to achieve a greater sense of self-awareness
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.
