About me

I AM OFFERING COUNSELLING SESSIONS  face to face, phone & zoom sessions.

Let me tell you a little about how i work. I provide a safe and confidential space that allows my clients to know that i am right there with them. I am empathetic and non-judgemental with alI of my clients, no matter what they share with me. I practice person-centred and psychodynamic theory in my counselling. Although i like to help my client stick with the situation that is happening to them right now, sometimes it is important to see how my client has coped with similar circumstances in the past to find coping strategies and to gain a greater understanding of my clients.

I believe that counselling is a purposeful relationship in which one person supports another to help themselves. It is an activity of listening and responding which encourages exploration of thoughts, feelings and behaviour in order to reach a clearer self understanding.

I have been a volunteer Bereavement Counsellor at the Wisdom Hospice in Rochester for two years and find it so rewarding. I offer a safe and comfortable environment so my clients can explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions about any situation that they would like to share. I am a great listener and I find helping to support my clients whilst they go through difficult situations within their life so rewarding.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my Therapeutic Counselling Diploma at Bromley College in June 2016. I completed my level 2, level 3 at Rochester Adult Education Centre over the last four years. I also have a level 4 Diploma in Psychology. I have work as a volunteer counsellor at the Wisdom Hospice in Rochester as a bereavement counsellor and in the past did a placement at Turning Point as a drug and alcohol misuse counsellor.

Further information

I would really like to help support you through your crisis. I am a fairly newly qualified counsellor but I would love to support you in any way that I can. Counselling is a purposeful relationship in which one person supports another to help themselves. It is an activity of listening and responding which encourages exploration of thoughts, feelings and behaviour in order to reach a clearer self understanding. This process can enable clients to find and use their strengths so that they can more effectively manage their lives.

I am a female living in Walderslade. I offering my clients counselling from my own home so it is very comfortable and safe. Please give me a call and we can discuss how i can best support you through this troubled time.

Accessibility

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.
