I work with adults and teenagers in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas. My style of counselling is built using the foundation of the Humanistic approach. This uses my genuine, empathic, non-judgemental qualities to create a secure, supportive relationship with my clients. Within this safe framework, I am able to assist my clients in working through painful emotions, anxious or destructive behaviours, inner child healing, survival patterns and fears that cause blocks that keep us from living & experiencing life in a way that allows the happiness you deserve.
My aim is to support my clients in finding their own inner resources in the process of healing and positive change.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
