About me

I am an experienced, integrative counsellor working in private practice and also for a local charity and NHS service. I offer both individual and couple counselling.

As an integrative counsellor I use a mix of Person centred, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis theories and therefore can adapt to your needs. I am warm, approachable, non-judgemental and boundaried and all contact is strictly confidential.

Counselling relies on the therapeutic relationship and I provide a safe, confidential space where we can build a good working relationship enabling you to explore past, present and future issues, experiences and worries. The space allows you to look at difficult feelings and emotions with a non-judgemental listener.

I have completed specific rape and sexual abuse training with East Kent Rape line in Canterbury. I have a lot of experience working with women who have experienced sexual trauma and/or physical and/or emotional abuse. I have specific knowledge and experience of working with clients,both male and female, who have been or still are in psychologically abusive/narcissistic relationships.

Please see my website for more information and I look forward to hearing from you.
