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.

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

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).
