About me

I have over twenty years experience, ten of those years as working as Lead Therapist within a college and now focus on my growing private practice in Kings Hill, West Malling.

I work with young people and adults who work with me to overcome a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, childhood and transition difficulties, self esteem, anger, stress, gender, relationship, work related problems, bereavement and loss.

I also have experience of working with young people and adults who are on the autistic spectrum.

I work on a one-to-one basis offering long-term and short-term counselling and can offer evening appointments and some daytime appointments are available. My practice is run from a discreet confidential setting with easy access and free parking.

I am a registered BUPA healthcare professional which enables you to use your policy allowance for our therapy sessions.

In addition to this I offer clinical supervision and training to Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Health related workers.

I supervise counsellors and psychotherapists both in training and also those that are qualified. I have experience of working as a lecturer and tutor on training courses. I ensure that I keep up to date with any changes in the industry and ensure my continual professional development by attending regular courses and conferences around the world.I originally qualified as a counsellor and extended my training to become an integrative psychotherapist with an MA from the Institute of Arts and Therapy in Education, London.

An integrative therapist works with a range of theoretical concepts tailored to meet the needs of the client including CBT, in the creative Humanistic approach.

I run Creative Arts Workshops on a regular basis within the communities I work to support well being and improve mental health.
