About me

Hello.

Thank you for stopping to read about my therapy practice.

I became a registered, Accredited Member of the BACP in 2016.

I have specialised in (childhood) sexual abuse counselling for long over a decade now.

I find that my integrative model of counselling (person-centred, CBT, Transactional Analysis and Inner-Child therapy; but flexible to your needs) works well, as so many survivors are searching for empowerment and autonomy: freedoms that they have been denied.

I am also experienced in specialist alcohol counselling, play therapy and generic counselling.

I work from different venues in Bexleyheath (DA6 7AU), Gillingham (ME7 4LA), Gravesend (DA11 0PA) and Maidstone (ME14 1HH), but I am also happy to provide counselling from your home.

Feel free to phone or send me a message via this page to arrange an initial appointment.

You will be greeted with empathy and kindness in a space free from judgement.

I am ready to hear you; to help you feel whole again.
