About me

Welcome and thank you for choosing my profile.

Taking the first step to finding a therapist takes courage, the next step is finding a therapist that you feel comfortable to work with.  My wholehearted belief is that the quality of relationship created between therapist and client is key to a successful outcome. Therefore I would like to tell you a bit about me and the way I work.

I am an experienced therapist offering both Counselling and Psychotherapy in East Sussex/Kent.  I am BACP Accredited and UKATA Diploma qualified. Alongside my private practice, I work in mental health clinical practice both with individual clients as well as facilitating group work.  Additionally I am a school counsellor for a primary school based in Kent.

I have the adaptability to offer work on a short term or long term basis as well as the flexibility to work within a range of difficulties such as anxiety, depression, relationship problems and more.  My aim is to work in a way which is respectful of you and your needs as well as being able to provide you with challenge should you wish it and when you are ready for it.

I offer a confidential, safe and supportive environment in which we can begin to build a trusting relationship. By carefully listening to you, I am able to gain a good understanding of what you would like to achieve and then with your consent, we can work together towards establishing and realising your goals.

"Can't see the wood for the trees".

Sometimes we are not always clear about what it is we are looking for or what exactly is troubling us. Often we find ourselves stuck in the same rut, noticing ourselves repeating certain behaviours in life with the same outcomes and then left wondering, 'how did that happen again?'

Therapy is a unique space in which you can discover what makes you 'tick'. With the opportunity to explore yourself, the relationships in your life and how you interact with others, you will discover how you can release yourself from familiar and perhaps painful patterns. The therapeutic relationship serves to develop self awareness, harness self compassion and build resilience, enabling you to move forward and make choices and decisions about your life.

"The whole is greater than the sum of its parts" - Aristotle

I believe we are not simply defined by a thought, feeling or action alone - in therapy we can learn how our personality is structured. Through understanding and accepting the different aspects of ourselves we can then identify how much positive and negative energy we invest in certain areas of our lives and start to redress any imbalance so that once again we can be whole.

What Next?

I offer an initial 15 minute telephone consultation. This gives us an opportunity to chat and for you to get an idea of what you can expect should you choose me to be your therapist. This time will also give you a chance to ask me any initial questions you may have about me or the way I work.

All individual sessions last 50 minutes,  during our first session I will take some time to conduct a short assessment, this is important and allows me to safely assess that we are suitable to work together and additionally maximises the efficacy of our work.

Training, qualifications & experience

Although my main training has been in Transactional Analysis, I have worked in different settings and alongside others therapists.  This has helped me to have the flexibility to incorporate various approaches in my work.  I can thus incorporate Humanistic, Integrative, Relational and Psycho dynamic approaches  when appropriate to suit individual need.

I am always keen to further my knowledge and enhance my practice and therefore I regularly participate in workshops and further training courses . I am interested in the development of neuroscience and how this can helpfully inform my work.  I also like to use Body psychotherapy and mindfulness techniques to enhance and help my work with clients when appropriate.
