About me

I am qualified and experienced Counsellor. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I am based in Canterbury. I have 10 years of experience and I work with adults of all ages, I also have skills and qualities helpful in supporting younger people, particularly students at university and in higher education colleges.

I have a lot of experience in working with panic attacks, trauma, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues, post-natal depression and low self esteem.

It can feel like a big step just thinking about having counselling; and you may be feeling anxious and apprehensive, I would like to offer you a safe place where you can begin to express your thoughts and feelings.

It can be a tremendous relief to find someone that can truly listen to you.

Working in a non-judgemental way, I will follow your pace, and support you as you begin to make choices that will improve your well-being, confidence and self-esteem; enabling you to express feelings and experience a self-acceptance that can lead to a more meaningful and fulfilling existence.

I offer short and long term counselling. With an initial assessment; you can then decide if you wish to have further sessions.

Please see below for fees and concessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma Humanistic Counselling. Certificate of Proficiency.

I have 14 years experience working with children who have additional needs, and 10 years experience counselling young people, younger adults and older adults.

I currently work with adults, and young people over 16. I also have a B.A Hons in Art, enabling me to work creatively and with different media, this is particularly useful for those who might struggle to locate emotions, or are perhaps 'scared' of their feelings; creativity can help to unlock and express these safely.

I have undertaken additional training in- trauma, bereavement, anxiety, depression, working with anger and shame, mindfulness, loss and family systems, neurodiversity and working with adolescents, and adolescent development.

I have further undertaken training in using CBT skills with depression, anxiety and panic disorder. most recently I attended training on eating disorders, self-harming behaviours, body image issues specifically for young people, and sleeping problems.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am highly experienced in working with clients who are affected by neuroatypical processing.

Perhaps you have been recently diagnosed with ADHD or Autistic Spectrum difference, or you may have a family member who you struggle to communicate with. Many people are 'wired differently'. I can offer a safe place to share concerns and support with strategies that can be very helpful.
