About me

I am trained in a broad range of therapeutic approaches, which enables me to create a flexible style of working to meet individual client needs. These include Integrative Arts Psychotherapy, Integrative Counselling, & Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR). These modalities can be explained further in our initial meetings together when discussing appropriate treatment options.

My aim is to be alongside the client using my knowledge, experience, tools and resources to facilitate a reflective process, which can enable greater insight & understanding, leading to positive change. My approach is relaxed, containing and empathic and I believe that humility and acceptance are important qualities which help to define my style of working.

Use of the arts can enhance the therapeutic process by providing a 'visual language' which can have a more immediate impact than words. This would not necessarily involve using art materials and does not require any skill or previous experience of art-making; for example, tapping in to the imagination, using visualisations and metaphors can help to access, capture and express material, more powerfully and succinctly than words.

EMDR Therapy is more widely recognised as an effective treatment for PTSD & trauma-related issues, & can also help address & process a wide range of issues including anxiety, phobias, stress, grief & addictions. Essentially, EMDR works by tapping into the brain’s Adaptive Information Processing (AIP) system, facilitating a healing process by enabling new connections in neural pathways & memory networks. This allows unprocessed memory elements to be stored in a different form, resulting in a decrease of distressing symptoms & the issue being left in the past.

I have 20 years experience as a Counsellor and 9 years as an Art Therapist in various settings including schools, NHS GP surgeries, family support services, older adult inpatients and therapeutic services for children and adolescents (including Children In Care).

I am currently working in GP surgeries providing short-term counselling under the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) scheme. I also work in private practice in Herne Bay, and for Employer-Assisted therapy services.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a registered Art Psychotherapist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a full member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). I am also an accredited EMDR Practitioner with the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. My practice incorporates professional and ethical codes in accordance with these bodies' guidelines.

I have Professional Civil Liability Insurance cover and an enhanced DBS certificate, available on request.
