About me

I am in private practice situated in a discreet rural location on the Kent and Sussex borders. The towns Edenbridge, Crowborough, East Grinstead and Tunbridge Wells are all close by. Whether you need support, are having difficult life experiences, suffering from low mood, anxiety, behavioural or relationship problems counselling can be beneficial to everyone.

During these challenging times where face-to-face meetings may not be possible I am able to offer online therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified therapeutic counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. I have also completed a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Skills and Theory and trained in Suicide Prevention,

My experience ranges from counselling children and young people in educational settings as well as charity organisations working with substance misuse and carers.

I have worked with a variety of people from all walks of life with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Loss, Abuse, Self-Harm and Low self-esteem.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
