About me

I have many years experience working as a therapist from GP surgeries as well as privately, with both young people and adults. I am a warm approachable person and adaptable in my therapy techniques. I believe we are all unique individuals and tailor my therapy to your needs. I work privately from my home near the seaside with clients who may initially be experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety, and working collaboratively we explore and work through what the underlying issues may be together, helping you to find a way forward more positively.

I can help with many issues including: Abuse, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Eating Disorders, Loss, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Post Traumatic Stress, Relationships, Self Esteem, Trauma.

Types of Therapy: Behavioural, Cognitive, Humanistic, Person Centred, Mindfulness/Relaxation.

How I deliver therapy: Face to face, long term and short term work, home visits, telephone/Skype.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma of Higher Education in Person Centred Counselling

Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Kent Safeguarding Children Child Protection

Certificate of Accreditation MBACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist

I have worked with young people (aged 12-19 years old) for 2-3 years helping with the many challenging issues that arise. I have also worked within the NHS environment and NICE guidelines for 8 years with adults, as well as running my own successful practice.

I thoroughly enjoy what I do and how rewarding it can be making a difference to someone's life and seeing the growth and change emerge through self exploration and commitment to the sessions.

I always aim to create a relaxed environment whereby you are made to feel comfortable and safe, listened to and heard.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
