About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my Counselling Directory page. I work in a peaceful space in Deal, Kent.  I work with couples and individuals, offering a safe environment, professionalism, confidentiality and non-judgemental manner. I adhere to the ethical framework of The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP); of which I am a registered member.  I am also an accredited member of the National Counselling Society.

I offer both Relationship Counselling for couples and Individual Counselling.

How can counselling help? Counselling sessions will give you the opportunity to talk about issues and problems you are facing, and help you have a better understanding of yourself and make changes where you choose to. Counselling can also help in many other ways including:

  • overcoming difficulties
  • developing your self-awareness
  • making sense of your thoughts and feelings
  • having more control in your life

What to expect in your first session: The first session will be a consultation/assessment so that we can discuss your needs and the problems you feel you would like to work through.

I offer focused short-term work and in-depth longer term therapy. Sessions are arranged for a mutually convenient time and are either weekly or fortnightly.

My counselling training was integrative, however I work in a person-centred manner and with the flexibility to incorporate integrative approaches. I am sensitive to the needs of my clients and will work with you to address your problems in a caring manner.

As well as working in private practice I also work for an IAPT service. My previous experience includes working with teenagers and young people at an international college, and voluntary counselling for a community agency and bereavement agency. I have experience working with those suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, other mental health issues, relationship problems, trauma, loss, grief, bereavement and a range of other issues.

My location in Deal has free street parking.
