You might be feeling stressed, frustrated, low in mood or confidence; have a depression or struggle with anxiety. Maybe you have relationship difficulties, a long-term illness or chronic pain or have problems managing anger or other emotions. Perhaps a bereavement or loss troubles you or a trauma or abuse from the past and you feel that you can’t really talk to those who are close to you about it.
I offer a friendly and relaxed space in which to explore whatever is on your mind. I listen very carefully to you and sometimes help you to see your issues from a different perspective. I wont judge you for your experience and offer an opportunity to understand some of the how? and why? of who you are, where you are going and where you want to be.
We all seem to carry our scars and sometimes they hold us back from being the whole person that we could be. Pathways Counselling is a safe and confidential place to talk freely. A place where you can begin to make positive changes in your life towards better health and well-being, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Feel free to call, text or email me for an initial chat about how I might be able to help you. Following this we can book a session to explore this further and agree how we might go forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified with a CPCAB Diploma in Counselling and therapy in June 2018. I did my apprentice placement with a GP surgery and with Canterbury Community Counselling Centre. I have since been employed by Dover Counselling Centre and continue to offer community counselling with the centre there as well as setting up in private practice. I currently work from home via zoom for all sessions.
I have practiced Short Term Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Transaction Analysis techniques, and long term Person Centred Counselling.
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.

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).
