About me

I think that choosing a counsellor from the internet is a bit like choosing anything from the internet; you decide from the picture and write up whether it might be right for you, but you never really know until you meet your choice, which is why I offer a free of charge first consultation(up to 30 minutes).

I am a qualified integrative counsellor, which means that I can draw on a range of skills aiming to find the way of working which suits you best. The best outcome for therapy is achieved when there is a good relationship between counsellor and client, and I firmly believe that our work together is a collaborative effort.

Often the difficulties which we struggle with in life aren’t developed in an instant, so I feel that they’re probably not going to be solved in an instant either, which is why I offer long term as well as short term therapy. My client work experience has included issues such as:

  • Chronic pain/Fibromyalgia
  • Hoarding behaviours
  • Transgender
  • Addiction
  • B.P.D
  • Relationship and attachment difficulties
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bereavement
  • Attachment issues
  • P.T.S.D
  • Abuse.

Although working primarily with adults, I have also worked with children victims of crime in an emotional supporting capacity. I also split my work between private practice and voluntary/non-profit.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and registered counsellor holding a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. This is an integrative qualification which means I am able to be guided by various models. I have also trained in Bereavement Care and CBT skills.

I have experienced of working with people who suffer with chronic pain conditions, victims of crime, bereaved clients and for the last few years I have worked within a very busy counselling service in Canterbury which offers affordable therapy to the local community.
