About me

Hello, and thank you for visiting my page. I'm an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with over 10 years experience across my private practice, Relate and schools counselling. I have a Masters in Relationship Therapy and an Advanced Diploma in Couples Counselling and am registered with the BACP.

Feeling anxious, depressed or sad, struggling with life and self esteem? I work flexibly, drawing on a number of different approaches to find a way that best suits you. I provide a safe, empathetic and confidential space where you can talk things through without being judged, and be listened to with understanding and compassion. My clients tell me they find me personable, easy to talk to and that they feel understood and respected in our sessions.

I work with couples, families, individuals, and children aged 11 - 18 in Brenchley, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood, Horsmonden and the surrounding areas.

If you feel uncertain please call me free of charge to ask any questions and discuss your needs:

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.

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.
