About me

Sometimes, something just isn't right. You don't need to have the answers, or even be clear about what you need as, hopefully, you can put your trust in me to help you. All of us are so different so I have developed a range of skills so I can fit best with you. I work with adults, young people from age 11 and with relationships using the skills and experience that I have developed from dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, addictions, relationship issues, stress, as well as managing anger, panic, fear, trauma and child sexual abuse.

Learn to understand yourself and develop different ways of being .

My comfortable and confidential therapy room is in my home in Dartford, or I can visit you at home. Appointments can be made for various times of day across the week. My service is completely confidential and is focused on what you need as an individual without judgement and with respect.

Sessions last for 60 minutes and I can offer them weekly or fortnightly. You may wish to focus on an issue that can be worked with on a short term basis and open ended therapy is also available.

  • Autism, intellectual diversity

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
