About me

I am still offering face to face services with social distancing in place, alongside online and telephone counselling.

Evolve Therapy Services aims to offer affordable and effective counselling in Medway for adults and teenagers- in a beautiful and tranquil summer house location in Strood, Rochester.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work within their framework to ensure a safe and ethical practice for you.

My person centred way of being enables you to achieve your goals and explore elements of self in a safe and confidential space- free of judgement. I offer an empathic environment to walk your journey with you, so you can feel heard, listened to and understood. In an accepting environment, we can explore how life is for you, understand your feelings on a deeper level and look at any issues which may be affecting you.

Sessions can be short term, or long term, all depending on your needs. In order to book in for an initial session, or if you'd like to know any more about me, counselling or the process, please contact me via email, text or telephone...  I am here to support you, through expressing your feelings, in the hope to achieve a happier and brighter future.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
