About me

I am a qualified integrative transpersonal counsellor and psychotherapist, which means I draw upon a number of different modalities; adapting my therapeutic approach to what works best for the individual at every stage of their healing journey.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to openly explore whatever has brought you to therapy. My approach embodies warmth, compassion and a deep heartfelt commitment to supporting you on every level of your being.

Sessions can be used to enquire into any specific difficulties you might be experiencing, to gain an insight into a more general sense of struggle in your life or perhaps to connect with deeper, more authentic aspects of self - all with the hope of helping you to better navigate life and improve your wellbeing.

I have experience of working with a diverse range of issues, but have a particular interest in helping empower women to step into their true power, chronic health issues, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse, burnout and the reawakening of vitality, human life-stages and the specific challenges these bring, holistic health and the spiritual dimension of life.

Experience

I have 5+ years of experience as a voluntary counsellor and psychotherapist in the charity sector. I have been working for 5 years with MIND (2016 to present) and spent 18 months with East Kent Rape Crisis Centre (2016 - 2018). Both placements included short and long term work.

I have also recently qualified as an Ecstatic Awakening Dance Teacher with the School of Ecstatic Movement.

Prior to training to become a psychotherapist, I worked in commercial roles in the fresh food retail sector for over 15 years. I have personal experience of working in stressful, corporate environments and understand first-hand the challenges this can bring - particularly with regards to work-life balance, loss of self and burnout.

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.
