About me

Are you feeling......Stressed? Worried? Anxious? Fed up? Depressed?

Have you experienced trauma?

People decide to visit a counsellor for many reasons, whatever your reason- you are in the right place! If you suspected a broken bone, you would visit the hospital for an x-ray in order to get the treatment you need. When life gets tough or you are having a bad time due to your present circumstances or maybe something happened to you recently or in the past, why not seek someone that you can speak to?

I can offer a confidential, non-judgemental and comfortable space for you to talk and explore whatever you need to at a pace that is comfortable for you.

I work in a person-centred way, which means I believe you are your own expert. I am not here to tell you what to do but what I am here for is to listen, support and help you find a way forward that is best for you. I also like to work creatively and if this is something you would like, we can work together using a range of counselling tools to help you.

Another service I am able to offer is Equine Assisted Learning or Psychotherapy which is based in Southfleet. This is an alternative to traditional counselling, which is more experiential, that takes place in the Kent countryside. No previous experience with horses is needed and no horse riding is involved.

I can work with all ages from 10+. For many years I worked in an Alternative Provision Service for Primary and Secondary aged young people as well as supporting their families. I have years of experience working with Autism, Aspergers, ADHD and all the behaviours that are associated with diagnosis as well as prior to diagnosis.

I understand it can be difficult to enter therapy - you have already made the first move by looking here for a counsellor that you feel you may be able to work with.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
