About me

I am a fully qualified Person Centred Therapist and registered member of the BACP. I have experience working with people who have come to therapy for a variety of reasons which may include;

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger Issues
  • Sex and relationship issues
  • Bullying; verbal, emotional and physical
  • Struggling with identity, purpose or meaning in life
  • Gay and bisexual issues and concerns
  • Abandonment, loss and bereavement

From time to time we often feel unable to move on or shift our patterns of behaviour that start to have an affect on our own wellbeing and that of those around us. Our relationships may start to breakdown or we feel unable to be in one all together. We can be finding ourselves isolated, overwhelmed and misunderstood.

It can be hard to work through all this alone, and by being in therapy we can work together in a safe, non judgemental, confidential space where we will work toward building a genuine trusting relationship together. In this supportive, confidential atmosphere you can begin to develop your own stronger sense of self, work on your issues and build a greater sense of self worth. This will then allow you to start making the right choices which will lead to the changes you need to live a more fulfilling, authentic life.

My model of therapy is person centred, which means my approach to how we work together is in developing a trusting working relationship where it is my belief that you have the right answers to how you want to life a more fulfilled life, but they might need some help 'teasing' out.
This is what being in therapy can offer, and this means it can be effective in helping you;

  • Have a better understanding of yourself
  • Lead to you having more peace of mind and acceptance
  • Encourage you make better decisions going forward
  • Help you develop new tools to cope better and to let go of unhealthy behaviour patterns
  • Help you develop your skills for improving relationships with others
  • Lead to a more fulfilling, authentic, happier and open life

I offer both short and long term therapy. If you would like to make an appointment to meet please get in touch.

THE SORTING SPACE FOR MEN IN FOLKESTONE, KENT

  • In the UK men are 3 times more likely to commit suicide than women.
  • Suicide is the most common cause of death for men between age of 20-49

Despite these statistics men are much less likely to reach out for support compared to women. Latest statistics suggest only 16% of counselling clients are men. Men grow up being told to 'be brave', to 'be strong', and 'do not cry'... and often hear 'don't be a baby', or 'Man up!'...

Men do want to talk, but it's often the case that they don't know that there are spaces they can go where they will feel comfortable to do this. It is a sad fact that a lot of men don't even realise therapy is something for them as well. It can always feel scary to think you might need to talk to a professional, but equally men can find it difficult to open up to their friends and family.

THE SORTING SPACE is a safe, confidential space for men to talk, to work their stuff out without judgement or interpretation. A place where you can develop a trusting relationship and talk about what's going on for you.

Some of the reasons men come to counselling include;

  • Sex or Relationship Issues
  • Work Issues
  • Bullying, verbal, emotional or physical
  • Issues at work
  • Gay and bisexual issues or struggling to come out D
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Coming to terms with loss, bereavement
  • Struggling to live an authentic life
