About me

A warm welcome from Layide.

I have over 10 years experience of counselling and understand that:

The reality of asking for help and support when faced with challenges can be quite daunting.

We all go through difficult periods of making decisions or changes that appear to be overwhelming and as the saying goes, “can’t see the trees from the woods”. Through the therapeutic relationship between yourself and I, change, recovery and healing can take place on your journey where we can both begin to, see the trees looking so beautifully set apart from the woods.I strongly believe that you have the power inside of you to overcome struggles, pain and conflict so that you can flourish and become the person you truly are.

I will offer you a safe, private and peaceful space to talk about the difficulties you are facing, to reflect on past experiences that may have left you anxious or depressed, and to work alongside you in making the changes that you feel you need.

It really can help to share your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental and confidential environment.

I am based in the Dartford area of Kent near the main train station.
