About me

Hi, you may be flicking through all these profiles trying to decide how to choose the right counsellor for you.

I understand this may feel like a daunting task, but it is a brave thing you are doing to be taking these first steps. For me the key to successful counselling is the relationship made during the process. I work in a way that provides you with a safe environment to explore whatever brings you to counselling.

I truly believe than anyone can benefit from having a space purely to express themselves in an open minded atmosphere. I came into counselling as I feel everyone should have someone to talk to.

I have worked with many different types of clients including survivors of domestic violence, abuse, young people, children, prisoners and many more.

I use an integrative approach to counselling, this means as every client is individual and unique I aim to use the style best suited to you. I can offer short term or long term counselling, whatever you feel is best for you.

I have face to face sessions on offer in Gravesend. I am also happy to do video or telephone sessions.

If you any queries or would like to book an appointment please get in touch.

Member organisations

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.
