About me

Hi my name is Becky, and I run Kind Counselling based in Lydd Kent. People matter to me. I love to see people thrive and do well and I love how unique and wonderful we all are. Sometimes, we all get stuck and find life hard. My passion in life is to see people restored, to be more who they want to be. I'm an integrative Counsellor who supports people who are suffering with Stress, Anxiety, Anger, Depression and Addictions.

Life can be really difficult and throw us tough situations and challenges. I can appreciate how difficult it can be and navigating this moments in life and how we deal with them can impact on our mental health. 

You might feel totally overwhelmed with anxiety or worry, or perhaps you feel numb, unable to deal with the pain or sadness you are feeling. It could be that perhaps talking to friends and family is awkward, or maybe you feel totally alone with no one to turn to. Coming to counselling you will experience ‘being truly heard’.

Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings and explore what has brought you to therapy. Within a comfortable, safe indoor space with warmth and compassion at my counselling room located in Lydd Kent. 

To explore the narrative from “what’s wrong with me?” to “what’s happened to me?”

Coming to counselling is a huge step forward but can also feel daunting. Talking about your emotions might even seem scary. I will provide a safe, confidential space for you to explore your feelings. Which involves discussing such things as important people in your life, key life events and how you feel about them, as well as how you respond to your environment and the people around you. You are at the centre of our work together and I will ensure that the therapy progresses at your pace.

Clients that come to therapy have different aims and outcomes that they want to achieve. Regardless of your reasons for seeking counselling, I believe it can help you to process your experiences, develop a healthier mind set and ultimately enable you to learn self-acceptance and to lead a happier and more positive life in the future.

Along side my private practice, I work at a secondary school as the school counsellor working with teenagers and teaching staff. I also spent two years at a counselling placement for survivors of domestic abuse. 


Neurodivergent/Autism spectrum disorder ASD/ ADHD / - Neurodivergent clients  may feel misunderstood/ ostracised/ lack sense of belonging, the systems/ institutions set up to guide often compounding these feelings. Therapy may be about unravelling and healing from such experiences. The kind of therapeutic relationship and approach required is different for each person and can change with time, so openness, curiosity and collaboration are at the heart of my practice, the aim being to establish sensory, social, emotional and relational safety.

Just to Talk - Sometimes, we just need to talk. There may not be a big thing to sort or an obstacle to move. but there is still a desire to talk things over, to work matters out and to feel more at peace. This is a place to sit, to talk and to process.

Children and Young People - Is your child finding life difficult? Have you noticed a change in them? Then maybe talking to a trained counsellor will help. Are you a young person who feels misunderstood, anxious or just needing to talk about issues that you find hard to come to terms with? Maybe counselling is for you.

Stuck in life - Do you feel you have become stuck in life? That your life should have gone a different direction? That you don't know how to move forward? Maybe talking it through with a trained counsellor will help you?

Too Many Choices -Are you overwhelmed by what faces you? Do you have choices that are just too hard to make? Are you anxious of doing the wrong thing? Then maybe talking these choices through with a trained counsellor is just right for you.

Change in circumstances - Has there been a major change or disruption in your life? Have your children left home? Has there been a relationship change that has rocked you to the core? Have there been circumstances out of your control that have forced unwanted change on you? Maybe talking it through with a trained counsellor will help you to find a way through this.

Bereavement and grief - Have you suffered a loss recently that you cannot come to terms with? Have you lost somebody dear to you? Have you left a life behind that will not stay in the past? Are you grieving for a promise not realised or a life that has not materialised? All of these could be grief and you could be experiencing bereavement. Whatever your loss is, talking about it will help. Contact me and we can arrange a time to talk.

Numbness and lack of feeling -Have you cut yourself off from all emotion and feeling? Do you find feelings hard to connect with? Do you feel numb and not part of what is going on about you? Come and talk to me about it to find a way to be who you want to be.

Bitterness - Do you feel bitter about where you are now? Do you wish things had turned out differently? Do you find yourself always looking backwards so that all joy is being sucked out of your life? If you do, come and talk to me, a trained counsellor, to find a way of life you are happier in.

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.
