I became a Counsellor as I love helping people and seeing them develop personally and find healing and freedom. I offer one to one therapeutic counselling for adults in Maidstone and surrounding areas.
I provide a safe, professional and confidential service, offering an understanding, empathic and non-judgemental approach. It can be very freeing for you to talk about your innermost life, whilst being accepted just as you are.
My approach is humanistic, so I will not give you advice, but encourage you to talk and help support you in your journey of personal development by gaining your own insights and understanding in a safe and confidential environment. Each person’s therapy will differ and be tailored to your individual needs.
Counselling is a worthwhile investment in you, with many benefits including gaining a greater self-awareness and understanding of yourself and others, thus reflecting in your relationships. It can help you to move on from issues that you feel may be holding you back and impacting your life negatively, improve self-esteem, confidence and feeling better about who you are. It can help with practically addressing problems, finding solutions and strategies to improve your life. Along with helping with a vast range of psychological and emotional matters. Ultimately, affecting the whole person and improving your well-being.
The relationship between therapist and client is key, so it is important you and I feel happy working together. In our first session, there will be opportunity to discuss what your hopes are from counselling and to ask any questions.
