About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed with negative thoughts and emotions of any kind? Are you finding everyday life just a bit too much at the moment? Do you feel isolated and alone, even if it appears to others the opposite? When did you last put yourself first - or is it easier not to? If any of the above rings a bell, or indeed you are struggling with something else, my role as a counsellor is to support you, and provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. In doing this together we can work towards helping you to feel better about yourself and what it is that is troubling you.

As a person centred counsellor, the counselling sessions I offer are client-led, meaning that I will value you at all times. Together we will work on the things which you feel are most important. I offer both short and longer term approaches meaning that we can move at a pace to suit you; together we will find a way of working which feels comfortable for you, and you will feel less alone in the process. 

My values as a counsellor include warmth, openness, respectfulness and humour, meaning that I work in a friendly, down-to-earth way to build a strong therapeutic relationship helping you to feel safe to talk about, and explore whatever's going on for you.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work

Daytimes and early evenings with my final appointment time being 7.00pm

Further information

I have rooms in two separate locations, one mid way between Maidstone, Ashford and Tenterden, and the other half way between Sittingbourne and Maidstone. Both are on the ground floor. Alternatively if you’d prefer remote sessions I do also offer online and telephone sessions - I know that for some people they find it more comfortable or maybe easier to not sit face to face! For others it might just be more convenient to work remotely.

I can offer flexible hours including evenings, with my final session commencing at 7.00pm.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
