About me

I practice in both Tunbridge Wells & Wadhurst which are both easily accessible from;

  • Crowborough
  • Rotherfield
  • Heathfield
  • Tonbridge
  • and Paddock Wood

A qualified and experienced BACP accredited counsellor in Wadhurst.   Do you suffer from anxiety, depression or relationship issues?  Would you like to be free from the past to live a full and happy life now? Evening & day time appointments available. Free initial consultation.

I offer non-judgemental, confidential, therapeutic counselling where you can feel completely heard and supported while gently exploring what is troubling you. As well as supporting you to find the best way forward I will share techniques to calm anxiety, lift depression and calm obsessive thinking.

Alongside my general counselling practice I specialise in pregnancy, birth and early years parenting, including termination, miscarriage, birth trauma and postnatal depression. I have many years experience of supporting women around pregnancy, birth and early years parenting in an NHS setting.

I am trained in Person Centered Counselling and Transactional Analysis and can call on various theoretical approaches depending on individual client need.

Transactional Analysis offers a particular framework for looking at our past and how it may be impacting on the present, helping us to understand why we think, feel and behave the way we do and,through bringing this into awareness, providing the opportunity for change.

I am fully supported by professional supervisors and dedicated to keeping my practice up to date through ongoing continuing professional development.

I offer a free initial consultation where we can take time to fully discuss your needs with no obligation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited member of the BACP, with many years experience of working with people with a wide variety of issues and in a range of settings, including charitable organisations and the NHS, as well as private practice.

I hold a Diploma in Counselling with Transactional Analysis speciality and have additional accredited training in Bereavement Care.

Having also completed four years advanced psychotherapy training I am in the process of gaining UKCP accreditation.

My previous career in childcare and early years together with my recent work within the Perinatal Mental Health Service has inspired a particular interest in Postnatal Depression and Birth Trauma and working with women’s issues around pregnancy, childbirth and early motherhood.

In addition to this I have wide ranging experience of working with depression, anxiety,including generalised anxiety disorder & panic attacks, and relationship issues.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
