Counselling is a great opportunity to help sort out what is going on in your head in a non judgmental, safe place where you can feel comfortable to express your thoughts and feelings which you might never have spoken about before or been able to put into words. Wondering what is going on for you and what to do about it becomes clearer when talked through.
I have lots of experience working with people who have all kinds of personal problems for example; family relationships, bereavement and loss, post natal depression, childhood traumas and abuse, anxiety and depression, traumatic experiences, anger management, stress, eating disorders, relationship issues etc. It does not matter what the problem or how small you might think it, counselling can make all the difference. My job is to help you feel comfortable in the counselling setting.
I began a career in counselling because my own experience of counselling over a number of years was so positive and so I want to encourage you to seek help and support. People I have worked with have already discovered the benefits of counselling for themselves. Why don't you give it a try and email or call me.
I work in a therapeutic professional environment at St Barnabas House in Gillingham, where there is a waiting area and a warm welcome.
Email or telephone me if you want further information or have a question, I will be happy to respond.

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.
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.
