About me

Are you looking to make sense of where you are? Do you long to say what’s really going on for you? Do you feel that life is more than you can handle on your own? Perhaps you are you struggling with a relationship? If you are feeling overwhelmed or lost, struggling with life’s stresses and anxiety but think now is the time to address your difficulties - then I invite you to read on.                                          Working as an integrative therapist means that I focus on addressing your needs, whilst offering you established techniques and strategies to improve symptoms of stress, anxiety or low mood. I will also be supporting you on your journey to discover solutions which can bring resolution, recovery and healing.                                                                            
Counselling can offer personal growth, developing healthier relationships, and a  greater ability to trust yourself, achieving better self-awareness. It can release feelings of guilt, insecurity and defensiveness, and offer improvements in self expression and achieve a healthy sense of change overall.

Within an empathic, accepting and non-judgmental relationship, we will work together at your pace to recognise your strengths, creativity and choices. I offer a place for you to pause; make sense of where you are, to say what's going on & be heard. I am also informed that ‘kindness’ is my superpower.

Working with anxiety, stress, low mood, life/relationship issues, addiction, trauma, self-harm, abuse & loss. I believe in hope, possibility and that everyone has the power to change. I believe that there is always a choice; or another way. I work with adults, and young people irrespective of religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, race or nationality.

I offer face to face individual counselling for adults, and young people. Sessions are held weekly in a pleasant, comfortable private room conveniently located in Southborough, Tunbridge Wells with free parking and a bus stop nearby.

If illness or transport make it difficult for you, it may be possible for me to visit you weekly in your home.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
