About me

For many different reasons we can find experiences or aspects of our lives very difficult to understand or deal with; sometimes life can feel overwhelming, and it takes immense courage to begin the work of understanding the things that are unsettling us so it's really important to choose a counsellor that is right for you so that you can feel comfortable enough to discuss your thoughts and feelings in confidence, without being judged.

I am an empathic, impartial and trained counsellor and I am both a Registered and Accredited counsellor and I am able to listen to you in a non-judgemental way within a safe, confidential environment and to work with you at your own pace to help you to develop a better understanding of yourself, how your relationship has developed with others, or to explore difficult feelings and circumstances, and for you to find your own solutions.

I can offer either short-term or longer-term therapy.

I call my counselling service "Waythrough Counselling" because as a client you will be embarking on a journey which will involve increasing your own self awareness which may at times may feel uncomfortable, but it is a valuable learning space to find your own "way through".

I am passionate about improving access to counselling and when I lived in Croydon I began a low cost counselling service and developed a small team of counsellors to help meet the shortfall in mental health provision and to make talking therapies more available and affordable.

Also, to ensure you receive the best possible service from me, I maintain monthly Professional Supervision (which is confidential). I also undergo regular Continual Professional Development throughout the year.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in 2010 gaining a L4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB) and my counselling approach is "integrative" which means that I use various counselling approaches to inform me in my work with you. I have volunteered and worked within different agency settings, both in Dartford (where I was a counsellor and also assisted the Agency Manager in the running of the agency) and Croydon.

I am an Registered & Accredited Counsellor with ACC.

Freedom Programme Facilitator and Domestic Abuse Educator.
