I am an integrative counsellor working essentially from a person-centred (Rogers) and Erskine's approach.
Working creatively and uniquely with each client is, I believe vitally important. You come with your own individual experience and way of being, which I will attune to and then support you on your path to a better place. I believe that you have the understanding and solutions within you and my role is to help you find them in a gentle way.
The relationship and trust between us is key - which is why I offer a free initial consultation for you to meet me and me you at the Manor Barn where I mainly work.
Entering counselling is an important and serious choice. We meet regularly to work together, which will mean some difficult things will have to be faced - but there is certainly plenty of joy to be shared too along the way. I see it as an adventure to find the real you and can be liberating.
I am in my 50s and so have a wealth of my own life experiences that have brought me to this place. I feel it is a deep privilege to work with my clients - and they teach me continually!
Recently, I have produced a set of Lovelli therapy cards which I work with and run workshops with therapists to explore how images can be used with clients. It can be very powerful, so we have to be gentle and sensitive in this work.
Venue - I work at the beautiful Manor Barn, on the outskirts of Canterbury with countryside around. It is quiet and peaceful with plenty of parking. See the photos below - and a link to a few more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/lovelli/albums/72157680821500604
BLOG - I have started a small and brief counselling blog which you might be interested in. http://sue871.wixsite.com/lovelli-counselling/news-1
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (ABC)
Twenty + years of experience working with Re-evaluation Counselling.
I have worked with numerous clients with a variety of presenting issues - but I see every person as unique and often find that what a person comes with is often not what they eventually decide to work on. We are all complex and unravelling is a huge part of the process.

- Affairs and betrayals
- Anger management
- Carer support
- Child related issues
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
