About me

My name is Teresa and I am a qualified, committed, caring and experienced counsellor and Lecturer of Counselling skills. The service I offer is a confidential, safe and non-judgmental space to explore whatever issues you care to bring. I am dedicated to supporting my clients through challenging times.

I have worked as a counsellor with children and young people in schools and colleges, young adults and staff at university and adults and couples on both a short and long-term basis. As an integrative counsellor I use different approaches and techniques that are tailored to your needs, believing that we are all individual and that 'one size does not fit all'. I also offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprogramming (EMDR) therapy, which is a form of psychotherapy used in the treatment of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and can also be used for a range of other issues including Anxiety. I have also lived and worked extensively in many countries, including Denmark, Bolivia, Qatar, Thailand, India and Bangladesh.

I am currently working for the University of Kent at Canterbury as a counsellor and as a Lecturer of Counselling Skills at Canterbury College as well as working in private practice.

I am an Accredited Registrant with the Counselling Society, a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and abide by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a Member of the International Alliance of Holistic Therapists.  I hold an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service certificate (DBS) and Professional Indemnity insurance.

I offer one to one sessions and messages can be left on my confidential counselling mobile.
