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 at university and adults 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 have also lived and worked extensively in many countries overseas, 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. I also work as a volunteer counsellor for Community Counselling Service in Canterbury as well as working in private practice.

I am an Accredited Registrant with the Counselling Society and I am 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 and 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.
