Is Anxiety, Stress, Feeling stuck, or those niggling self doubts, impacting on your life?
Why not take the step to understand where these issues come from?
That first step to bring about change and take charge of your life, is by making the move towards asking for help.
I offer a compassionate, empathic, down to earth and non-judgemental approach within a confidential and private location.
I feel that we could all appreciate an M.O.T. for the mind. Therapy is our workbench.
By using counselling and psycho-educational coaching skills, and with your intention to find healing, it's possible to reach the understanding of why you think the way you do, helping bring resolution and resilience towards positive lasting change, and contented, happy relationships
Whilst working together you can get a better understanding of hidden patterns of behaviour, discovering latent self empowerment to make better choices, taking you forwards towards feeling less anxious, more confident, and with a new and empowering life changing self-awareness, making a difference to your life and those around you.
Talking about your concerns, and being listened to unconditionally, encourages you to contact your inner feelings, helping you to discover any blocks that may be holding you back. Working together we can enable you to reach new knowledge and understanding, so you think differently, encouraging positive change and opening up avenues of exciting new potential. Also, by understanding hidden patterns of behaviour, you can make better choices, taking you forwards towards feeling less anxious, more confident, and with a new and empowering life changing self-awareness, making a difference to your life and those around you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been interested in the workings of the human mind since the mid 90's when I began my own journey of self discovery, dragged into a Psychology workshop by good friends.
I work within a Humanistic framework as a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor, both privately and within the NHS IAPT environment. I facilitate self awareness training programmes, and have promoted psychology workshops in Kent since 2005.
I work Holistically, recognising connections between our mind and body, utilising the power that is greater than ourselves, and the natural energy of life.
I work either short term within a solution focused framework of 6-12 sessions, or long term. These can be discussed at our initial meeting, depending on your needs.
I have experience working with a broad range of issues including
Core issues from childhood
Bereavement and Loss
Work related stress
I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and am a Graduate of the Psychology of Vision International Training Program.
I am a facilitator of a new biologically based process through which the brain heals itself.
I have trained and practised as a Certified Cruse Bereavement Volunteer, and have completed many of their trainings.
I am keen to learn, and attend regular workshops and seminars, so I can pass these new skills on to my clients. I have also attended global psychology workshops since 2003.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and Accredited Member of The Counselling Society.
I am fully insured, with a present DBS and attend regular supervision.
My Practice is in central Faversham, within a quiet private courtyard, with public parking nearby, and a few minutes walk from the Rail Station.
