About me

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious or down? Has your child become angry, tearful or withdrawn?

Are you having issues in your relationships, or perhaps you're just wondering how on earth it got to this?

These thoughts and feelings can be isolating and, when allowed to, can take over. 

I am an experienced Integrative Adult Counsellor and Child / Adolescent therapist working within the  NHS and in Private Practice and will gently help you explore the issues that are important to you. Together we will find the possibilities and help you move forward with your life.

It’s a daunting process I know but by seeking help you are showing strength of character and a desire to feel happier. Counselling can help you achieve this as it provides a safe place in which you can explore your personal thoughts and feelings in a confidential and supportive environment. Whatever your age, status or issue, whether adult, child or young person, this neutral space enables us to look at and work through the issues in a calmer, clearer way.

It can allow you the opportunity to air your views, and make the changes you feel would most benefit your life and your relationships.

There is no issue too big or too small.

So let’s look at this together.

Trained as an Integrative counsellor, with my roots firmly in the Person centred approach, I am able to draw from a number of approaches including CBT, Psychodynamic, Solution focused, Creative Art Therapy, Mindfulness and others. This basically means that the therapy is tailored to meet your needs.

I have a wealth of experience in working with:

  • Stress / Anxiety
  • Anger & Shame
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • PTSD
  • Children & Teenagers
  • Low self esteem
  • Affairs & betrayals

  • Sexual Identity

... and life in general.

Based in Ramsgate.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
