About me

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Being an integrative counsellor means I am able to offer counselling that fits you and is not as restrictive as a single type of therapy. I practice Person-centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which enables me to move and change as you move through different experiences that have impacted or raised issues within your life, be it in the past, present or future.

I think that the relationship between client and counsellor is an important one which is built from a foundation of confidentiality, non-judgment and a safe environment. As a counsellor I look to support you while we explore your different experiences, feelings and what that means to you. This can range from talking about difficult and sometimes painful topics to feelings of relief in being able to finally address a hidden issue. It is my aim to provide a warm, safe relationship in order to promote development and change.

I am a private counsellor with offices in Maidstone, Gravesend and Medway. I also work as a helpline manager and counsellor for Family Matters Charity UK which means I have experience in a wide range of different and complex issues. If you are interested in seeing a counsellor, I'd be happy to talk.
