Working as a Jungian Psychotherapist, Integrative Counsellor, healer and Reiki Master, and Thought Field Therapist means I work holistically. Every aspect of you is included in therapy - mental, physical, emotional, and at the soul level. I believe we do contain everything we need to know - whether we carry that consciously or unconsciously. When we get in touch with both conscious and unconscious motives and drivers, and how they manifest as behaviours, we are able to make choices and to be more of our true selves. I have run my private practice for 8 years & am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy.

There's a first time for everything. Most newcomers to counselling & psychotherapy start out feeling a little intimidated by the idea of this rather mysterious process. I aim to demystify what I do - clients often comment on what they describe as a down-to-earth and accessible approach. My aim is ultimately to help you understand yourself and your behaviour. I feel that goal is best achieved by working in a non-threatening, straightforward and inclusive way.

I believe that therapy is not only meant to be for people with an identified 'problem' but can also be a tool for personal growth and self-development. All of us experience difficulties at some point or another, whether it's related to work or relationships or feeling stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour. I use an integrative approach, drawing on various therapeutic models to support my clients in managing their difficulties. I am a trained EMDR therapist and find that EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) therapy is particularly effective in working with people who have experienced trauma, grief and anxiety.

I strive to be an approachable, warm and accepting counsellor who can offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I work Integratively, but underlying my theoretical approach is a belief in autonomy and the tendency towards growth and the possibility of change. These are the hallmarks of the humanistic tradition, and whilst I occasionally draw from behavioural approaches, I do so from a philosophically person centered standpoint. Essentially, I can help facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions only, through using a Solution Focused approach.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Ashford are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Ashford then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Ashford, or Child Psychologists in Ashford.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Ashford psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Ashford specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
